Krysia Osostowicz (violinist) has given concerto and recital performances across Europe and made a series of award-winning recordings. From 1985-1995 she played with Domus, the pioneering piano quartet with its own travelling concert hall, a geodesic dome, winning a world-wide audience and two Gramophone Awards. Last year she created a new project, “Beethoven Plus!” with pianist Daniel Tong, touring the UK with Beethoven’s complete violin sonatas plus ten newly commissioned companion pieces. Their recording of the complete cycle has recently been released on SOMM Records. Born in London of a Polish family, Krysia studied at the Yehudi Menuhin School and Cambridge University, and her teachers have included Yehudi Menuhin, Sándor Végh and Ferenc Rados. She is also principal violinist of Endymion Ensemble and is much in demand as a teacher of violin and chamber music at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
