Biography

One of the world's most acclaimed classical violinists, Lisa Batiashvili – born in Tbilisi, Georgian SSR, Soviet Union on March 7, 1979 - has achieved great eminence not merely for the technical brilliance and purity of tone of her many recordings for the Deutsche Grammophon label, but also for her work with many of the world's greatest orchestras. She has been based in Germany since her family moved there when she was 12, by which time she was already an accomplished musician. She was raised by her pianist mother and her violinist father, both of whom taught her their respective instruments while she was still a child. She went on to be study at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg. In 1995, at the age of 16, she was the youngest artist to enter the prestigious International Jean Sibelius Violin Competition, where she won second prize. Lisa Batiashvili went on to collaborate in chamber concerts and concertos with cellist Alban Gerhardt and pianist Steven Osborne, setting her on the way to becoming one of the world's most renowned instrumentalists. In 2006, she played in America for the first time, premiering a violin concerto written for her by Magnus Lindberg. After a decade recording several albums for the EMI Classics and Sony Classical labels, she signed with Deutsche Grammophon in 2011 and released the acclaimed Echoes of Time. Further releases for the label include Tchaikovsky: Pathétique (2013), Bach (2014), Waldbühne: Czech Night (2016), and Visions of Prokofiev (2018). Lisa Batiashvili has also worked with and built close relationships with many great orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, Staatskapelle Berlin, Berliner Philharmoniker, Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, Chamber Orchestra of Europe and London Symphony Orchestra. In 2022, she collaborated with music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Philadelphia Orchestra on the album Secret Love Letters.
