Nazrin Rashidova is a soloist, recitalist, chamber musician and orchestral director, whose musical acumen is ensuring a unique place for her in the music world. The Azerbaijani-born, British violin virtuoso made her solo début at the age of three in Baku and was awarded a gold medal by the Cairo Opera House for an exceptional violin recital three years later. Establishing FeMusa in 2008, Britain’s first female chamber orchestra in sixty years, is merely the latest in a series of achievements. She entered the Royal Academy of Music in London at the age of fifteen, acclaimed by the former principal as “one of the most talented musicians to have walked through its doors in forty years”. She studied with professors Gruenberg, Andrievsky and Mordkovitch. A prizewinner of several international competitions, she has performed in the United States, Europe and the Middle East, and also played for Royalty and other dignitaries. She plays the 1699 ‘Crespi’ violin by Antonio Stradivari, kindly on loan from the Royal Academy of Music.
