The Azerbaijani-born British violin virtuoso, soloist, recitalist, chamber musician and orchestral director, 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, where she had the privilege to play on a rare collection of violins by Antonio Stradivari. She studied with professors Erich Gruenberg, Felix Andrievsky and Lydia Mordkovitch.

A prizewinner in several international competitions, she has appeared on international television and radio, played for royalty and other dignitaries, and has also performed in the United States, Japan, Europe and the Middle East.

Rashidova’s two recordings for Naxos—Godowsky’s music for violin and piano (8.573058), released in 2013—and Moszkowski’s violin and piano works (8.573410), were acclaimed by The Strad and Gramophone magazines. Her latest album Carnival was released in 2016 on First Hand Records, featuring popular classical works, arranged for violin and guitar.

Nazrin is pursuing a PhD at the Royal Academy of Music, where her research explores Émile Sauret and his 24 Études-Caprices. She plays on a violin after G. B. Guadagnini Milan 1753, ‘Nazrin’, by David Rattray.
