Krysia Osostowicz (violin)

Krysia Osostowicz is one of the leading violinists of her generation and founder of the Dante Quartet. She 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 which toured with its own portable concert hall – a geodesic dome – winning a worldwide audience and two Gramophone awards. Krysia has made over 30 CD recordings of solo, duo and ensemble repertoire, including the sonatas of Brahms, Fauré and Bartók for Hyperion. Her recordings of Edmund Rubbra’s violin sonatas are described as “performances of flawless integrity”. Krysia is also principal violinist of Endymion Ensemble, teaches at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and gives masterclasses in England and France. Born in London of a Polish family, Krysia studied at the Yehudi Menuhin School and Cambridge University and her teachers have included Yehudi Menuhin, Alberto Lysy, Sándor Végh and Ferenc Rados.
