      "She plays with a poise, authority and musical intelligence beyond her years, sounding at times like a fiery young Ida Haendel."

      /Hilary Finch, „The Times”, London 14th October 2010/

      Winner of the 13th Henryk Wieniawski International Violin Competition in Poznań in 2006, Agata Szymczewska was awarded the Prize of the Audience and most special prizes, including major orchestra and recital engagements. She is also the winner of the London Music Masters Award in 2009.

      The artist has performed in the most prestigious concert halls including New York’s Carnegie Hall, Chicago Symphony Hall, Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., Wigmore Hall in London, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Philharmonie in Berlin, Sala Sao Paulo in Brazil, Seoul Arts Center and in China, Japan, Canada, Taiwan, Chile, Columbia and Israel under the baton of Seiji Ozawa, Sir Neville Marriner, Andrey Boreyko, Krzysztof Penderecki, Maxim Vengerov, Michał Nesterowicz and Krzysztof Urbański.

      In 2005, on the invitation of Maestro Sejii Ozawa, Szymczewska became the concertmaster of his orchestra on a tour of Japan and China. She was a regular participant in the prestigious Summer Music Academy in Switzerland, founded by Maestro Ozawa, where she has worked under the tutelage of such outstanding artists as Pamela Frank, Nobuko Imai, Sadao Harada, and Robert Mann. In February 2009, together with Krystian Zimerman she performed Grażyna Bacewicz’s piano quintets to commemorate the centenary of the composer’s birth. The tour culminated with the recording of an album on the Deutsche Grammophon label.

      Agata Szymczewska performs regularly with Anne-Sophie Mutter and „Mutter’s Virtuosi”, touring four continents since 2014. Her chamber music partners include also Martha Argerich, Yuri Bashmet, Gidon Kremer, Maxim Vengerov and Mischa Maisky. She is also the 1st violinist of the Szymanowski Quartet, an internationally recognized ensemble performing regularly around the world.

      Born in Gdańsk in 1985, Szymczewska began to study the violin at the age of six at the State School of Music in Koszalin. She graduated from the Paderewski Academy of Music in Poznań, where she studied with Professor Bartosz Bryła, and the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hannover, from the class of Professor Krzysztof Węgrzyn. In October 2010, she became a faculty member at the Academy of Music in Poznań and since 2016 at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw.

      She currently plays a Nicolò Gagliano violin (1755), loaned courtesy of Anne-Sophie Mutter.
