Violinist Emilie-Anne Gendron, lauded as a “brilliant soloist” by the New
York Times, enjoys an active freelance career. She gave last season’s
opening recital at the Louvre, where her performance was praised for its
“excellent technical mastery” and “undeniable sensitivity” (ClassiqueInfo).
A deeply committed chamber musician, she recently recorded the Mendelssohn
Octet with Gil Shaham for Canary Classics, and will join the 2011 Marlboro
Music Festival. Based in New York, Ms. Gendron is a core member of the
acclaimed conductor-less Sejong Soloists; the Momenta Quartet, recipients of
the prestigious Koussevitzky Music Foundation commission grant; and the
Toomai Quintet, on the roster of Carnegie Hall's "Musical Connections"
outreach program. She is a past winner of the Stulberg String Competition
and took 2nd Prize and the Audience Prize at the 2009 Sion-Valais (formerly
Tibor Varga) International Violin Competition. Ms. Gendron was trained at
Juilliard where her principal teachers were Won-Bin Yim, Dorothy DeLay,
David Chan, and Hyo Kang. She holds a B.A. in Classics from Columbia as a
graduate of the Columbia-Juilliard joint-degree program, and a Master of
Music degree and an Artist Diploma from Juilliard.
