Krysia Osostowicz

A splendid opportunity for the string players of King Edward’s School and King Edward VI High School for Girls: Krysia Osostowicz, one of the finest players and teachers of her generation, gives a masterclass.

The class will take place on Wednesday, 15 January, between 1030 and 1600 in the Ruddock Hall; all are welcome to attend some or part of the day. Below, Krysia’s biography:


Krysia Osostowicz enjoys a busy career as a chamber musician, soloist and teacher. In 1995 she founded the Dante String Quartet which is recognised as one of Britain’s finest ensembles, winning a Royal Philharmonic Society Award in 2007.

Born in London of Polish descent, Krysia studied at the Yehudi Menuhin School, at Cambridge University and in Salzburg with Sandor Vegh.  She has made a series of award-winning recordings for Hyperion, including sonatas by Bartok, Brahms and Ravel, and the string quartets of Debussy, Sibelius, Smetana and Kodaly.

Krysia teaches at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and has given masterclasses in the UK, France and Spain. She is artistic director of the thriving Dante Summer Festival in the Tamar Valley (www.dantefestival.org) in the West of England.  In 2015 she will play all of Beethoven’s Violin Sonatas, plus ten newly commissioned companion pieces, with pianist Daniel Tong at Kings Place and elsewhere in the UK: details on www.beethovenplus.com.
