About Simone Lamsma

Hailed for her “brilliant… polished, expressive and intense” (Cleveland Plain Dealer) and“absolutely stunning” (Chicago Tribune) playing, Dutch violinist Simone Lamsma is respected by critics, peers and audiences as one of classical music’s most striking and captivating musical personalities.

With an extensive repertoire of over 60 Violin Concertos, Simone’s recent seasons have seen her perform with many of the world’s leading orchestras.

Simone began studying the violin at the age of 5 and moved to the UK aged 11 to study at the Yehudi Menuhin School with Professor Hu Kun. At the age of 14 Simone made her professional solo debut with the North Netherlands Orchestra performing Paganini’s 1st Violin Concerto, her debut highly praised by the press. She continued her studies at the Royal Academy of Music in London with Professor Hu Kun and Professor Maurice Hasson, where she graduated aged 19 with first class honours and several prestigious awards. In 2011, she was made an Associate of the RAM, an honour given to those students who have made significant and distinguished contributions to their field. Simone currently lives in The Netherlands.

Simone plays the “Mlynarski” Stradivarius (1718), on generous loan to her by an anonymous benefactor.

Simone Lamsma...made a brilliant Philharmonic debut in Britten’s Violin Concerto. ...Ms. Lamsma, who first worked with her countryman Mr. van Zweden in 2007, played splendidly, with crisp clarity and brightly radiant sound, conveying both the rhapsodic fervor and intriguing pensiveness of the music… Anthony Tommasini – New York Times (November 13, 2018)

...Korngold’s Violin Concerto from Simone Lamsma is delivered with extraordinary deftness and depth... this performance was the most impressive one I’ve ever heard – on recordings or in the concert hall – an amazing artistic feat... Phillip Nones – BachTrack (December 9, 2018)
