Kinga Ujszászi

Violin

Kinga moved to London to study at the Royal Academy of Music after graduating from the Franz Liszt Music Academy in Budapest. At the Academy she got interested in historical performance and picked up the baroque violin. Since then she has played with many of the leading period performance groups of England and Europe. She is a member of The English Concert and the Orchestra of Age of Enlightenment and she often appears with The Academy of Ancient Music and the Dunedin Consort. She is the leader of Spiritato and has lead numerous other ensembles, including L'Arpeggiata, Barokkanerne, The Irish Baroque Orchestra. Her first solo album, ‘Assassini, Assassinati’ with baroque duo, Repicco features music from the very turbulent 17th century Italy. The album got high praise from the most prestigious music magazines and critiques and was awarded with 5 diapasons.

Her ongoing Cabinet of Wonders project with harpsichordist Tom Foster is exposing lesser know music from the Dresden Library. So far they have published two volumes with First Hand Records.
