Kasia Ziminska is a violinist and violist committed to exploring repertoire ranging from early to contemporary experimental. She completed her Bachelor studies with ECO leader Stephanie Gonley and Belcea Quartet violist Krzysztof Chorzelski at the Guildhall School of Music. She has received guidance from Pavel Vernikov and Svetlana Makarova in Accademmia Santa Cecilia, Bergamo, and is currently completing her Master’s degree with Maciej Rakowski at the Royal College of Music. Kasia has performed in a series of masterclasses for the Maxim Vengerov. Her recent solo highlights include Vivaldi Four Seasons with Silk Street Sinfonia and Shostakovich Viola Sonata in Milton Court. Kasia is passionate about improvisation in historical performance, and has received mentoring from experts in early music and improvisation such as Rachel Podger and David Dolan and is currently studying baroque violin with Lucy Russell. As a member of the Chagall Piano Quartet and Salomé Quartet she has been successful in competitions such as St Martin-in-the-Fields Competition, London; Johannes Brahms Competition, Gdańsk; RCM String Quartet Competition, and received awards including the Ivan Sutton Chamber Music Prize, Helen Just & Susan Connell Prize and The Sacconi Quartet Prize. Kasia’s debut in Kammer Klang new music series led to her collaboration with acclaimed contemporary ensembles such as the Harvard and Stanford resident Distractfold Ensemble, and the Plus-Minus Ensemble with which she has been invited to perform in the Warsaw Autumn Festival next year.

Both of Bach’s pieces performed tie in to the German theme of the Rautio Piano Trio’s programme, whilst Bacewicz and Enescu’s folk-inspired works correspond with the folklore explored in the final movement of the Brahms Piano Quartet.
