Biography

Renowned not only as a prominent interpreter of 17th, 18th and 19th century violin music, Elizabeth Wallfisch is also a Concertmaster and Director. Elizabeth Wallfisch has been a Guest Director/Leader on the violin with many of the world's orchestras, both 'modern' and 'period instrument'. Her impressive discography offers a window onto her expansive musical world from the High Baroque Italian violinist-composers such as Vivaldi, Corelli, and the Classical and Romantic Greats from Mozart to Brahms. She has recently completed a recording of the Beethoven piano and violin sonatas for Nimbus records.

Elizabeth is Artistic Director of The Wallfisch Band, a unique international period-instrument orchestra in which highly talented younger players, either still studying or on the threshold of their careers, play alongside Elizabeth and her 'seasoned' colleagues-all players at the very top of the profession

In 2007, Elizabeth Wallfisch was Music Director of National Music Camp Australia, under the Australian Youth Orchestra, and in 2013 will do this once more. She has worked with the AYO, in 'Style Workshop', Young Symphonists, and has a special and close tie with the young players in Australia, it being her homeland!
