Throughout the year British violist Jenny Lewisohn performs with a rich variety of distinguished artists which has taken her around Europe and to South America. She regularly attends IMS and OCM Prussia Cove and was invited to join the OCM annual tour culminating at Wigmore Hall.
Jenny is a member of the award-winning Hieronymus Quartet who recently completed their first Beethoven Cycle at Woodhouse Music. Their videos of Beethoven’s Op.130 (a collaboration with videographer Carolin Röckelein) were picked up on Twitter by WQXR, the most listened-to classical music station in the United States, who wrote that the quartet would “bolster your deepening love of Beethoven.” Most recently they received a masterclass from Alfred Brendel at London’s Kings Place and their upcoming engagements include performances in Mallorca, London and Copenhagen.
Jenny is also a member of the award-winning Lipatti Piano Quartet who made their Wigmore Hall debut last April. She collaborates with the Aurora Orchestra (and will perform a memorised Shostakovich Symphony No. 9 with them at The Proms in August), the Multi-Story Orchestra and Sinfonia Cymru amongst many others.
Keen to share her enthusiasm for chamber music, she is an artistic advisor and co-founder of the Marryat Players Chamber Music Festival which takes place in Wimbledon each summer. She is also Co-Artistic Director of the Jigsaw Players Concert Series who bring world-class classical, jazz and educational projects to South West London.
Each year Jenny teaches viola, violin and coaches chamber music at La Mariette Junior, a summer course for young musicians in France.
Jenny completed her Bachelor of Music with highest honours and Masters of Music with Distinction from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2014 where she was also awarded the prestigious Concert Recital Diploma. A movement of a work for solo viola by Raymond Yiu has been dedicated to Jenny as well as a viola concerto by Eloise Gynn.
