BIOGRAPHY

 

Formerly a member of the high profile BBC New Generation Artist Scheme, the violinist Jennifer Pike is one of the most gifted of the younger generation of British artists, and regularly featured with orchestras and chamber music series of the BBC. Her close relationship with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Sir Andrew Davis dates back to 2002 when she was named BBC Young Musician of the Year, her performance of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor making her the youngest ever winner of the competition. At the age of fifteen she made her debut at the BBC Proms. In recent seasons she has appeared with orchestras such as the Hallé, Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra, and Orchestre philharmonique de Strasbourg. In the autumn of 2010 she made her Japanese debut, giving a recital in Tokyo and appearing as a soloist with the Nagoya Philharmonic Orchestra. During the 2010 / 11 season she performs Mendelssohn’s Concerto with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and BBC National Orchestra of Wales, and Brahms’s Violin Concerto with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Philharmonia Orchestra; she also appears with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, and gives recitals at The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester and Kings Place, London. Jennifer Pike, an exclusive Chandos artist, plays a violin made by Matteo Goffriller in 1708, currently at her disposal courtesy of the Jennifer Pike Violin Trust, which is being established by Nigel Brown to raise the funds needed to secure the instrument. www.jenniferpike.com
