13-year-old German violinist Clara Shen is quickly building an international reputation as an emerging young concert artist of outstanding potential.

A student of Paul Roczek at the Mozarteum University Salzburg and Sonja Korkeala at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich, Clara is a former major prize winner at the Kloster Schöntal International Violin Competition and Zhuhai International Mozart Violin Competition for Young Musicians – and was last month awarded 4th prize in the Junior Division of the 2018 Menuhin Competition in Geneva.

Clara’s recent solo engagements include performances with the Bavarian Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, Bad Reichenhall Philharmonic Orchestra, Salzburg Chamber Soloists and L’Orchester de Chambre de Genève.

She currently performs on a 1740 Antonio Testore violin – on generous loan from the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben.
