Stephen Waarts

21 year old Dutch-American violin virtuoso Stephen Waarts is firmly establishing an international reputation as one of the most prodigiously gifted young concert artists to emerge in recent years.

A student of Mihaela Martin at the Kronberg Academy, and a recent graduate from the Curtis Institute of Music where he studied with Aaron Rosand, Stephen is a former major prize winner at the Queen Elisabeth, Menuhin, Spohr, Sarasate and Montreal International Violin Competitions – and in March of last year was awarded a prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant.

His upcoming highlights include debut solo engagements with the hr-Sinfonieorchester, Munich Philharmonic, Kansas City Symphony and the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra – as well as prestigious 2018 invitations to the Plush Festival and Prussia Cove.

He currently performs on an 1868 Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume violin – and has general management representation by Harrison Parrott, London.
