924

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

A student of Aaron Rosand at the Curtis Institute of Music, he is a major prize winner at the Queen Elisabeth, Menuhin, Spohr, Sarasate and Montreal International Violin Competitions – and 1st prize recipient at the Young Concert Artists International Auditions.

His recent accolades include The Strad magazine reviewing: ‘From the first note … I was hooked, and within a few bars I was moved to tears’ and The Telegraph suggesting: ‘From the first bars… it was blindingly clear that this boy… was something special … a soul,’

Stephen is also an accomplished mathematician and has won several national math awards.

He currently performs on a 1868 Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume violin.
