Geneva Lewis – violinist
New Zealand-born violinist Geneva Lewis has forged a reputation as a musician of consummate artistry whose performances speak from and to the heart and who has been lauded for the “remarkable mastery of her instrument” (CVNC) and hailed as “clearly one to watch” (Musical America).
Named a BBC New Generation Artist (2022-24), Geneva is also the recipient of a 2022 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award and a 2021 Avery Fisher Career Grant. She was also Grand Prize winner of the 2020 Concert Artists Guild Competition, winner of the Kronberg Academy’s Prince of Hesse Prize (2021), Musical America’s New Artist of the Month (June 2021), a Performance Today Young Artist in Residence and a YCAT Concordia Artist.
August 2023 saw Geneva’s very successful BBC Proms debut with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Jaime Martin, while the 2023-24 season includes further performances with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and debuts with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre National de Bordeaux Aquitaine, Kremerata Baltica, where she performs Schnittke’s Concerto Grosso No.1 alongside Gidon Kremer, as well as the Knoxville Symphony, Santa Rosa Symphony and Orquesta Filarmónica de Jalisco.
