Rie Kimura – barokviool

Deel dit bericht:

Rie Kimura is een Japanse barokviolist. Ze won de Premio Bonporti Baroque Violin Competition in Italië, waar ze ook de publieksprijs ontving. Haar solo vioolspel werd geprezen vanwege “strong personality imbued with expression and rhetoric.” Haar uitstekende vaardigheden als kamermuziekmusicus maken dat ze als violiste erg in trek is. Naast Fantasticus speelt Rie regelmatig met ensembles als Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, Bach Collegium Japan, Apollo Ensemble en De Nederlandse Bachvereniging.

Haar eerste solo-opname van sonates van Tartini en Veracini verschijnt in 2014 bij Resonus Classics en kreeg een zeldzame 5-sterren recensie in De Volkskrant. Rie studeerde barokviool bij Lucy van Dael aan het Conservatorium van Amsterdam, waar ze cum laude afstudeerde. Zo won meerdere prijzen, waaronder de eerste prijs van de Yamanashi Early Music Competition (Japan) en verschillende ensembleprijzen op de oude muziek competities van Brugge en Amsterdam.
