German born violinist Isabelle Faust is a highly sought-after performer with an extensive repertoire of both solo and chamber music. She has been developing her exciting musical style since beginning her studies at age 5, and discovered a particular love for chamber music, having founded her first string quartet at the tender age of 11. Ms. Faust continues to seek a dialogue and exchange of musical ideas, in performances of all types, and it is the result of these musical dialogues which create her unforgettable concerts. Isabelle Faust performs on a Stradivarius violin from 1704, known as the 'Sleeping Beauty Violin.'
'Her sound has passion, grit and electricity but also a disarming warmth and sweetness that can unveil the music’s hidden strains of lyricism ...'
