This masterclass will occur in Perth.

Noa Wildschut

Dutch violinist Noa Wildschut is only 22 years old, but has already gained her place in the international classical music scene. At the age of six she appeared live on Dutch national television at Amsterdam’s Prinsengracht youth concert. Aged seven, she made her debut in the Main Hall of the Amsterdam Concertgebouw at the ‘Night of the Promising’ concert. In September 2016 she became an exclusive recording artist for Warner Classics.

Noa has built a considerable reputation and is regularly invited for festivals, recitals and solo performances with orchestras, both in her home country and abroad. She has collaborated with such artists as Janine Jansen, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Menahem Pressler and Igor Levit, and performed as a duo with pianists Yoram Ish-Hurwitz and, since 2018, Elisabeth Brauss.

She has worked with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, Residentie Orkest, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra, Camerata Salzburg, Kremerata Baltica, Konzerthausorchester Berlin, Gürzenich Orchester Köln, Lucerne Symphony Orchestra, Sinfonieorchester Basel, Orquestra Sinfônica de João Pessoa in Brazil and Orquesta Sinfónica de Guayaquil in Ecuador.

Noa won numerous awards at a young age, including First Prize at the International Violin Competition Louis Spohr in Weimar (at the age of nine), First Prize at the Iordens Violin Competition in The Hague (at the age of 10), the Concertgebouw Young Talent Award (aged 11) and the Anton Kersjes Violin Prize (aged 16). She received the WEMAG Soloist Award at the 2018 Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival, and was selected as an ECHO Rising Star for the 2019/20 season by the European Concert Hall Organisation.

From 2014 to 2019 Noa was a member of Mutter Virtuosi, a string ensemble led by Anne-Sophie Mutter, and from 2015 to 2019 Noa held an official scholarship from the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation – their youngest ever member.

The Dutch public service broadcaster NTR produced the documentary Noa11, which was broadcast in November 2012. In 2017 the documentary A Family Quartet, about Noa and her family, was screened in many Dutch theaters and was broadcast on TV.

Noa’s bow is a beautiful Dominique Peccatte, mid-19th-century, kindly on loan from the Dutch Musical Instruments Foundation from the Tettelaar collection. Noa plays a 1750 violin by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini, previously performed on by violinist Joshua Bell, generously loaned by a patron through the Tarisio Trust.
