James Ehnes

James Ehnes has established himself as one of the foremost musicians of his generation. He began violin studies at the age of four, became a protégé of the noted Canadian violinist Francis Chaplin aged nine, made his orchestral début aged thirteen, with the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, and graduated from The Juilliard School in 1997, having won the Peter Mennin Prize for Outstanding Achievement and Leadership in Music. Gifted with a rare combination of stunning virtuosity, serene lyricism, and unfaltering musicality, he is a favourite guest at the world’s most celebrated concert halls. Recent orchestral highlights include performances with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, San Francisco Symphony, New York Philharmonic, hr-Sinfonieorchester Frankfurt, London Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, and Münchner Philharmoniker.

In 2017 he received the Royal Philharmonic Society Award in the Instrumentalist category, and in 2021 was named Artist of the Year by the magazine Gramophone.
