Vilde Frang is the recipient of the 2012 Credit Suisse Young Artists Award and made her debut with the Vienna Philharmonic under Bernard Haitink at the Lucerne Summer Music Festival in September 2012. Her concerto recording debut as EMI Classics’ Young Artist of the Year 2010 was greeted with acclaim by critics throughout the world and received the Edison Klassiek Award, and a Classic BRIT Award for Best Newcomer.
Noted particularly for her superb musical expression, as well as her well-developed virtuosity and musicality, Vilde Frang has established herself as one of the leading young violinists of her generation since she was engaged by Mariss Jansons at the age of twelve to debut with Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra.
