Recognized as one of the most celebrated violinists of her generation, Elissa Koljonen initially received international acclaim when she became the first recipient of the prestigious Henryk Szeryng Foundation Award and Silver Medalist of the Carl Flesch International Violin Competition. Her engagements have taken her to some of the world’s most important venues, among them the Vienna Musikverein, Salzburg Mozarteum, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, London’s Barbican Centre, Seoul Arts Center, Boston’s Symphony Hall, and the Academy of Music in Philadelphia.


Dan Tucker, of the Chicago Tribune, has written, “She displayed boundless technique and musicianship.” As a recitalist, Ms. Koljonen has performed in London, Amsterdam, Salzburg, Seoul, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York.
