Jeanne Christée

The german-born artist started her music lessons at the age of four, and won her first competition already at the age of eight. After her studies with Nathan Milstein, Tibor Varga, Herman Krebbers and Franco Gulli, Jeanne Christée performed in Europe ́s great concert halls, including those of London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Zurich, Budapest, Prague as well as in the USA and Mexico. She was the soloist of renowned orchestras such as Sinfonia Varsovia, Ensemble of the Berlin Philharmonic, Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra Moscow, Russian National Orchestra, St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra, Berlin Symphony Orchestra, Cappella Istropolitana and "Neues Collegium Bachensis" of the "Leipziger Gewandhausorchester".

The violinist has a keen interest in unknown or forgotten compositions and makes it available to the wider public. Her curiosity for contemporary music lead to several first performances of compositions written for her.

Jeanne Christée's large repertoire - also in chamber music - brought her to various festivals (among them several times to the "Schleswig-Holstein Music-Festival"). The artist gave master classes in Italy and Mexico and is currently Visiting Professor at the St. Gellert Academy in Hungary.

Jeanne Christée has been engaged by european radio and television networks and has recorded various CD's. She plays on a Stradivari from 1721.
