Mihaela Martin is a very versatile musician who has played the violin since she was five years old. Equally at home as a soloist and as part of a chamber ensemble, Martin has collaborated with musical greats such as Kurt Masur, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Sir Yehudi Menuhin, Martha Argerich, Radu Lupu, Leon Fleisher, and Menahem Pressler. Born in Bucharest, Romania, Martin began studying the violin under the guidance of her father, himself a violinist. Her talent soon became clear and she began to win national competitions. She went on to gain recognition outside of Romania, being awarded top prizes at major international competitions, such as the International Tchaikovsky Competition, the Montreal International Music Competition, the Queen Elisabeth Competition and the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis. Martin was both humanly and musically influenced by two outstanding musicians, who were her teachers at different stages of her musical development: Silvia Marcovici and the great pedagogue, Stefan Gheorghiu, with whom she studied for 10 years. She left Romania in 1986 and has since resided in Germany. She is a regular guest at many chamber music festivals, and pursues her intense love for chamber music as member of the Michelangelo String Quartet, which she helped found in 2003, and with whom she continues to tour extensively. Another of Martin’s great passions is sharing her musical knowledge and curiosity with the young generation of musicians, and following their development closely. She holds professorships at the Hochschule für Musik in Köln, Kronberg Academy, and at the Barenboim-Said Akademie.
