Andrea Gajic

At the age of 12 Andrea Gajic performed Bruch's Scottish Fantasy at St James's Palace in London for Yehudi Menuhin's 60th birthday celebration. Two years later, she was invited by Sylvia Rosenberg to study with her at the Peabody Institute, Baltimore, where she won first prize in the American String Teachers Association Violin Competition.

Between 1990 and 1995 she studied with Khalida Akhtiamova in Moscow at the Russian Gnesins Academy of Music, gaining her Masters Degree and Diploma in Solo Performance. She subsequently pursued postgraduate study with Felix Andrievsky at the Royal College of Music in London.

Andrea has performed as soloist in the UK, the United States of America, Russia, Lithuania, Finland, Germany and France and regularly gives recitals and masterclasses in Serbia. She has recorded for BBC, STV, Bavarian Radio, Lithuanian Radio, Baltimore Radio and Serbian Radio and Television. Recent concerto appearances have included Brahms, Bruch, Prokofiev and Sibelius and she performed in a concert celebrating the birthdays of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies and James MacMillan.

Andrea plays on a violin made by Nicolaus Gagliano in 1766.
