Dutch violinist Yvonne Smeulers is one of her country’s most well-known soloists. She gave her debut at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw at the age of ten, and since then she has been appearing at many concert halls throughout Europe. The press has praised her brilliant, expressive, and passionate playing. Since 2013, Yvonne Smeulers has been artistic director of the “Klassik in Kronberg” festival. Up to now she has recorded four CDs featuring works by Grieg, Schumann, Ravel, Prokofiev, and Beethoven, and her last double CD, 135 years of Czech composers, was given the highest ratings by the classical music press. Yvonne Smeulers plays a violin built by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini in 1785 that has kindly been made available to her by private donation.
