“Electrifying” ... “with expressive power” ... “existential playing” ... “breathtaking” ... “from the ear directly into the soul” ... ”a full-blooded musician”! This is how critics describe Liv Migdal’s playing.
As a soloist, the award-winning musician is on the road with renowned orchestras and conductors around the world. Concert tours take Liv Migdal to numerous European countries, Asia and Israel. She has made guest appearances in major concert halls such as the Laeiszhalle Hamburg, the Taipei Concert Hall, the Beethovenhalle Bonn, the Herkulessaal Munich, the Konzerthaus Dortmund, the Konzerthaus Berlin, the Alte Oper Frankfurt, the Shanghai Concert Hall and the Great Hall of the Mozarteum in Salzburg. Her debut concerts in the Berliner Philharmonie and most recently in the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg also received an enthusiastic response.
Liv Migdal has received excellent reviews from critics and international awards for all her CD recordings to date: her debut CD with sonatas by Beethoven, Debussy and Strauss, followed by a first recording of the late romantic works for violin and piano by the great Polish virtuosos Henryk and Józef Wieniawski with Marian Migdal as piano partner, as well as the 8 Seasons with the Deutsches Kammerorchester Berlin, which was nominated for the International Classical Music Award.
Liv Migdal began her artistic studies at the age of eleven with Christiane Hutcap at the Musikhochschule Rostock, where she graduated with distinction. She continued her studies at the Salzburger Mozarteum in Igor Ozim’s master class and completed her master program with honors. In addition to Mauricio Fuks, Reinhard Goebel is a musical companion.
Liv Migdal has won numerous international music prizes and was honored in 2016 in Austria with the Paul Roczek Music Award for outstanding violin playing. In 2017 she was a scholarship holder of the ECCE Program of the Ministry of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia with the project “Giving a Voice to Ostracized
Composers,” which she initiated.
Highlights of the 2018/19 season include the world premiere of a work dedicated to her for violin and orchestra, an Artist-in-Residence season with the Erzgebirgische Philharmonie, appearances with the Istanbul State Symphony Orchestra and concert tours in Europe, Australia and Asia, where she had already won popular acclaim in 2017 during her major tour of China with the Beethoven Violin Concerto.
