Biography

Ukrainian violinist Diana Tishchenko is proving herself to be one of the most exciting artists to emerge in recent years. In the current season as part of her Rising Stars tour Diana will perform in several of the most celebrated concert halls in Europe, including the Philharmonie de Paris, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, and Concertgebouw Amsterdam.   As a soloist, Diana has been invited to perform with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Munich Chamber Orchestra, Orchestre National d’Ile de France, Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg, Orchestre National des Pays de Loire, Baden-Baden Philharmonic, and Shanghai Symphony Orchestra.

In November 2019 her debut album Strangers in PARadISe was released on Warner Classics to universal critical acclaim. BBC Music Magazine awarded the album five stars, while Gramophone Magazine complimented her for “a genuinely distinctive, individual voice ».

Born in the Crimea, Ukraine in 1990, Diana studied with Tamara Mukhina at the Lysenko Special Music School, Kiev, and with Professor Ulf Wallin at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler, Berlin. At 18 she became a member – and later the youngest ever concertmaster – of the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra, working with Sir Colin Davis, Franz Welser-Möst, Herbert Blomstedt, Antonio Pappano and Daniele Gatti and performing in Europe’s most renowned concert venues.  During her studies in Berlin Diana was assistant to Professor Wallin, and a later a docent.   Further musical inspiration during her years of study was provided by Boris Kuschnir, Ferenc Rados, Rita Wagner, Saschko Gawriloff, Steven Isserlis and Sir András Schiff.  

Diana Tishchenko was nominated by the Cité de la musique – Philharmonie de Paris and Casa da Música Porto
