Lisa Batiashvili by Sammy Hart

Violinist Lisa Batiashvili, Musical America’s 2015 Instrumentalist of the Year, is this season’s artist-in-residence with Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. The Germany-based Georgian violinist has developed longstanding relationships with some of the world’s leading orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic (with whom she was the 2014–15 Mary and James G. Wallach Artist-in-Residence), Berlin Philharmonic, Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchestra, and Chamber Orchestra of Europe.

Ms. Batiashvili’s 2016–17 season highlights include performances with the Dresden Staatskapelle (with Christian Thielemann and cellist Gautier Capuçon), Los Angeles Philharmonic (Gustavo Dudamel), London Symphony Orchestra (Michael Tilson Thomas), and Chamber Orchestra of Paris (oboist François Leleux). She also performs the World Premiere of Anders Hillborg’s Violin Concerto No. 2 with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra (Sakari Oramo), and later performs it with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra (Alan Gilbert).

As part of her Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra residency, she plays Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto (Antonio Pappano), Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2 (Daniele Gatti), and Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1 (Vladimir Jurowski). She also spends two weeks as a Bamberg Symphony portrait artist, performing Dvořák’s Violin Concerto (Ingo Metzmacher) as well as J.S. Bach’s and Thierry Escaich’s Concertos for Violin and Oboe with Mr. Leleux (Jakub Hrůša). Chamber music projects include the opening celebration of the Boulez Saal in Berlin and a tribute concert to Alfred Brendel.

Ms. Batiashvili records exclusively for Deutsche Grammophon; her last album was released in November 2016, featuring Tchaikovsky’s and Sibelius’s Violin Concertos with the Berlin Staatskapelle, led by Daniel Barenboim. Earlier recordings include Brahms’s Violin Concerto with the Dresden Staatskapelle and Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1 with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, as well as an album of works by J.S. and C.P.E. Bach featuring, among others, François Leleux and Emmanuel Pahud.

Lisa Batiashvili plays a Joseph Guarneri “del Gesu” from 1739.
