Biography

Hungarian violinist Kinga Ujszászi after graduating from the Franz Liszt Music Academy in Budapest moved to London to study at the Royal Academy of Music. At the Academy she got interested in historical performance and picked up the baroque violin. Since then she has played with many of the leading period performance groups of England such as the Orchestra of Age of Enlightenment, the Orchestra Revolutionere et Romantic, The Academy of Ancient Music. She was a member of the European Union Baroque Orchestra where she returned to as concertmaster for a tour with Riccardo Minasi in 2012 and again in 2013 with director Stefano Montanari. She also leads Academia de las Luces in Madrid and the chamber music group Spiritato! They released two albums with Resonus Classics, Bella Dama and the first ever recording of Daniel Purcell's Judgement of Paris.
Kinga has a classical/romantic string quartet, the HIP4tet, which got a residency in the Abbay aux Dames in Saintes(France) after having performed in the Saintes Festival, as a Spotlight on Young Artists group in 2013.
She plays in the duo Repicco with Jadran Duncumb (theorbo/lute). Their repertoire is ranging from the earliest baroque works till the late classical repertoire, but  their favourite music is from the early Italian era. They were selected to be in the York Early Music Competition Final in 2013 and they will be in the eeemerging ensemble program of Ambronay in 2015.Her music making is inspired by good coffee and late night conversations. She is a big fan of home made bread, dragons, long walks and also enjoys taking pictures of her adventures and her friends. Kinga enjoys running once a year and still hasn't given up on completing her new year's resolution for 2013, to learn how to make latte art.
