Recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2008, violinist Karen Gomyo has established herself in recent years as a much in demand soloist internationally, performing with orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic, LA Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, and Cleveland Orchestra. Her last appearance with the RPO was in 2011. Outside of the U.S., she has appeared with the Danish National Symphony, Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Tokyo Symphony, and Sydney Symphony..

2014-2015 highlights included returns to the Cleveland Orchestra, the Toronto Symphony, the Detroit Symphony, the Oregon Symphony, the Vancouver Symphony, and a return to Australia, making her debuts with the Tasmanian Symphony and the Melbourne Symphony. She performed with the Taipei Symphony, and in Europe she makes her debut with the Staatsoper Hannover, Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart, Aalborg Symfoniorkester (in a première of Anders Koppel’s new concerto), and Argovia Philharmonic (Switzerland tour).

In recital and chamber music, Gomyo has performed in festivals throughout the U.S. and Europe. During the summer of 2014 she joins the Risør Festival (Norway), Büsingen Festival (Germany) and Musiktage Mondsee (Austria), where she will perform with Lars Anders Tomter, Leif Ove Andsnes, Christian Ihle Hadland, Sharon Kam, Christian Poltéra, and Lawrence Power.

Gomyo is deeply interested in the Nuevo Tango of Astor Piazzolla, and has an ongoing special project with Piazzolla’s longtime pianist and tango legend Pablo Ziegler and his partners Hector del Curto (bandoneon), Claudio Ragazzi (electric guitar), and Pedro Giraudo (double bass).

Karen Gomyo plays the “Aurora, ex-Foulis” Stradivarius violin of 1703 that was bought for her exclusive use by a private sponsor.
