Biography:

Icelandic violinist Elfa Rún Kristinsdóttir first came to international prominence in 2006, when she took the Grand Prize as well as two special prizes at the International Bach Competition in Leipzig. Her performances cover a wide spectrum, from playing baroque violin as a regular soloist and guest concertmaster with Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, to playing in choreographed concerts, with collaborators including Nico and the Navigators, Sasha Waltz, and working with composers such as Sarah Nemtsov and Mark André. Her recording of Telemann's Fantasies for solo violin took the Album of the Year Prize at the Icelandic Music Awards in 2015.
