One could only wonder if there's a finer violinist alive than James Ehnes. Here were luminous tone and impeccable technique.
—Dallas Morning News
Hailed as the Jascha Heifetz of our day (Globe and Mail), violinist James Ehnes is widely considered one of the most dynamic and exciting performers in classical music.
He is in great demand worldwide, performing regularly in the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Germany, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, The Netherlands, Denmark, and Norway.
He has performed with such UK orchestras as the BBC Philharmonic, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and the London, Bournemouth, and Birmingham symphonies. European orchestras include the Wiener Symphoniker, the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, the Czech Philharmonic, Helsinki Philharmonic, Orchestre National de Lyon, and the Finnish Radio Orchestra. In Asia he has performed with the NHK Symphony, Hong Kong Philharmonic and the Malaysian Philharmonic.
In recital, Mr. Ehnes has appeared at London’s Wigmore Hall, in the Netherlands, in Colombia, and throughout the United States. His recital partners include such artists as Leif Ove Andsnes, Louis Lortie and Yo-Yo Ma.
His recordings have been showered with international awards, including a GRAMMY, a GRAMOPHONE, and six JUNO Awards. About his 2009 recording of Paganini’s 24 Caprices, The Times wrote “Ehnes’s artistry suggests that in Paganini's age he would have enjoyed similar stature to the great man.” His most recent CD of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto has earned raves worldwide: “dazzling” (Classic FM), “a pure delight” (BBC Music Magazine), and “It just doesn’t get any better than this” (MusicWeb International).
Ehnes plays the "Ex Marsick" Stradivarius of 1715 and gratefully acknowledges its extended loan from the Fulton Collection.
