Joanna Kamenarska studied with Josif Radionov in Sofia and with Ruggiero Ricci and Igar Ozim in Salzburg. She has been performing since her earliest childhood and continues to do so in Germany and abroad. She won various prizes, for example a third prize at the International Mozart Competition in Salzburg in 2002. Her broad-ranging solo repertoire encompasses everything from baroque to contemporary avant-garde music. As a soloist, Joanna Kamenarska has appeared with orchestras such as the Radio Symphony Orchestra Berlin, the Konzerthaus Orchestra Berlin, the Nürnberg Symphony Orchestra, the Polish Chamber Philharmonic, the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, the Hamburger Camerata, the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra as well as orchestras in Bulgaria and elsewhere. Her numerous musical partnerships have resulted in two CD recordings: the first was “Initio” with pianist Irina Georgieva, released by the Bulgarian label Gega New; in 2019 a duo album with pianist Moisès Ferández Via appeared on the label Urtext Classics in Tanglewood in the USA.
Joanna Kamenarska plays a violin built by J. B. Guadagnini in 1740 (Ex-Flesch), on loan to her from a private donor. Joanna Kamenarska has lived in Hamburg since 2007, when she began a one-year appointment as concertmaster at the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra. In 2008 she became associate concertmaster at the Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra. Since February 2018 she has been teaching in the orchestral studies programme at the Hamburg Academy of Music and Theatre.
With a lecture by Dr. Moritz Helmstaedter, whose research focuses on the brain, and "Pictures at an Exhibition", our 2nd Theme Concert attempts to draw connections between programme music and neurosciences. "Chaos and Order" is not only the central theme here, but may also serve as one possible cross-relation between the two worlds of music and science, which are often so hard to connect. A broadening of the horizons awaits the audience: intensive and complex, emotional and highly engaging!
