Praised by the Chicago Tribune as "a first-rate artist of real musical command, vitality, brilliance and intensity", the young Canadian violinist KAREN GOMYO continues to captivate audiences worldwide.

Karen Gomyo's 2016-2017 season highlights include engagements with the Hong Kong Philharmonic conducted by Jaap Van Zweden, Orchestra Sinfonica de Estado de São Paulo and Marin Alsop, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France in Paris and the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne with Jakub Hruša, debuts with the Barcelona Symphony, North Netherlands Symphony, as well as returns to the Minnesota Orchestra, the Symphony Orchestras of Dallas, Utah, Vancouver, Toronto, and Québec, returns to the Tasmanian Symphony and  Perth’s WASO in Australia, and a tour with the New Zealand Symphony conducted by Edo de Waart.

Strongly committed to contemporary works, Karen Gomyo performed the North American premiere of Matthias Pintscher’s Concerto No. 2 “Mar'eh” with the composer conducting the National Symphony of Washington D.C., as well as Peteris Vasks' "Vox Amoris" with the Lapland Chamber Orchestra conducted by John Storgårds, and has collaborated in chamber music compositions with Jörg Widmann, Olli Mustonen, and Sofia Gubaidulina. In 2017-18 she will perform Sam Adams' Violin Concerto in the U.S. and Canada.

In recital and chamber music, Gomyo has performed in festivals throughout the U.S. and Europe. She recently toured with the Australian Chamber Orchestra and fellow guest artist, the mezzo-soprano Susan Graham. Her chamber music collaborators have included Heinrich Schiff, Christian Poltéra, Alisa Weilerstein, Leif Ove Andsnes, Olli Mustonen, Kathryn Stott, Christian Ihle Hadland, Antoine Tamestit, Isabelle Van Keulen, and Lawrence Power. This summer she appears at the Seattle Chamber Music Society, Stavanger Festival in Norway, Frederiksvaerk and Fanø Festivals in Denmark, and Luosto Festival in Finland.

Karen Gomyo has worked with the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, the City of Birmingham Symphony, Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Danish National Symphony, Bamberg Symphony, Stuttgart Radio Symphony, Sydney Symphony, Tokyo Symphony, among many others, with such conductors as Sir Andrew Davis, Jaap van Zweden, Leonard Slatkin, Neeme Järvi, David Robertson, David Zinman, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Louis Langrée, Thomas Dausgaard, James Gaffigan, Pinchas Zukerman, Mirga Gražinyte-Tyla, Hannu Lintu, Vasily Petrenko, Jakub Hruša, Cristian Macaleru, Thomas Søndergård, and Mark Wigglesworth.

Recently, a documentary film produced by NHK Japan about Antonio Stradivarius called “The Mysteries of the Supreme Violin”, in which Gomyo was violinist, host, and narrator, was broadcast worldwide on NHK WORLD.

Karen Gomyo is deeply interested in the Nuevo Tango music of Astor Piazzolla, and performs 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). She also performs regularly with the Finnish guitarist Ismo Eskelinen, with whom she has appeared at the Dresden and Mainz Festivals in Germany, and in recitals in Helsinki and New York. A recording with Mr. Eskelinen is planned for release in 2017.

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