Diamanda Dramm

Instruments: Strings | Violin

Diamanda grew up in Amsterdam, the Netherlands playing the violin since the age of four. Growing up among the leading figures of the Dutch classical, avant-garde and improvisation scene, her own concerts reflect all of these elements. At the age of thirteen, she premiered “Raadsels” by Louis Andriessen in the Concertgebouw for the opening of the Holland Festival 2005 and has gone on to perform internationally as a soloist, chamber music player and band member. In April 2018 Diamanda won the Dutch Classical Talent Tour & Award, the first ever string soloist to do so.

She completed her Bachelor of Music at the New England Conservatory in Boston with James Buswell and Nicholas Kitchen. At graduation, she was awarded the John Cage Award for her contribution to new music.

Diamanda received her Masters of Music from the Royal Conservatory of the Hague, studying with Vera Beths. She was awarded the Nicolai Prize for the most exceptional recital.

In March 2020 NRC Handelsblad named Diamanda one of the 101 talents for the next decade.
