United Kingdom


Tatjana Roos was born in London and began playing the violin when she was three. In 2008, she gained entry to the Yehudi Menuhin School, studying with Natasha Boyarsky and, aged 13, won first prize at the Andrea Postacchini International Competition. Roos was accepted as a pupil to Boris Kuschnir, at Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst, Graz, and soon added further violin studies with Boris Kucharsky at Junior Guildhall, London. Her extensive concerto repertoire is complemented with frequent travel to International Music Festivals, including Verbier Festival Academy, IMS Prussia Cove and Ravinia Steans Music Institute.  She has enjoyed chamber music and classes with numerous Masters - most recently with Ana Chumachenco, Pamela Frank and Midori. In 2015, Roos won a President's Distinction Award to study at New England Conservatory, with Miriam Fried.   She is a multiple prizewinner from international competitions, including Tunbridge Wells, Henri Marteau and winner of the Manfred Grommek Prize at Kronberg Academy. Recent engagements have included concerto performances with The City Chamber Ensemble and the Odessa National Opera Theatre Orchestra. Thanks to the generous support of a benefactor and by kind arrangement with Florian Leonhard Fine Violins, Tatjana plays a G.B. Guadagnini violin made in Turin, c.1785.
