Despite her young age, not only has Eszter Karasszon given concerts in numerous European countries – including The Netherlands, Austria, Germany, Italy and Switzerland – but has also performed in China, Israel and the United States. At eight years old she won a prize, as the youngest competitor, at her first national cello competition, and since then she’s been among the prize-winners at many Hungarian and international competitions. In 2016 she graduated with honours from the Liszt Academy of Music. Alongside her solo career, Eszter Karasszon has also had a number of chamber music successes, and in 2013 her ensemble took the Ernő Dohányi Chamber Music Competition by storm. She doesn’t see chamber and solo playing as two distinctly separate areas of her life, however, as for her “all music is chamber music”. She’s drawn to any situation in which she can demystify classical music, making it more accessible to people. Her credo is that Good music shouldn’t be confined to the concert hall, it deserves to be everywhere.
