The ‘delightful’ (The Strad) Hungarian violinist, Dominika Fehér was born into a musical family, and as such has learnt the piano, recorder, french horn, viola, folk and classical singing alongside the violin. Upon completing her Masters degree with highest honours at the Liszt Academy in Budapest, Dominika was awarded the Weingarten Scholarship to study at Birmingham Conservatoire, where she later became a Junior Fellow. While at the Conservatoire, Dominika also developed a passion for early music, and has become a sought-after baroque violinist, leading emerging groups and working with distinguished ensembles. She is a member of the Orchestra of the Swan, and The Hanover Band, and regularly performs with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Musica Poetica, and The Bach Players.
Dominika has appeared at the BBC Proms, including a performance as co-leader of the Academy of Ancient Music, and has been broadcast live as soloist in Dittersdorf’s Double Violin Concerto on BBC Radio 3. Her other solo performances include works by Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart, Piazzolla, Vaughan Williams, Schnittke and Malcolm Arnold, and recordings for Signum Classics, Resonus Classics, and Convivium Records. She has also recorded with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the Orchestra of the Swan, the Early Opera Company, the Wallfisch Band, and the Pavao Quartet. She has toured the United Kingdom, Europe, the United States, and China, where - most recently - she performed the salon version of Richard Strauss’ arrangement of Der Rosenkavalier on gut strings.
Alongside her busy performing career, Dominika also enjoys her educational work including leading the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in their TOTS concerts, coaching young players with The Hanover Band, providing dementia patience with live music as part of Orchestra of the Swan, and playing operas for babies with Spitalfields Music.
