Maria Tarasewicz

Maria Tarasewicz has already gained an enviable international reputation as a chamber musician, duo partner and a pedagogue. The depth and quality of Maria’s credentials can be judged through the collaborations she has had with many great international artists, including Ivry Gitlis, Maxim Vengerov, Gavriel Lipkind, Dora Schwarzberg, Leonid Kerbel, Truls Mørk, Vladimir Perlin, Leonid Gorokhov, Gabriele Ragghianti, Itamar Golan, Paul Gulda, Paul Badura-Skoda and Hogon Austbo.

She is also committed to working with and developing younger artists, and her invitations not only as a performer but also as a teacher and accompanist have taken her to many international musical festivals including Summeracademy Voksenåsen in Norway, Jersey International Masterclass and Festival, Musica Mundi in Belgium, V Music Home Festival in Guangzhou in China, Lucca Festival in Italy, the Stavanger Youth Chamber Festival in Norway and the Three Choirs Festival in England. Maria has performed in all of London major concert venues including Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall, Southbank, Royal Albert Hall and many others. She also appears regularly on BBC Radio 3.


One of Maria’s current projects is the initiative of cofounding The Thinking Musician©, the platform organising summer music courses combining music as art, philosophy, intellectual provocations and speaking of the artist’s role in world.

Maria began her studies first in Ukraine and then Poland. In 2008 she moved to the Royal Conservatory of Brussels under Boyan Vodenitcharov and Eugene Moguilevsky, and then to the Royal Academy of Music in London with Michael Dussek.
