Julia Wallin, Finnish born pianist, recently had the great honour to perform for world renowned Mastro Valery Gergiev, with violinist Clara-Jumi Kang.
Wallin has performed across Europe, Scandinavia, UK and the US and has won prizes in several competitions, such as the Wilfrid Parry Prize, and the Poleeni Lied Piano Competition. During this time she has collaborated as a concerto soloist with Gramophone awarded Sinfonia Lahti and as a chamber musician for Judith Weir, one of the most renowned British composers. Wallin has also taught piano at King’s College, University of London, where her students have obtained places to leading conservatories, and she performs regularly at Cambridge University.
Whilst at the Royal Academy of Music, Wallin was taught by one of the most distinguished exponents of Moscow school of piano playing, Tatyana Sarkissova, as well as Andrew West, one of the most successful chamber musicians in Europe. She has been continuing her studies with professors Christopher Elton (Royal Academy of Music) and Matti Raekallio (Juilliard).
Wallin has just recorded her debut album with multi-Grammy winner producer, Andreas Neubronner, and the album will be released later in 2017.
Julia Wallin would like to acknowledge Finland’s Cultural Foundation in generously awarding a scholarship for her studies at the Royal Academy of Music.
