Already an active recording artist, Chloë Hanslip has received outstanding reviews for her two recent CDs for Naxos: the John Adams Violin Concerto with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under Leonard Slatkin and The Violin Concertos of Benjamin Godard with the Slovak State Philharmonic under Kirk Trevor.
Her two earlier CDs with the London Symphony Orchestra for Warner Classics won her, respectively, the German ECHO Classic Award for Best Newcomer (2002), and Young British Classical Performer at the Classical BRITS (2003). Her impressive recording catalogue continues to grow with a highly acclaimed recital disc of works by Bazzini and the Hubay Violin Concertos with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. Now recording with Hyperion, her first CD with them, the Vieuxtemps violin concertos with the Royal Flemish Philharmonic under Martyn Brabbins, will be released later this season.
In addition to the standard repertoire, Ms. Hanslip has a special affinity for contemporary music. She plays the concertos of John Adams, Benjamin Britten, Philip Glass, John Corigliano, and, more recently, the 2003 Concerto by Michael Nyman and Brett Dean’s The Lost Art of Letter Writing.
Ms. Hanslip is also an avid chamber music player. She is a regular participant in Open Chamber music at Prussia Cove, working with Steven Isserlis and Gerhard Schulz, and at the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in Finland, where she returned for the 40th Anniversary celebrations in 2009.
Chloë Hanslip studied for ten years with the great Russian pedagogue Zakhar Bron. She has also worked with Robert Masters, Ida Haendel, Salvatore Accardo, and Gerhard Schulz.
