Eva Bindere

The award-winning Latvian violinist Eva Bindere comes from a well-known family of musicians.

During her musical studies in Riga, she was awarded a scholarship to study in Dallas with Eduard Schmieder and later on in City of Basel Music Academy in Switzerland where she studied with Raphael Oleg, as well as with Hatto Beyerle and Valther Levin in their renowned chamber music course. But undoubtedly the greatest mentor and artistic influence in the young musician’s life has been the great violinist Gidon Kremer.

In 1997, when Gidon Kremer founded Kremerata Baltica chamber orchestra, Ms Bindere became its first concertmaster and led the orchestra for fifteen years. With Kremerata, she traveled around the world, regularly performing as a soloist and duo partner with Gidon Kremer. Disc “After Mozart” where Ms Bindere is also a soloist received a Grammy award. She also performed in string quartet “Euphonia” together with her Kremerata colleagues.

Ms Bindere has been the guest leader of Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Tallinn Chamber Orchestra, Latvian National Symphony Orchestra, Sudwestdeutsche Philharmonie Konstanz, Sinfonietta Basel and East West Chamber Orchestra. She has also led Kammerorchester Basel, Amsterdam Sinfonietta, Camerata Bern and Moscow Soloists in collaboration projects.

Ms Bindere has special affinity for chamber music making and has performed in partnership with Yo Yo Ma, Khatia Buniatishvili, Yuri Bashmet, Pierre Amoyal, Renaud Capucon, Hagen Quartet, Boris Garlitsky, Antoine Tamestit, Maxim Rysanov, Gerard Causse, Wolfram Christ, Alois Posch, Gautier Capucon, Mario Brunello, Boris Pergamenshikov, Katia Skanavi, Leif Ove Andsnes, Martin Stadtfeld, Alexander Melnikov and Martin Helmchen.

A very enjoyable music making with fellow Latvian musicians, the first cello of the London Philharmonic Orchestra Kristina Blaumane and the brilliant pianist Reinis Zarins, has grown into an established ensemble, Trio Palladio, their Wigmore Hall debut was described as “ excellent” by The Times and their first cd featuring works for piano trio by the world famous Latvian composer Peteris Vasks has been released on Ondine in 2020 and chosen by The Grammophone magazine as one of their Editor’s Choices.

Since 2008, Ms Bindere is a full time professor and a beloved lecturer in Jāzeps Vītols Latvian Academy of Music. She also juries international competitions and gives regular masterclasses in Collegium Musicum Schloss Pommersfelden, Livorno Festival , Sinfonicamente in Verona and Järvi String Academy.

In 2017, a collaboration with Accademia Perosi in Biella, Italy, began, and Ms Bindere started giving a chamber orchestra/ensemble playing course as an invited professor there, from this year starting a violin class as well. In March 2017 Ms Bindere was honoured with the Latvian Grand Music Award, the highest state recognition in the field of music.
