Monica Germino (USA/NL) is on the cutting edge of new music. Hailed by The Sunday Times (UK) as a ‘striking presence’ whose ‘virtuosity was exhilarating’, she has collaborated with such composers as Louis Andriessen, John Cage, Heiner Goebbels, Michael Gordon, György Ligeti and Julia Wolfe. Together with sound engineer Frank van der Weij, she presents revolutionary recitals. Her performances often feature singing and playing, a skill she developed in recent years. Monica plays a Joannes Baptista Ceruti violin, on permanent loan from the Elise Mathilde Foundation, and a custom-made ‘Violectra’. She is co-founder of the international four-member ensemble ELECTRA.
