Corinna Canzian, Violin

Born in Conegliano, Treviso in November 1987, in October 2006 Corinna obtained her Violin Diploma with maximum scores and praise at the Conservatorio G. Tartini in Trieste with G.Nadai; she studied for few years with D.Schwarzberg and A.Pinzaru at the Academy of Music in Pinerolo and, after the first year of Master of Music with G.Carmignola at the Hochschule Musik in Lucerne, in April 2012 she won one of the two places of Violin Player in the prestigious International Ensemble Modern Academy in Frankfurt.
After her debut at the age of 12 in Vivaldi's Church in Venice, Corinna focused on her career as a Concert Artist in Italy and abroad, regularly performing also as a soloist, with Orchestra della Venezia Orientale, Orchestra d’Archi Italiana, Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto, Rondò Veneziano e Orchestra dell’Accademia of Pinerolo. She has also collaborated with musicians such as G.Apap, S.Azzolini, M.Brunello, R.Capuçon, A.Ceccato, C.Goldstein, A.Hewitt, M.Jurowski, M.Stockhausen.
Since her early ages Corinna participated in many national and international competitions, obtaining several first prizes. In July 2010 Corinna received the »Fondazione Cariparo« Scholarship, gaining the opportunity to attend a masterclass with P.Graffin and to perform as a soloist with Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto.
Her repertoire goes from Renaissance Music to the Contemporary Avant-gardes (collaborator artist with Framensemble); about this last music genre, she has been highly enriched by her period in Lucerne, since it is full of important opportunities as Solo Interpret: the collaboration with H. Lachenmann during the festival »Szenenwechsel«, the concerts in memory of J. Cage, the meeting with W. Rihm and the concert in KKL and, finally, the collaboration with S. Gubajdulina during the »Festival Lucerne im Sommer« as Concertmaster.
Moreover Corinna teaches violin with enthusiasm: about that, in April 2010 she obtained the Degree for the Teaching of Music Education on Middle and High School at the Università Ca’ Foscari in Venice.
