Chloe Hanslip - Click for larger photoChloŽ Hanslip was born in 1987 in Guildford, Surrey and has been playing the violin since she was two. When she was five she performed to the legendary violinist and mentor Lord Yehudi Menuhin and subsequently, at his invitation, studied with Natasha Boyarskaya at the Menuhin School.

In 1995 she began studying in Germany with Professor Zakhar Bron, the teacher of Maxim Vengerov and Vadim Repin, two of today's foremost young violinists. In addition to her lessons with Professor Bron, ChloŽ has taken part in masterclasses and received guidance from the great violinists Shlomo Mintz, Ida Haendel, Salvatore Accardo, Ruggiero Ricci and Maxim Vengerov.

At the age of four ChloŽ performed solo at the Purcell Room and by ten had played in major concert halls throughout Europe and North America including Carnegie Hall in New York and the Royal Albert Hall in London. 

In 1997 ChloŽ was featured in a television documentary in Germany with Igor Oistrakh and Prof. Bron. She was also featured in the BBC documentary Can You Make A Genius? screened in 2001 on BBC1 and played the child prodigy violinist alongside Ralph Fiennes and Liv Tyler in the film Onegin

ChloŽ has an exclusive recording contract with Warner Classics UK and at 13 was the youngest ever artist to be signed to the label. Her debut album, recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra under Paul Mann, was released in September 2001 to great critical acclaim. Her second CD, a recording of Bruch Concerti 1 & 3 with the LSO under Martyn Brabbins, will be released in Autumn 2002.

ChloŽ has received numerous awards for her playing including first prize and four special prizes in the 2nd International Violin Competition in Novosibirsk (Siberia) resulting in concerts in Russia, France and Japan. In 2000 she was awarded a Scholarship by the Sibelius Foundation, one of Norwayís highest honours, presented by the Finnish Ambassador. Also in 2000 she was nominated by Justus Frantz for the Prix Davidoff. In 2002 ChloŽ was awarded the Echo Klassik Award for Best Young Artist for her debut album ďChloŽĒ.

In July 2001 ChloŽ gave a private recital at Frogmore House, Windsor, for His Royal Highness, the Duke of Edinburgh and performed at St. Jamesí Palace in December 2001 before the Princess Royal. ChloŽ was invited to perform again for the Duke of Edinburgh at the Royal Naval College, Greenwich in May 2002.

In October 2001 ChloŽ performed at the Royal Albert Hall with the Philharmonia Orchestra and at New Year she gave two performances of the Mendelssohn Concerto as soloist with the London Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican. She recently performed the Bruch Concerto No.1 with both the London Mozart Players and the City of London Sinfonia to great acclaim and future plans include a performance with the St Gallen Sinfonieorchester and concerto performances with The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the SÝnderjyllands Symfoniorkester and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. ChloŽ will make her concerto debut in Japan, with the Tokyo Philharmonic, in 2003.
