Regarded as one of the most fascinating and versatile violinists of the young generation, Lidia Baich wins audiences by exciting performances and intense interpretation.

The Austrian who was born in St. Petersburg received her first violin lesson from her grand-father when she was just 4 years old. She then went on to study with Prof. Boris Kuschnir in Vienna. Aged eight she won her first international competition, and this was followed by many more first prizes. At the age of 16, her outstanding musical performance earned her the first place in the 1998 Grand Prix d‘Eurovision and the title „European Musician of the year”.

Lidia Baich plays recitals as well as as a soloist with orchestra, performing in the world’s leading concert halls. Concert-tours have taken her to Japan, China, Russia, USA, Korea, South Africa, Argentina, Brazil and Great Britain, where she played with the world’s top orchestras under conductors such as Lorin Maazel, Vladimir Fedoseyev, Yuri Temirkanov, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Kristjan Järvi, Bertrand de Billy and Yakov Kreizberg, and orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Tokyo Philharmonic, NHK Orchestra, Malaysia Philharmonic, Berlin Symphony Orchestra, Bavarian Radio Orchestra, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre Nationale de France, Orchestra Arturo Toscanini or Camerata Salzburg.

As a passionate chamber musician Lidia plays with partners like Nobuko Imai, Aleksey Igudesman, Hyung-Ki Joo, Boris Giltburg, Matthias Fletzberger, members of the Vienna Philharmonic or the Vienna Brahms Trio. Lidia has performed at festivals including the Vienna Festival, Salzburg Festival, Dubrovnik Festival, Moritzburg Festival and Mozart Festival in Johannesburg. She also took part in the ten-year anniversary of „Pavarotti and Friends” in Modena.

In 2008 she released her first CD (Violin-Concertos by Mendelssohn and Prokofiev) with Bertrand de Billy and the RSO-Orchestra Vienna on the Deutsche Grammophon/Universal label. In 2009 she was the official ambassador of the Haydn year. In 2011 Lidia released her second CD/DVD “Violin in Motion” on the Deutsche Grammophon label together with pianist Matthias Fletzberger, featuring their own arrangements of symphonic ballet-music.

Since 2014 she is also teaching at the Music and Arts University Vienna. Another concern of Lidia is the promotion of young talents; she presents young musicians, holds master classes and plays special concerts for children. Lidia Baich also serves as a jury member at prestigious violin competitions such as the Eurovision- or the Menuhin-Competition.

In June 2014 Lidia was invited by the State Ballet Berlin to join the new production “Don Juan”, where she was responsible for the the musical arrangement and performed as a soloist on stage. Another concern of Lidia is the promotion of young talents; she presents young musicians, holds master classes and plays special concerts for children. 

Recent activities include extensive tours through Europe as well as the Middle- and Far-East and the recording of her third CD with Violin-Sonatas by Richard Strauss and Joseph Marx.

Lidia plays a violin made by Joseph Guarnerius del Gesú „ex Guilet” in 1732, made available to her by courtesy of the Austrian National Bank.
