Expressive Swiss-Iranian Baroque violinist Leila Schayegh performs on an instrument made in Cremona in 1675 by legendary luthier and founder of Casa Guarneri, Andrea Guarneri.

In a simple twist of fate, the exceptionally promising then 7-year-old violin student saw the course of her musical life forever changed when she was offered the chance to become the custodian of an extremely rare instrument. Four centuries older than Leila herself, Santa Teresia has undergone several detailed restorations in Paris and has now been returned to its original Baroque configuration.

Leila’s performances are pure poetry and ring with the freedom of a master musician unrestrained by technical limitations. This dynamic musician’s arrival on Australian shores for the first time will be an unmissable season highlight for every music lover.
