Amsterdam-based, American/Dutch violinist Monica Germino 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 multimedia programs worldwide. Her performances often feature singing and playing. Monica plays a Joannes Baptista Ceruti violin, on permanent loan from the Elise Mathilde Foundation, and a custom-made Violectra. She is a co-founder of the international four-member ensemble ELECTRA.
