Prof. Latica Honda-Rosenberg

Prof. Latica Honda-Rosenberg is among the foremost representatives of the generation of young violinists that is now established in concert life. Winning the silver medal at the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 1998 paved the way for an international career for her. The music magazine ˜The Strad” wrote at the time: “Her assurance and strength of will immediately brought Heifetz to mind. Her musical idiom and her playing are eloquent, expressive, sensitive and varied, or in short: wonderful, uplifting.”
Born the daughter of a croatian cellist and japanese singer, Latica Honda-Rosenberg grew up in Germany and commenced playing the violin at the age of four. She became a young pupil of Tibor Varga at the Detmold School of Music when she was nine. She continued her training with Zakhar Bron in Madrid at the " Escuela Superior de Mùsica Reina Sofia" and at the Musikhochschule Lübeck.
Performing in the series “Debut on Deutschland-Radio” and accompanied by the Deutsches Sinfonie-Orchester Berlin, she made her debut as a soloist at the Philharmonie Berlin in 1989. She has since appeared as a soloist with the Orchestra of the Beethovenhalle Bonn, NDR Radio Philharmonic Orchestra Hanover, MDR Symphony Orchestra Leipzig, Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, Lausanne Chamber Orchestra, Lucerne Symphony Orchestra, Zurich Chamber Orchestra, National Orchestra de Belgique, Russian State Orchestra, Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, Prague Chamber Orchestra and Czech Philharmonic Orchestra.
In the chamber music field, cellists Steven Isserlis, Jens Peter Maintz, violist Hartmut Rohde, Jean-Guihen Queyras, as well as pianists Matthias Kirschnereit, Eldar Nebolsin and Kirill Gerstein, are among her favourite partners.
Since 2000 Latica Honda-Rosenberg has been recording exclusively for the Oehms Classics label. Three recordings with works by Bloch, Prokofief (chamber music), Shostakovitsch and Tchaikovsky (solo concertos) are already available. The recordings of chamber music by Ernest Bloch were chosen by “The Strad” as its CD of the Month.

Apart from her concert career, Latica Honda-Rosenberg held a professorship at the Freiburg Music Academy from 2003 to 2009. In April 2009, she was appointed professor at the Berlin University of Arts. On top of this, she gives masterclasses in Germany, Italy, France, Croatia and Portugal.
