Biography

Ellinor D’Melon was born to Cuban parents in Jamaica and started to learn the violin at the age of two. Today, she is only twenty, but ‘in spite of her age, is one of those rare players who gives the impression that her command – both technical and musical – is total’ (Michael Dervan, The Irish Times). Prize winner of major competitions including the Henryk Wieniawski (1st Prize), ‘Debut Berlin’ (1st Prize)

and Novosibirsk (1st Prize and special awards), Ellinor is forging a career as a violinist of the highest standing.

Ellinor is increasingly performing worldwide with leading orchestras, such as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, St.Petersburg Philharmonic, Gävle Symphony Orchestra , Moscow Virtuosi, Orquestra de Cadaqués, Real Filharmonía de Galicia, Orquesta Sinfoníca de Navarra and the Sofia Philharmonic, and she has performed in various prestigious halls, notably the Berliner Philharmonie, Mariinsky Theatre Concert Hall, Madrid National Auditorium, Het Concertgebouw, Cologne Philharmonie, Tonhalle Zurich, Sala Verdi Milano, Gdansk Baltic Hall. Her growing list of collaborators include Zubin Mehta, Vladimir Spivakov, Jaime Martin, Michail Jurowski, James Feddeck and Jan Latham Koenig, amongst others.
