Erika Bordon

Born in Aosta, Italy in 1986 coming from an artistic family, her mother and grandfather (Guido Gelcich, student of Oskar Kokoschka) both painters, with a great dedication to music and art. Erika started with ballet dancing (2,5 years old) and at age 11 she switched definitely to the violin. She attended the Young Talent class at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague and continued her study in Rotterdam and later in Utrecht were she got her Bachelor and Master degree in Music Performance.

Her orchestra experience started early in her study and she played in the JON (JeugdOrkest Nederland), OGI (Orchestra Giovanile Italiana), Accademie of De Filharmonie (Antwerp) ,and the Nieuwe Philharmonie Utrecht. During the years she got the chance to work with great conductors such as Gianandrea Noseda, Edo de Waart, Martin Brabbins, Gabriele Ferro, Kristof Penderecki,Jurjen Hempel, Jussi Jaatinen and others. In 2011 she got invited by the CREA-orkest of Amsterdam to perform as soloist during their summer tour in Italy where they performed in Montecatini, Florence, Prato and San Gimignano.

The last few years she cultivated a large interest and passion for chamber music. Her chamber music repertoire goes from baroque to contemporary and she played in many different instrumental combinations. Since June 2012 she is the violinist of the professional Ensemble Modelo62 that focuses on playing contemporary classical music and often performing world premieres of fresh written pieces like for example the piece “e mi sovvien” by Diderik Wagenaar written especially for this ensemble. Also in the Utrecht Conservatory she performed as soloist in the contemporary music project by playing Spiri (1977) by Franco Donatoni. She also played the classic/romantic repertoire in several duos/trios/quartets. In 2008 she got invited to give a recital in the Salone Ducale of Aosta during the International Chambermusic Festival.

She often enjoys to play in particular projects in which not only music is involved but also other kinds of art. For example she played in a music theater production and in 2013 she participated in the project of The Pale Blue Dot where contemporary music was combined with poetry and visual art.

She also attended several Masterclasses with a.o. Ilya Grubert,Elisabeth Perry,Jean-Jacques Kantorov,Stefano Pagliani,Berent Korfker,Pavel Vernikov,Dimitri Chichlov Vivienne Mackie and Yayoi Toda.

She plays on a violin by Daniel Karinkanta, Buenos Aires, Argentina (1985)
