Miriam Kramer began studying the violin at age four, giving her first public performance at the age of seven, with Mozart's Concerto in G Major. Since then, her solo recitals and concerto performances have taken her round the world to such venues as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center (USA) Wigmore Hall, Barbican Hall, St.Davids's, Queen Elizabeth Hall (UK), Vienna Konzerthaus, and Theatre Champs Elysees (France).
Praised by Strad Magazine as a 'violinist of superior natural talent, an exceptionally sensitive interpreter and a phrase maker of uncommon expressivity' and by the NY Times as a 'soulful and virtuosic performer'. Miriam has also received critical acclaim for her 6 CDs, including Editor's Choice for her recording of the violin music of Ernest Bloch, from Gramophone Magazine who has said 'Kramer's playing could hardly be more heartfelt. Scanning the catalogue for rivals, her musicianship is irresistible.' This disc has been listed in the 2017 guide-1001 Classical Recordings You Must Hear Before You Die-compiled by Matthew Rye and Steven Isserlis. Miriam has also been included in David Milson’s book, A-Z of String Players, 300 Great String Players.
Alongside her performing and recording schedule, Miriam maintains a busy private teaching practice and is regularly invited to give masterclasses at the Dartington Festival and for the Benslow Music Trust. She champions the music of new composers and her latest project, a recording of Elegy by British composer Andrew Pearce with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, has led to invitations from other composers in France and the USA to record and perform their music. Miriam has performed on Classic FM and Radio 3 and has appeared on BBC television in a tribute to Yehudi Menuhin and most recently in Victoria Wood's programme 'Nice Cup of Tea', filmed at Claridge's hotel.
Future invitations include performances in Las Vegas, Cincinnati, New York, Monaco and Israel.
