Benjamin Baker - Violin

Since winning 1st Prize at the 2016 Young Concert Artists International Auditions in New York and 3rd Prize at the Michael Hill Competition in New Zealand Benjamin has established a strong international presence.

Described by the New York Times as bringing ‘virtuosity, refinement and youthful exuberance’ to his debut at Merkin Concert Hall he is much sought after as soloist and chamber musician.  

Recent highlights include regular appearances at Wigmore Hall and on BBC Radio 3, his debut with Scottish Chamber Orchestra at the East Neuk Festival and with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra in NZ, alongside solo recordings with the BBC Concert and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras. In 2021 Delphian Records released his CD with Daniel Lebhardt to critical acclaim.  

He has undertaken tours of the USA, Colombia, China and Argentina and taken part in the Al Bustan Festival in Lebanon and the Sanguine Estate Music Fesitval in Australia.  

2021 sees the launch of his festival in Queenstown, New Zealand - At the World’s Edge Festival and solo appearances with the Auckland Philharmonia and Fort Worth Symphony Orchestras. 

Benjamin plays on a Giovanni Grancino from 1694 on generous loan from a private collection. He was a prize-winner at the YCAT International Auditions in 2013.


The fine violinist Benjamin Baker… brought virtuosity, refinement and youthful exuberance to a daunting program.
