Kymia Kermani


« Very excited about the new Strawinsky production '100 Jahre le Sacre' in Ballhaus Rixdorf on 27th and 28th of April! »

Clarinettist Kymia Kermani, born in the Netherlands, attended Amsterdam Conservatory's Young Talent Class at fifteen, graduating on the Bachelor with Distinction. She finished her studies in 2011 as a scholar at the RCM and was generously supported by the VSB, Mengelberg and Prins Bernard Cultuur foundations and the Stichting Fundatie voor de Vrijvrouwe van Renswoude. As a soloist, Kymia has performed the world premiere of a concerto by Dutch composer jan van Dijk as well as performing the oldest concerto ever written by baroque composer J.M. Molter. Her performance was described by acclaimed clarinettist Anthony Pay as 'couldn't have been played better'. Kymia has performed throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East with eminent ensembles and orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the New London Orchestra and the Atlas ensemble. As an active chamber musican, Kymia has founded several ensembles in London and Berlin playing both classical and contemporary music. She has performed in Holland in the main chamber music festivals and halls, including the Concertgebouw. 2011 saw Kymia perform at the Royal Albert Hall and the Cadogan Hall as part of the RCM 'Rising Stars' series. She is a recipient of the RCM Clarinet Prize, the RCM Bass clarinet prize and the RCM Woodwind Ensemble competition prize. Kymia has appeared several times on Dutch Television and also on BBC Radio 3. In 2012 she was invited to participate at Banff Summer Arts Festival (Canada), Harare International Festival of the Arts (Zimbabwe) and a tour with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conductor by chief conductor Charles Dutoit brought her to Spain. Future chamber music concerts are being planned this year in Oslo and Milan. Her desire to make new innovative programs and her contact with fellow musicians throughout all Europe brought her to acting as artistic director of an interdisciplinair international concert series called Neuklang Neukölln which takes place in Ballhaus Rixdorf, Berlin.
