Miriam Kramer was born in Connecticut. From a family already sporting two concert violinists and with the encouragement of violinist Henryk Szeryng, who straightaway recognized her talent, she began her studies at the age of four, and three years later gave her first public performance of the Mozart G Major Concerto.
Miriam’s debut recital at London’s prestigious Wigmore Hall drew praise from the critics. STRAD magazine stated, "the intensity and rich allure of Kramer’s performance was nothing short of spellbinding." A re-engagement with great success followed.
After a recent recital at the Alice Tully Hall in New York’s Lincoln Center – a rapturous review from THE NEW YORK TIMES said that Miriam was, "a gifted young violinist who proved a soulful performer showing flair and temperament, fine sensitivity and warmth."
She has performed most of the standard concerti – her concerts greeted with similar accolades for performances from Bach to Bloch and Brahms to Shostakovich in such halls as the Theatre Champs Elysees with Phillipe Herreweghe, Barbican Hall with Adrian Leaper, Queen Elizabeth Hall with David Josefowitz and Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center with Alexander Schneider. Her many recitals have taken her to Cardiff’s St David’s Hall, the London Palladium, the Purcell Room, the Swaledale and Ryedale Festivals, and the Dartington Festival where, in addition to master classes and solo recitals, she performed as soloist with the Dartington Festival Orchestra under the baton of Diego Masson.
Miriam has broadcasted with the BBC Concert Orchestra as soloist in the Beethoven Triple Concerto, on Classic FM, Radio 3, Radio Prague, Paris Radio Classique, and on BBC TV.
