Adi Brett

This is a portrait of Adi Brett

Adi Brett was born in Brighton and started playing the violin aged 4. At the age of 14 she was awarded a Government scholarship to The Purcell School of Music where she consequently won their concerto competition, culminating in a performance of Bruch’s violin concerto no.1 at St. John’s Smith Square, London.

Continuing her studies with Yossi Zivoni, Adi gained a scholarship to the RNCM where she won numerous prizes as leader of the Sirius String Quartet and lead all the college’s orchestras.

In 1997 Adi was generously awarded postgraduate funding by The Countess of Munster Trust, The Ian Fleming Trust and The Martin Trust to study with celebrated pedagogue Lorand Fenyves at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, Canada. Meanwhile, Adi was also invited to attend Aspen and Banff summer music festivals, performing in masterclasses with Dorothy DeLay, Donald Wielerstein, Glen Dicterow and Peter Zazovsky.

On her return, Adi won the position of Principal number 4 1st violin in the Hallé Orchestra, and was promoted to number 3 in 2002.

Adi plays on a 1906 Montanari violin purchased with the generous assistance of the Countess of Munster Music Trust.
