Amia Janicki

Amia Janicki is a young violinist from Switzerland. She is since 2021, an artist in residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel under the direction of Professor Augustin Dumay. She is also pursuing a master's degree at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Lausanne (CH) under the guidance of Svetlana Makarova.

Amia performs on prestigious stages such as the Musikverein, the Konzerthaus in Vienna, Bozar, Flagey, the Royal Palace in Brussels, La Monnaie/De Munt, Minato Mirai Hall, the House of Music in Moscow, and the Lithuanian National Philharmonic. As a soloist, she collaborates with various orchestras such as the Tonkünstler Orchestra, the Croatian Radio and Television Symphonic Orchestra, the Janacek Orchestra, the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra, Zagreb Soloists, and the Lithuanian National Symphonic Orchestra. She is invited to participate in numerous academies and festivals such as the Verbier Festival, the Villecroze Academy, the Ravel Festival, the Sion Festival, the Late Summer Music Festival in Dubrovnik, the Revermont Festival, and the La Roque-d’Anthéron Festival. She is also a laureate of numerous international competitions such as the Vaclav Huml Competition or the Leonid Kogan Competition.

Cross-disciplinary projects are also important to the Swiss violinist. She collaborated with the young director Lily Landecy to create a short film merging cinema and music, inspired by "Impressions d’enfance" by G. Enescu. The filming took place in 2023, produced by le Hangar and supported by the Villecroze Academy. It will soon be presented at festivals.

Additionally, she participated in performances of the ballet "Ukiyo-e" choreographed by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, at the Grand Théâtre de Genève and the Teatro Real de Madrid in 2022 and 2023.

In addition to classical repertoire, Amia is also interested in contemporary repertoire. In 2018, she performed at the Konzerthaus in Vienna as part of the "Casino Cage" project, a fusion of the complete Sequenzas by L. Berio and Variation IV by J. Cage, presented by the Wien Modern festival. In 2020, she participated in the creation of the chamber opera "A L’extrême bord du monde" by composer Harold Noben at La Monnaie/De Munt.

Alongside her solo engagements, Amia regularly collaborates in chamber music with musicians such as Tedi Papavrami, Xavier Phillips, Gilles Apap, Gary Hoffman, Miguel da Silva, and François Frédéric-Guy.

For her first CD, released under the Fuga Libera Libre label in 2023, she recorded the G. Enescu's Octet. Amia was a member of the Aurora Quartet, the first piano quartet in residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel, followed by Miguel da Silva and the Artemis Quartet.

She benefits from scholarships from the Irène Dénéréaz, Kiefer Hablitzel, Friedl Wald, and Zaczkowski Foundations, as well as from the Villecroze Academy.


Amia Janicki plays on a Niccolo Amati 1645 loaned by the Maggini Foundation with the generous support of LS Core company.
