Maja Horvat shares the higher power of music in her performances so that everyone can find comfort in art. She explores the magic of her instrument, giving contemporary pieces a good start in life and playing unknown gems from the 20th century as well as celebrated masterpieces.

Maja made her Wigmore Hall debut as first violinist of the Brompton Quartet, of which she is a founding member. In 2019 she was awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Emily Anderson Prize. Maja has performed as a soloist with orchestras such as the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra, the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Mendelssohn Chamber Orchestra and has performed as concertmaster of the Royal College of Music Symphony and Philharmonic Orchestra and the Echo Ensemble. She is a Tillett Debut Scheme Artist for 2022/23.

In 2022 Maja graduated from the Royal College of Music London where she worked with internationally acclaimed performers including Maxim Vengerov, Alina Ibragimova, Ivry Gitlis, Nicola Benedetti, Daniel Rowland and Leonid Kerbel.
