Isabelle Faust studied the violin with Christoph Poppen and Dènes Zsigmondy. In 1987 she won First Prize in the International Leopold Mozart Competition, and in 1993 the Premio Paganini in Genoa. The renowned magazine Gramophone gave her its Young Artist of the Year Award for her first recording of sonatas by Béla Bartók, in 1997.

Isabelle Faust appears with numerous orchestras, including the Hamburger Philharmoniker, the Radio Symphony Orchestras of Stuttgart, Munich, Cologne and Leipzig, the Münchner Philharmoniker, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the Philharmonia Prague, the AVRO Radio Orchestra Hilversum, Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, the Münchner Kammerorchester and Camerata Salzburg. Her tours have taken her to many European countries, as well as Israel and Japan. She is regularly invited to perform with such conductors as Paavo Berglund, Marek Janowski, Sakari Oramo and Jiří Bělohlávek. She made her debut in the USA in 1995, playing Paganini’s Concerto no.1 with the Utah Symphony Orchestra under Joseph Silverstein.

Whilst not neglecting the classical and Romantic repertoire, Isabelle Faust is a noted interpreter of the great twentieth-century works of Bartók, Berg, Ligeti, Lutosławski and Takemitsu.
