Esther Abrami

The career of violinist Esther Abrami contains elements of classical music-making, Internet influence, and high fashion. In 2019, she became the first classical musician nominated in the Social Media Superstar category at the Global Awards. Abrami was born in France in 1996 and grew up in Aix-en-Provence. She attended a small school in the country. At three, she was given a child-size violin by a grandmother who had hoped to pursue a musical career but gave up the violin upon her marriage. It took until she was ten for Abrami to return to the violin, but when she did, she knew within half an hour that she wanted to make the violin her life. She attended the Aix-en-Provence Conservatoire, graduating at 14. She then moved to England for studies at Chetham's School of Music in Manchester, where her teacher was Jan Repko. In 2017, she was accepted at the Royal College of Music in London, studying with Leonid Kerbel. It was around this time that Abrami began to cultivate her online presence, posting videos of herself practicing and explaining such issues as the difference between a Stradivarius violin and an ordinary instrument. One appearance was with a kitten in a waist pouch; that video garnered more than ten million views. Later, she represented the Royal College of Music as a student at the Manhattan Institute of Music in New York. Abrami took master classes from various teachers, including Shmuel Ashkenasi, Alexander Markov, and jazz violinist Regina Carter. She was accepted for master's degree studies at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with Wen Zhou Li, receiving a full scholarship. Abrami has appeared as a soloist at such venues as Carnegie Hall in New York, and the Royal Festival Hall, the Barbican Centre, and the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London. She has also performed at the studios of the Classic FM radio network in Britain. Various companies have attempted to leverage Abrami's music and considerable Internet presence; these include, in the words of Abrami's own website (accessed April 16, 2022), "leading brands across a variety of industry sectors. From luxury fashion to music streaming, luxury perfumes and cosmetics to technology start-ups." Signed to the Sony Classical label, Abrami released her eponymously titled debut album in 2022; it contained a composition of Abrami's own, Sainte Victoire en Sol mineur, for violin, orchestra, and programming.
