“Yulia Deyneka beguiles us with her softness, and with a cantabile which opens up new depths of sonority.”

(Tagesspiegel, March 2016)

Yulia Deyneka is a versatile chamber musician, with tenures as professor at the Barenboim-Said Academy and principal viola of the Berlin Staatskapelle.
She is also frequently to be heard as a soloist with various orchestras, most recently in Schnittke’s Viola Concerto under the direction of Andris Nelsons, and alongside Wolfram Brandl in Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante under Daniel Barenboim.
For over 10 years, she has been involved with the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, whose viola section is under her tutelage.
As of Autumn 2016, Yulia Deyneka will be a fixed member of the Boulez Ensemble, resident in the newly built Pierre Boulez Hall in Berlin.
