Christian Vince, South West Londoner

"The new wave wizard"
Home: Witaj


‘The fearless champion of contemporary music for baroque violin.’

New music + period instruments. It’s not rocket science.

Described as 'the new wave wizard' (South West Londoner), Ada has inspired over 150 new works for baroque violin and counting.
Relentless in her drive to create a ‘New Baroque’, breaking out of endless cycles of Bach partitas and Vivaldi concerti and pushing the boundaries of what is possible.

‘I love Bach and Biber as much as anyone, but there’s so much more life in period instruments than just music written 300 years ago; there’s so much more to say.’

Radio broadcasts with the BBC, Radio Soest (Netherlands), Argentina Classic National Radio,
Radiotelevisione Svissera, and Poznan Radio Klasyka have all featured Ada’s many new recordings, but it’s her bold music videos that have captured the imagination of composers, musicians and new audiences across the world from Peru to Thailand.
MMA cages, underground carparks, glamourous historic buildings, gothic churches; forget pretentious, this is for the new wave of classical audiences.

Ada’s latest commissions, on show during her 2023 USA tour, took audiences in Seattle and Portland by storm, encouraging frenzied discussion at the annual New Music Gathering (keynote by Caroline Shaw) and prompting countless entries to Ada’s revolutionary composition competition named after Czech harpsichordist and fellow new music-enthusiast Zuzana Ruzickova.

Collaborations with acclaimed period ensemble Florilegium, and a new solo album, have come thick and fast, receiving invitations from the likes of São Paulo Contemporary Composers Festival for future seasons.
Other recent highlights have included appearances at the BBC Proms, solo performances of Viotti’s Sinfonia Concertante with Simon Standage at the English Haydn Festival amongst others.

Ada will be releasing a new album of contemporary music in January 2024.

A graduate of the Royal College of Music, and a postgraduate of the Royal Academy of Music, Ada is an international prize-winning violinist. Recipient of the Henry Wood Award, Star Award by the Countess of Munster Musical Trust, the Margot MacGibbon Award, the Anthony Edward Brookes Award, Ada has also received Honourable Mentions at both the Greater Poland Music Competition, Polish National Forum of Young Instrumentalists and 3rd prize-winner of the Rising Stars Grand Prix in Berlin amongst countless other competition honours.

As both a modern and baroque violinist, Ada has performed at many of the UK’s most prestigious venues and festivals including Buckingham Palace, Royal Festival Hall, Barbican, Royal Albert Hall, Cadogan Hall, St Martin-in-the-Fields and the Royal Opera House, including performances with the Gabrieli Consort, The English Concert, The Academy of Ancient Music, The Sixteen, St James' Baroque and Florilegium.

Ada is kindly supported by Help Musicians and is extremely grateful for the generous loan of an 18th century Cremonese violin from the Harrison Frank Foundation.


NEW BAROQUE is an album of contemporary music, pushing the boundaries of creativity and what is possible on baroque violin. All works commissioned by violinist Ada Witczyk from former winners of the Růžičková Composition Competition (established in 2020).
