Lithuanian violist Augusta Romaskeviciute is a passionate orchestra and chamber musician who has performed in numerous concert venues and festivals in Europe, USA and Brasil. She is a member of the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker, Germany. She has been awarded the President Prize at the Mendelssohn-Bartholdy Competition as well as scholarships by Lithuanian Arts Council, Oscar and Vera Ritter, P. Hindemith, Hertie and DOMS foundations.
Born in Vilnius, Lithuania, Augusta's first viola teacher was Petras Radzevičius. She continued her musical path in Germany, where she studied with Hartmut Rohde at the University of Arts Berlin, with Tatjana Masurenko in Music and Theather Academy Leipzig, and her postgraduate diploma she received in the class of Wolfram Christ, solo viola of Berliner Philharmoniker in Freiburg. Her musical vision was also strongly influenced by work with other renowned violists such as Kim Kashkashian, Jean Sulem, Thomas Riebl, Danusha Waskiewicz, as well as members of Quartetti Artemis, Alban Berg and Vogler.
Having been fascinated with orchestral music since an early age, her first professional orchestra playing experiences were gathered as an academist of Konzerthausorchester Berlin. Later on she collaborated with orchestras such as Staatsoper Hamburg, Orquestra Gulbenkian Lisbon, Staatsoper Berlin, and the Radio orchestras of Cologne and Leipzig.
Another great point of interest and endless inspiration for Augusta is chamber music repertoire. She regularly performs in different chamber music settings, including the concert venues of the Luzern Festival Academy, Aurora Festival Sweden, AIMS Solsona Spain, Bach Society Houston, Konzerthaus Berlin, Palais Wittgenstein Dusseldorf among others. She is the violist of "Linus" String Quartet.
Augusta also creates her own projects: most recently she toured Lithuanian cities with the viola and piano duo program "Viola, instrument with a human voice", string quartet program "From Kaunas to Odessa". She is the founder of the social-musical initiative "Music for all" in her home country that enables access to live classical music performances and supports young artists. The project is funded by Rotary Club Vilnius.
Augusta plays an instrument made by Michael Ledfuss (2010, Halle).
