Emmy Verhey

Emmy Verhey (born 13 March 1949) is a Dutch violinist.


Verhey got her first violin when she was 7. Recognized soon as a child prodigy, she went to study at age 8 with Oskar Back. Later she studied with Herman Krebbers, Bela Dekany, Wolfgang Schneiderhan. After winning the Oskar Back competition, she got a scholarship to study one year with David Oistrakh in Moscow. [ [http://www.oskarback.nl Stichting Studiefonds Oskar Back] ]

Verhey has played under conductors Riccardo Chailly, Bernard Haitink, Mariss Jansons, Leonard Bernstein, David Zinman, Jean Fournet and with fellow violinists Yehudi Menuhin, David Oistrakh, Igor Oistrakh. She has also played with soloists Youri Egorov, Janos Starker and Maria João Pires. She has performed in Europe, the United States, Israel and Japan. She is known for her solid technique and her warm and rich tone. Her repertoire spans all the range from early to contemporary music.

Verhey taught the violin at Utrecht's Conservatory from 1983 to 2002. In 1991 she co-founded the Camerata Antonio Lucio, a string ensemble whose repertoire includes works from the 18th to the 21st century.

She has recorded works by J.S. Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Alphons Diepenbrock, Dvorák, Felix Mendelssohn, Mozart, Schubert and Tchaikovsky among others. [ [http://www.arkivmusic.com/classical/Name/Emmy-Verhey/Performer/16569-2 Arkivmusic item] ]


In the late seventies Verhey acquired the 'Earl Spencer', a Stradivarius from 1723 which she played until she bought a Guarneri from 1676 in the late nineties.
