Awarded the Beethoven Ring in 2008, Lauma is highly acclaimed for her interpretations of Germanic classical and romantic repertoire. In recent seasons, Lauma Skride has appeared with Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, Hamburg Symphony Orchestra, Dresden Philharmonic, and the Orquesta de Gran Canaria. Lauma Skride performs with such conductors as Andris Nelsons, Kristjan Järvi, Anu Tali, Muhai Tang, Peter Ruzicka, John Storgårds, Pedro Halffter, André de Ridder, Yan Pascal Tortelier and Cornelius Meister.

Lauma Skride is also committed to the long established duo with her sister, violinist Baiba Skride. In October 2011, the duo premiered Hans Abrahamsen’s double concerto with the Royal Danish Orchestra in Copenhagen and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra – a work that was composed for the pair.

Passionate energy, youthful vigour and musical sensitivity have become the trademarks of the Skride duo. Other chamber music partners of Lauma Skride include cellist Daniel Müller-Schott, Sol Gabetta and Julian Steckel, as well as Jörg Widmann and Christian Tetzlaff and the Armida Quartett.

Lauma Skride recorded Fanny Hensel’s piano cycle Das Jahr for Sony in 2007 and received an ECHO Classic Award as Best Young Artist for this recording.
