Interpretation on a World-Class Level.

Spellbinding and virtuosic.

NRC Handelsblad


Ms. Resnick’s handling of the cerebral music of the Brahms concerto was mature, sensitive and spellbinding.

Critic James Connely

she has a quasi-devilish mastery as well as tonal beauty... A masterful, accomplished duo presentation.

A native of New York City, Emi Ohi Resnick made her debut in Carnegie Hall at the age of fifteen and has performed throughout the United States, Europe and Japan since then.

Emi is a founding member of the unique collective  Splendor  and co-initiator of the strikingly successful  String Quartet Biennale Amsterdam .


Already in its twenty-first year, her  Ruysdael String Quartet  has started an exciting season which includes concerts in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, De Doelen in Rotterdam, as well as tours of Japan and Turkey. The members of the quartet are artistic directors of the  Zoom! Festival  in Holland, the  Summer Chamber Music Open  in Burg Feistritz, Austria, and Linari Classics, in Italy. Highlights of the last few seasons include the honor of be invited to accompany their majesties the King and Queen of the Netherlands on their State visit to France, as well as a Wigmore Hall debut and a tour of Russia. Emi also enjoys performing with the  Serafino String Trio , which plays masterworks and unknown gems of the string trio literature.

Emi is often invited to be guest concertmaster of various orchestras throughout Europe. Recent thrilling experiences have been leading a tour, residency and a BBC Proms performance of The Academy of St Martin in the Fields.

She has collaborated as soloist and chamber musician with prominent artists such as Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Frans Brüggen, Philip Glass, Gary Graffman, Ton Koopman, Siegfried Palm, Jean-Guihen Queyras, Thomas Riebl and Jörg Widmann.

She studied at the Curtis Institute of Music with Szymon Goldberg, the Juilliard School with Louise Behrend and Robert Mann, the Prague Mozart Academy with Sándor Végh, and the Mozarteum of Salzburg with Thomas Riebl and Ruggiero Ricci, and has worked closely with the composer György Kurtág. She has been regularly invited to the Marlboro Music Festival and the International Musicians Seminar in Prussia Cove, England.

Emi currently divides her time between the United States and Europe, where she was concertmaster of the Netherlands Radio Chamber Orchestra and Professor of Violin at the North Netherlands Conservatory.
