Linda’s artistic interests orbit around long-term collaborations and a multifaceted performance practice that stretches her limitations.

In recent years, alongside touring internationally to play New Music, she has been closely collaborating with Katherine Young, Pablo Vergara and Sam Salem on developing deeply personal works, as well as recording for Another Timbre and participating in large-scale dance projects (New Movement Collective‘s Casting Traces, Sadler’s Wells/Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s Sutra).

In October 2014 she started working towards a PhD in contemporary music performance at the University of Huddersfield researching the topic of interdisciplinary virtuosity.

In 2016/17 concert season she was busy co-curating and co-producing the 2017 Cut and Splice Festival in Manchester.

Linda teaches violin in Chetham’s School of Music and is a violin and viola lecturer at Leeds College of Music.

She was classically trained in her native Poznań with Marcin Baranowski, later in Munich with Christoph Poppen and in Manchester with Jan Repko. Linda owes her initiation to contemporary music to the Lucerne Festival Academy which she attended in 2007-09.
