Alix Lagasse

Second Violin

Member since 2019, Professor at the Royal College of Music Junior Department

‘I started the violin at the age of three with the Suzuki method, following in the footsteps of my elder sister. My violin teacher tells me he would put me on top of the living room table during my lessons in order not to break his back while teaching me as I was so small! My first violin was a well put together biscuit box with a ruler as the fingerboard, and a wooden spatula as my bow!’

Born in Antwerp in 1991, Alix Lagasse graduated from the Artist Diploma Course at the Royal College of Music with Itzhak Rashkovsky in 2017, after completing her Masters degree there.

Alix has won several prizes in international competitions. She became a laureate in the Lions European Musical Competition and won first prize in the Belgian Dexia Classics Competition. With her duo partner Maria Tarasewicz, Alix continues to gives recitals across the UK and the continent.
