Cihat Askin

Born in Istanbul, Cihat Aşkin graduated from Turkish Music State Conservatory, under the tutelage of Ayhan Turan. He was able to perform all of Paganini’s Caprices before he was fifteen. He completed his studies in London studying with Rodney Friend at the Royal College of Music and Yfrah Neaman at City University. He is currently the Director of the Turkish Music State Conservatory of ITU and the co-chair of MIAM (Advanced Music Research Center). Being a prominent musician in Turkey, he has performed in festivals and concerts across Europe, Asia, Africa and the United States. He has appeared with violinists Shlomo Mintz and Ida Haendel and conductors J.L. Cobos, Yoel Levi and Alexander Dimitriev. He serves on the juries of many international competitions. He teaches at Keshet Eilon Violin master-classes, and founded the Aşkin Ensemble, a chamber orchestra that performs a wide range of music from the classics to the modern. His educational project, CAKA, aims to develop violin education throughout Turkey. Aşkin performs on a violin by Jean Baptiste Vuillaume (1846).
