“I take delight in every minute of teaching and put the relationship with the student first. My goal is to communicate advice that enlivens the creativity of the student so we can seek efficient technical solutions and express the most refined interpretations together through the voices of our violins, based on the structure of the piece.”
Praised by audiences and critics alike for her “perfect” (Oberbayerisches Volksblatt), “brilliant” (Salzburger Nachrichten), and “amazing” (playliszt.reblog.hu) technique, as well as for her mature and compelling interpretations, Miranda Liu is among the most exciting young violinists performing today. “Breathtaking” and “wonderful” (New Jersey Arts Maven), her extensive musical knowledge and emotional intensity can be heard in her performances of master works – from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic eras to the fresh new works of present day composers. She has performed on numerous concert stages throughout Europe (Austria, Germany, Hungary, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Italy, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, UK), Asia (China, Korea, Taiwan), and the USA.
Her prodigious talent has resulted in her winning numerous first and top prizes at music competitions and playing in hundreds of recitals and concerts around the world. Since her first solo appearance with orchestra at age eight, she has gone on to solo with orchestras such as the Concerto Budapest Symphony Orchestra, the New World Symphony in Florida, the Rhode Island Philharmonic, the Las Vegas Philharmonic, the Redwood Symphony in California, the National Radio Orchestra of Romania, the Philharmonisches Orchester Budweis, the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, the Danube Symphony Orchestra Budapest, the Philharmonie Salzburg, the Norddeutsche Philharmonie Rostock, the Orquestra de Cámara Galega, the Ensemble de Cuerdas del Encuentro Santander, the Váci Szimfonikus Zenekar, the Neues Sinfonieorchester Berlin, the Liszt Academy Chamber Orchestra, the Baroque Orchestra of New Jersey, the Anima Musicae Chamber Orchestra Budapest, the Festival Chamber Orchestra of Balassagyarmat, the Starling Chamber Orchestra Cincinnati, the Kraków Philharmonic Orchestra and the Old York Road Symphony in Pennsylvania, among others. She has an extensive repertoire of over sixty works for violin and orchestra, and regularly performs at prestigious music festivals worldwide.

In 2016, András Keller appointed her concertmaster of the Concerto Budapest Symphony Orchestra, one of Hungary’s oldest and leading symphony orchestras.
