Cristina Cordero

Born in Madrid, Spain in 1998, Cristina started playing the viola at 5 years old, and continued her studies with Diemut Poppen at the Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía in Madrid. She subsequently earned her Bachelor’s degree in 2020 from the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich under the tutelage of Hariolf Schlichtig. Later, she pursued her Master's studies with Professor Nobuko Imai, once again at the ESMRS. Other influential mentors during her artistic development include professors Jonathan Brown, Wenting Kang, and Heime Müller. 

She is a top prizewinner of several international competitions, including the First Prize and Juventudes Musicales de España Award at the El Primer Palau Competition and the First Prize at the International Chamber Music Competition Gerhard Vogt. She has also performed as a soloist with orchestras, such as Orquesta Sinfónica de Barcelona y Nacional de Cataluña, Orquesta Filarmónica de Castilla La Mancha, Orquesta de Cámara Andrés Segovia, Orquesta Sinfónica de Cuenca in Ecuador, Orquesta Filarmónica del Desierto in Mexico and Orquesta Sinfónica Freixenet.

Passionate about chamber music, Cristina performs regularly across Europe in different formations and has been a guest artist at numerous prestigious festivals, including Verbier, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Schloss Elmau and Krzyzowa-Music, where she has had the honor of collaborating with world-renowned musicians such as Gary Hoffman, Viviane Hagner, Daniel Stabrawa and Nobuko Imai.

Her creative spirit has led her to find new ways to broaden her instrument’s repertoire and bring original ideas to modern audiences. Collaborating with pianist Juan Barahona, they have created the multidisciplinary project "Romeo & Juliet: a Story in Music” that has been premiered in 2021 at the Palau de la Música de Barcelona and already presented in numerous venues across Spain and South America.

Cristina is a viola and chamber music professor at Conservatorio Superior de Música de Aragón (Zaragoza, ES) and Escuela Superior de Música Forum Musikae (Madrid, ES).
