Savitri (20) is taught by David Takeno. After her recent performance of the Sibelius violin concerto, the Oxford Times wrote: "Ms Grier tackled it with remarkable confidence, poise and maturity, displaying both solid technique and natural musicality. With her virtuosic handling of the cadenzas, and the expressive movement of her body, she was mesmerising both to watch and listen to ... This was a compelling performance of one of the great early 20th century masterpieces, and it was a privilege to witness a new star in the making."
Savitri made her Royal Albert Hall debut in May 2012 with a performance of the Mendelssohn violin concerto. In July 2010, Savitri won the Tunbridge Wells International Young Concert Artists competition. She also played the Mozart Adagio in E at a concert in the Barbican Hall. She performed the Tchaikovsky concerto in the Turner Sims Concert Hall in December 2010, and again with the Junior Royal Academy of Music Symphony Orchestra in July 2011, after winning the Junior Academy Concerto Competition. In February 2012, Savitri won the Oxford Philomusica Concerto Competition with her performance of the Tchaikovsky concerto in the Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford. Forthcoming concerto appearances include performances of the Sibelius, Beethoven and Brahms violin concertos. She is currently reading Music at Christ Church, Oxford.
