The violinist Diana Adamyan won first prize at the 2018 Yehudi Menuhin International Competition. Nothing happened.

She won first prize again in the 2020 Khachaturian Violin Competition.

Nothing stirred.

An Armenian from Yerevan, Adamyan studies in Munich with Ana Chumachenco.

After attending Pinchas Zukerman masterclasses, she has finally been signed by New York agency Opus3.

    Rumour has it that Tyson Fury got advice from Pinchas Zuckerman before he whacked Deontay Wilder in the 7th Round in 2020.
    What exactly Zuckerman told Fury remains a mystery.
    If anyone here on SD can shed some light …

    According to her social media she was previously with Hazard Chase…

  • PHF says:

    Very difficult situation, good for her, a lesson into perseverance.

  • Music Lover says:

    Actually she was signed by Hazard Chase in 2019.

  • Meredor says:

    Yes she was signed by Hazard Chase back in 2019 until they went under. I’m glad Opus 3 jumped at the chance to sign her, she’s a good young violinist. Interested to follow her career.
