Hande Kuden, a 20-year-old Turkish violinist, is entitled to play at Deutsche Symphony Orchestra in 2013 after becoming successful at the orchestra's exam.
ADANA- Speaking to the Anadolu Agency (AA), Kuden said that she began singing with a chorus at an early age.
"I was influenced by a violinist at the age of seven and decided to focus on classical music with the support of my family," Kuden said.
As the years passed on, Kuden's ambitions grew on becoming a violinist and she qualified to study at the Cukurova Universty State Conservatory. At the conservatory, she received training for almost 11 years.
Experiencing her first performance in 2006, "Despite being very young, I have performed at several orchestras. Presidential Symphony Orchestra, Cukurova State Symphony Orchestra, Istanbul State Symphony Orchestra and Turkey Youth Philharmonic Orchestra are among those where I performed at. I did give concerts in Germany, Italy as well as in Russia in the past. Besides, I earned high level ranking in various competitions. I finished first the category of 18 years of individuals at the Internet Music Competition in Serbia last March," Kuden stated her achievements.
Her family and trainer Daniya Kaynova were taking part behind her all success, said Kuden.
Kuden said that she was one of the top 10 among 200 performers who gained the opportunity to study a master's degree at Berlin Hans Eisler Music Academy.
"It was an extremely hard test, there were competitors not only from Europe, also from US and from all over the world but I succeeded. I also had another test at Deutsche Symphony Orchestra in April and achieved that one, too. As of the beginning of the next year, I will be the only Turkish violinist who plays at Deutsche Symphony Orchestra," said Kuden.
