* Performing on the most exclusive and expensive electric violins ever made!
* High impact live performances featuring uplifting music!
* Career highlights include performing for Prince William and Her Majesty The Queen, being the 5-time Guinness World Record as the Fastest Violin Player in the world, receiving over 10 million views on Youtube, being sponsored by Swarovski Crystal and more!
The Swarovski Violinists are virtuoso violinists Linzi Stoppard and Ben Lee - the award winning international recording artist is the world's leading contemporary electric violin duo and world record holder for Fastest Violinist In The World. The Swarovski Violinists's performance is world class, spectacular and high impact.
The Swarovski Violinists perform on the most exclusive and expensive electric violins ever made. The Swarovski Violinists are the only string group in the world to be sponsored by Swarovski Crystal who collaborated with The Swarovski Violinists to create the Signature electric violins. Each violin has over 50,000 individually applied crystals as launched and displayed in Harrods.
To raise the bar even further The Swarovski Violinists collaborated with British jewellery designer Theo Fennell and bespoke violin manufacturer Bridge, to create the world’s first ever 24-carat gold-plated violins, adorned with ruby, sapphire and diamond encrusted skulls. It took over nine months to create the world's most expensive electric violins. A bespoke blend of carbon and kevlar was used, making them light enough to off-set the weight of the gold plating. Both instruments are worth over $2M each.
In 2013 Ben Lee became the 5-time Guinness World Record as the Fastest Violin Player in the world. Ben performed “Flight of the Bumblebee” by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov at over 17 notes per second making him the first player in history to break the magic-minute mark – Ben can proclaim to now have the fastest fingers in the world!
The Swarovski Violinists' eponymous debut album was released through Edel/Universal Records. The results are innovative but loving reinterpretations of hit anthems for the violin.
As Linzi says, “It’s completely fresh, no one thought that what we do was even possible. Everything you hear is violins! The style that we use when we play is more akin to that of a guitar player, with more soul and electricity – literally! We chose work from artists that are huge stadium acts, and that’s where we want to be.
We specialise in blowing away people’s preconceptions.” The Swarovski Violinists are already finding friends with music royalty who appreciate what they do. After raving, “I love what you’ve done, how did you get that sound?”, Francis Rossi appears on the album version of Quo’s ‘Down Down’, Nick Mason of Pink Floyd offered his services as a drummer and Roger Daltrey asked Linzi and Ben to support him!
Linzi and Ben’s background is music all the way – though Linzi is also signed to international modelling agency Nevs Models and she and Ben have both just become proud Prince’s Trust Ambassadors.
