Signed exclusively to Decca Classics in 2020 at the age of 24, American violinist Randall Goosby is acclaimed for the sensitivity and intensity of his musicianship alongside his determination to make music more inclusive and accessible, as well as bringing the music of under-represented composers to light.

Highlights of Randall Goosby’s 2023–24 season include debut performances with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Andris Nelsons, National Symphony and Thomas Wilkins, Pittsburgh Symphony and Manfred Honeck, and Seattle Symphony and St. Louis Symphony both under Christian Reif. European debuts include a European tour with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra under Yannick Nezet-Séguin, and appearances with the Danish National Radio Symphony and Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Oslo Philharmonic and Ryan Wigglesworth, and Lahti Symphony and Roderick Cox.

During 2023–24 Goosby will be Artist in Residence at London’s Southbank Centre, which will include a return to the London Philharmonic Orchestra performing Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 3 under the direction of Gemma New, and both recital and chamber concerts. Other upcoming recital appearances include Chamber Music Cincinnati, Emory University in Georgia, Elbphilharmonie Recital Hall in Hamburg, Perth Concert Hall in Scotland, and La Società dei Concerti in Milan.

Randall Goosby was First Prize Winner in the 2018 Young Concert Artists International Auditions. In 2019 he was named the inaugural Robey Artist by Young Classical Artists Trust in partnership with Music Masters in London; and in 2020 he became an Ambassador for Music Masters, a role that sees him mentoring and inspiring students in schools around the United Kingdom.

A former student of Itzhak Perlman and Catherine Cho, he received his bachelor’s, master’s and Artist Diploma degrees from The Juilliard School. He plays the Antonio Stradivarius, Cremona, “ex-Strauss,” 1708 on generous loan from Samsung Foundation of Culture.
