Latica Honda-Rosenberg received international attention in 1998 being the first German violinist in the history of the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow to be awarded the silver medal. The journal The Strad wrote: " enormous strength, assurance, insight and willpower plus some of those alluring resonances one associates most with Heifetz, wonderful!" Recently, Latica Honda-Rosenberg opened the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra concert season with Shostakovich's Violin Concerto No. 1, conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy. Performances in Asia followed, with, among others, the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra in Hamburg, the WDR Broadcasting Orchestra Cologne in Hannover and Dortmund as well as at the Schleswig Holstein Festival, the Lower Saxony Music Festival and at the Jerusalem Chamber Music Festival in Israel. In the preceding years, concerts allowed her to travel throughout Europe, the USA, Japan and Israel. Performances in association with the German Symphony Orchestra Berlin, the MDR Broadcasting Orchestra Leipzig, the Beethoven Hall Orchestra in Bonn, the Chamber Orchestras Prague and Zurich, the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra, the Russian State Orchestra and the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra took her to the Berlin Philharmonic Hall, the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, the Herkules Hall in Munich, the Tonhalle Zurich, the Alte Oper in Frankfurt, the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid and the Palais de Beaux Arts in Brussels.
The immensely successful cooperation with producer Dieter Oehms began as early as in the year 2000. The complete recording of Ernest Bloch's violin work was voted CD of the month by The Strad. The TV channel ARTE introduced the young violinist to a wide audience in "Stars von morgen" (a series entitled "Stars of Tomorrow"). Another widely noticed recording of Shostakovich's Violin Concerto No. 1 and Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto followed. In 2003, Latica Honda-Rosenberg was appointed professor at the Musikhochschule in Freiburg/Breisgau. The artist has been taking up the challenge eagerly and owes it many new impulses. Latica Honda-Rosenberg stems from a Croatian-Japanese family of musicians and grew up in Germany. She followed her calling as a violin player from an early age on. When she was nine years old, she became a young student with Tibor Varga at the Music College in Detmold. She then proceeded with a three-year study programme with Zakhar Bron at the Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofia in Madrid and in Lubeck. There, she graduated in 1993 having passed her concert examination "with distinction". While still a student, she won awards at renowned competitions such as e.g. the "Reine Elisabeth" in Brussels, "Joseph Joachim" in Hannover or the "Wettbewerb des Deutschen Musikrates". For many years, her steady companion on her musical journey has been a magnificent violin, built by Domenico Montagnana in 1732.
