Her father, Vladislav Shoot, was composer-in-residence at Dartington Hall at the time and Veronika attended Dartington Primary School. She gave her debut piano recital aged 7.
Veronika went on to study, with full scholarships, at the Yehudi Menuhin and the Purcell schools of Music, first with Irina Zaritskaya and later with Tatiana Sarkissova. In 2011 she graduated from Royal Academy of Music in London with First Class Honours.
Veronika has participated in masterclasses with Murray Perahia, Jean-Bernard Pommier, Dmitri Bashkirov, John Lill, Joanna Macgregor, Pascal Devoyon, Boris Berman, and others.

2019


Saturday 9th March at 7.30pm
St Mary’s Church, Totnes
Totnes Early Music Society presents
Duo Dorado
A CELEBRATION of BACH
Some glorious music from the composer described in his day as ‘the Miracle of Leipzig’, From violin sonatas with basso continuo to solos for each instrument, this wide-ranging programme includes the great Sonata in A major for violin and keyboard, the beautiful G major Basso Continuo Sonata, and a highlight from The Art of Fugue.
We are thrilled to bring Hazel Brooks (baroque violin) and David Pollock (harpsichord) back to TEMS after a ten year gap. They have performed extensively in the UK and beyond, and their current project exploring 17th century English repertoire has led to some ground-breaking recordings, the latest being The Unknown Purcell for Chandos.

Saturday 27th April at 7.30pm
St Mary’s Church, Totnes
Totnes Early Music Society presents
Syrinx
BLAST FROM THE PAST
From the 14th to the 18th century, wind music could be heard everywhere from grand state occasions to the humblest village dance. Syrinx aim to recreate this impressive tradition playing bagpipes, shawms, dulcians, deutsche schalmei, baroque oboes and bassoon: their repertoire covers the rise of the professional wind band, with music from early anonymous masters, Dufay and Morley through to Handel and Telemann.
Syrinx received acclaim for their first album, The Saxon Alternative. Members play with leading period orchestras including the Academy of Ancient Music, The OAE, and the Akademie für Alte Musik, Berlin, and in ensembles such as I Fagiolini, Mediva, Blondel and Concentus VII.
