She won the Kreisler Competition in Graz in 1987 and the Bach Competition in Leipzig in 1988, as well as the Hanover International Violin Competition in 1991. In her upcoming concert, Weithaas is playing Ysaÿe’s sonatas together with the solo sonatas and partitas of J. S. Bach, and placing them in direct contrast with one another.
