Augustin Hadelich is one of the great violinists of our time. He will appear with over 25 North American orchestras in the 2019/2020 season, including Boston, Cleveland, New York, Montréal, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Houston, Oregon, Seattle, Toronto, and others. International highlights include performances with the Philharmonia Orchestra (London), NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra (Hamburg), Danish National Symphony, Oslo Philharmonic, Finnish Radio Orchestra, and Hong Kong Philharmonic. He is a frequent guest artist with major orchestras in the Far East, Mexico, South America, New Zealand, and Australia.

Named Musical America’s 2018 "Instrumentalist of the Year," Augustin Hadelich won a 2016 Grammy Award for his recording of Dutilleux’s Violin Concerto, L’Arbre des songes, with the Seattle Symphony. An exclusive Warner Classics artist, his first CD—Paganini’s 24 Caprices—was released in 2018. His second recording, the Brahms Concerto (with Mr. Hadelich's own cadenza) and the Ligeti Concerto (with Thomas Adès’s cadenza) followed in 2019. Bohemian Tales, to be released this summer, will include his performance of the Dvořák Violin Concerto with the Bavarian Radio Orchestra, conducted by Jakub Hrůša.

Augustin Hadelich plays the violin "Leduc, ex-Szeryng" by Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù of 1744, generously loaned by a patron through the Tarisio Trust.
