  • violin

Augustin Hadelich is recognized worldwide as one of the great violinists of our time. He will make his debut with the Berlin Philharmonic this coming October, collaborating with conductor Gustavo Gimeno in a performance of Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto. A summer highlight was the invitation from Esa-Pekka Salonen and the San Francisco Symphony for two performances of Brahms’s Violin Concerto in Davies Hall, which marked the orchestra’s first live concerts in well over a year. Mr. Hadelich has appeared numerous times with all of North America’s leading orchestras, including the symphonies of Boston, Cleveland, New York, and Montréal. In addition to his recent debut with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, his worldwide appearances include London’s Philharmonia Orchestra, the Danish National Symphony, and the Bavarian Radio Orchestra, in addition to major orchestras in the Far East, South America, New Zealand, and Australia. Born in Italy to German parents, Mr. Hadelich is now an American citizen. Among his many distinctions are an Avery Fisher Career Grant (2009) and the 2018 Instrumentalist of the Year award, given by Musical America. Mr. Hadelich plays the “Leduc, ex-Szeryng” violin by Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù of 1744, generously loaned by a patron through the Tarisio Trust.
