Augustin Hadelich, violin

Overview

Consistently cited in the press for his “gorgeous tone,” “poetic communication” and “fast-fingered brilliance,” Augustin Hadelich has confirmed his place in the top echelon of young violinists. After performing a stellar debut with the Boston Symphony at Tanglewood playing the Barber Violin Concerto, he recently played an equally impressive subscription debut with the New York Philharmonic at Lincoln Center playing Lalo’s Symphonie espagnole. Among his upcoming worldwide engagements are the BBC Philharmonic, SWR Orchestra/Stuttgart and the Tampere Philharmonic. Also an enthusiastic recitalist, Mr. Hadelich has appeared at Carnegie Hall, The Frick Collection, Kennedy Center, the Chamber Music Society of Detroit, Kioi Hall, the Louvre, and the Vancouver Recital Society, to name a few. As a chamber musician, he has been a participant at the La Jolla, Marlboro, Ravinia, and Seattle festivals, and has collaborated with Midori at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater. Augustin Hadelich has recorded two CDs for AVIE: Flying Solo, a CD of masterworks for solo violin (including the Bartók solo sonata); and Echoes of Paris, which features French and Russian repertoire influenced by Parisian culture in the early 20th century. He has also recorded Haydn’s complete violin concerti with the Cologne Chamber Orchestra and Telemann’s complete Fantasies for Solo Violin.  A new CD, Histoire du Tango is scheduled for release in 2013. The 2006 Gold medalist of the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis, Mr. Hadelich is the recipient of Lincoln Center’s Martin E. Segal Award (2012), an Avery Fisher Career Grant (2009) and a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship in the UK (2011). Born in Italy in 1984, the son of German parents, Augustin Hadelich holds an artist diploma from The Juilliard School, where he was a student of Joel Smirnoff. He plays on the 1723 “Ex-Kiesewetter” Stradivari violin, on loan from Clement and Karen Arrison through the generous efforts of the Stradivari Society.

"He is able to let phrases soar in the air, making great and graceful arcs; and then he lets them land lightly, yet decisively. "

“He is able to let phrases soar in the air, making great and graceful arcs; and then he lets them land lightly, yet decisively. ”

Boston Globe

“His willingness to take the music at face value is its own kind of sophistication, and confirms him as a musician worth keeping a close eye on.”

Alex Ross - The New Yorker

“Hadelich, who is twenty-five, has all the fast-fingered brilliance that modern conservatory culture requires; the musicality and the freewheeling fantasy that he brings to bear, though, cannot be taught.”
