Augustin Hadelich is one of the great violinists of our time. From Adès to Paganini, from Brahms to Bartók, he showcases a wide-ranging and adventurous repertoire and is often referred to by colleagues as a "musician's musician." Recently named Musical America’s 2018 "Instrumentalist of the Year", he is consistently cited for his phenomenal technique, soulful approach, and insightful interpretations in solo appearances around the world. An active recitalist, Augustin Hadelich’s numerous engagements include appearances at Carnegie Hall, the Concertgebouw/Amsterdam, The Frick Collection/New York, Kennedy Center/Washington, Kioi Hall/Tokyo, the Louvre, and the Wigmore Hall/London.
One of the most sought-after soloists in his generation of young American musicians, the pianist Orion Weiss has performed with the major American orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, Boston Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and New York Philharmonic. His deeply felt and exceptionally crafted performances go far beyond his technical mastery and have won him worldwide acclaim.
