"Josef came to the Philharmonic at the time of its fundamental transformation and has become the face and soul of the orchestra for the past nine years ..." Philharmonic General Manager David Mareček has this week said.

"His artistic achievements and personal commitment have been exceptional and we've been very lucky to have had such a world class Concertmaster ... his decision to focus on a solo career is the right step forward for him - and we support him and wish him the best," he has said.

A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and The Juilliard School, where he studied with Ida KavafianJaime Laredo and Itzhak Perlman, Josef is a former major prize winner at the Michael Hill, Kocian, Queen Elisabeth and Carl Nielsen International Violin Competitions.

He is represented for worldwide general management by Nymus Artists.
