Italian-born German-American violinist Augustin Hadelich has firmly established himself is one of the new generation’s top-tier concert virtuosi.
A graduate of the Istituto Mascagni and The Juilliard School, Augustin was awarded 1st prize at the 2006 Indianapolis International Violin Competition – and was the recipient of the inaugural 2015 Warner Music Prize, a 2009 Avery Fisher Career Grant and a 2011 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship.
In February 2016, he was awarded the Grammy Award for the ‘Best Classical Instrumental Solo’ – for his recording of Dutilleux’s Violin Concerto with Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra.
Highlights of his 2016/17 season include return solo engagements with the New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Dallas Symphony, Danish National Orchestra, San Diego Symphony, and Saint Louis Symphony – and debuts with the Hamburg Philharmonic, Munich Philharmonic, Rotterdam Philharmonic, and the radio orchestras of Cologne and Frankfurt.
Augustin currently performs on the 1723 “Ex-Kiesewetter” Stradivari violin – on generous loan from Clement and Karen Arrison and the Stradivari Society of Chicago.
