Augustin Hadelich is one of the great violinists of our time. From Bach to Paganini, from Brahms to Bartók to Adès, he has mastered a wide-ranging and adventurous repertoire. He is often referred to by colleagues as a musician’s musician. Named Musical America’s 2018 “Instrumentalist of the Year“, he is consistently cited worldwide for his phenomenal technique, soulful approach, and insightful interpretations. One of Germany’s most prestigious newspapers, the Süddeutsche Zeitung, wrote about Hadelich’s recording of the 24 Paganini Caprices: “Anyone who masters these pieces so confidently has, so to speak, reached the regions of eternal snow: he has reached the top.”
Born in Italy, the son of German parents, Augustin Hadelich is now an American citizen. He holds an Artist Diploma from The Juilliard School, where he was a student of Joel Smirnoff. After winning the Gold Medal at the 2006 International Violin Competition of Indianapolis, concerto and recital appearances on many of the world’s top stages quickly followed. Among his other distinctions are an Avery Fisher Career Grant (2009); a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship in the UK (2011); the inaugural Warner Music Prize (2015); a Grammy Award (2016); as well as an honorary doctorate from the University of Exeter in the UK (2017). Augustin Hadelich plays the violin “Leduc, ex-Szeryng” by Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù of 1744, generously loaned by a patron through the Tarisio Trust.
