Augustin Hadelich

Violin

Biography – about the artist.

Augustin Hadelich has established himself as one of the great violinists of his generation. He has performed with all the major American orchestras, and his increasingly numerous appearances in Great Britain, Europe and the Far East have earned him a phenomenal reputation. Critics praise his outstanding technique, the stringency and persuasiveness of his interpretations and his ravishing tone.

In addition to returning to Hamburg again as Associate Artist of the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester, Hadelich is Artist in Residence of the Museumorchester in Frankfurt in 21/22 season. He looks forward to his debut with the Berlin Philharmonic in October 2021, as well as the world premiere of the violin concerto written for him by the Irish composer Donnacha Dennehy with the Philharmonie Zuidnederland. Further highlights include engagements with the WDR Sinfonieorchester, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Münchner Philharmoniker, Tonkünstlerorchester Niederösterreich, Mozarteumorchester Salzburg, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Finnish Radio Symphony, Orchestre National de France, Warsaw Philharmonic and Prague Spring Festival. In spring 2022, he embarks on his recital tour in Amsterdam, London, Frankfurt and Paris, among others. Further afield, he performs with Seoul Philharmonic, Taiwan Philharmonic, Minnesota Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, New York Philharmonic, as well as St. Louis, Houston, Indianapolis and Utah Symphonies.


In addition to his extensive concert activities in North America, he has performed worldwide with renowned orchestras such as the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Concertgebouworkest, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre National de Lyon, Orquesta Nacional de España, Oslo Philharmonic and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. Engagements in the Far East have taken him to the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra and NHK Symphony Orchestra. He was Artist-in-Residence with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra. He made his debut at the BBC Proms in 2016, the Salzburg Festival in 2018 and the Verbier Festival in 2021.

Hadelich's recording catalogue includes the concertos of Sibelius, Adès, Tchaikovsky, Lalo, Mendelssohn and Bartók, among others. In 2016, he received a Grammy Award for his recording of the violin concerto "L'Arbre des songes" by Dutilleux. A recording of the 24 Caprices by Paganini was released in January 2018 by Warner Classics. In April 2019 his second album as exclusive artist of the label followed with the concerts of Brahms and Ligeti.  He received an Opus Classic Award for his CD "Bohemian Tales", featuring Dvořák’s violin concerto recorded with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. His latest recording of Bach sonatas and partitas is also high acclaimed by critics.

Augustin Hadelich, an American and German citizen, was born in Italy in 1984 to German parents. He studied with Joel Smirnoff at the Juilliard School in New York. Hadelich made a significant career leap in 2006 by winning the International Violin Competition in Indianapolis. Further awards followed: In 2009 he received the prestigious "Avery Fisher Career Grant" in New York. In 2011, he was honoured with a Fellowship of the Borletti-Buitoni Trust. In 2015 Hadelich won the Warner Music Prize, which was awarded for the first time, and in 2016 he received a Grammy Award. In December 2017 he was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Exeter (UK). The trade magazine "Musical America" elected him "Instrumentalist of the Year" in 2018. He was appointed to the faculty of the Yale School of Music in June 2021.

Augustin Hadelich plays a violin by Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù from 1744, known as "Leduc, ex Szeryng", on loan from the Tarisio Trust.

Press.

„Sibelius’ Violin Concerto in the first half of the concert was exquisitely performed by Augustin Hadelich. His playing had great naturalness – nothing felt forced, never did it seem like he was in competition with the orchestra. His cadenza unfurled poetically, the double-stopping never gruff.“

Bachtrack, Mark Pullinger, 22.10.2022

„Hadelich plays with outstanding power of expression and great mastery, without ever smoothing over the score’s intentional roughness. With his carefully crafted tone he is able to espouse all Ligeti’s musical masks and provocations with great vigour. Thomas Adès’ cadenza drives Hadelich well and truly to the top of the circus tent. Magnificent!“

Süddeutsche Zeitung, Harald Eggebrecht, 22.06.2019

„Augustin Hadelich demonstrates a phenomenal style of violin playing. Incisive and full of temperament, with rubati both sensible and sensitive.“

Norddeutscher Rundfunk NDR Kultur, Philipp Cavert, 03.05.2019

„Augustin Hadelich is one of the best violinists in the world.“

Neue Zürcher Zeitung am Sonntag, Christian Berzins, 24.03.2019

„The essence of Hadelich’s playing is beauty: reveling in the myriad ways of making a phrase come alive on the violin, delivering the musical message with no technical impediments whatsoever, and thereby revealing something from a plane beyond ours.“

The Washington Post, Robert Battey, 08.12.2011
