Korbinian Altenberger is one of the most sought after violinists and chamber musicians in Europe of the young generation today and we are delighted to welcome him to the school of music for this recital and masterclass.

Altenberger has won top prizes from numerous international competitions such as the Montreal Violin Competition, the Concours Tibor Varga, Michael Hill Competition and the Postacchini Competition. At the age of 12, he made his debut at the Salzburg Festival, and since then his playing can be heard regularly as a soloist and chamber musician on every continent.

His enthusiasm for chamber music has been fostered by frequent invitations to a wide variety of festivals in Ravinia, Caramoor, and Marlboro in the US, and Prussia Cove, Verbier, Moritzburg and Israel Chamber Project. Having held a position as the Principal Concertmaster in the Symphony Orchestra of the WDR in Cologne under Semyon Bychkov, Korbinian Altenberger has been selected by Maestro Mariss Jansons to be a concertmaster of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra since 2011.

Please visit Altenberger's website for more biographical information.
