Augustin Hadelich in profile

Growing up on a Tuscan vineyard may be idyllic for some, but it had its limitations for a teenager with such prodigious musical talent as Augustin Hadelich. Born in rural Italy to German parents, he had complete freedom to develop his own musical voice although opportunities for training and chamber music playing were few. After a serious accident at age 15 interrupted his progress for two years, he moved to the US to study at the Juilliard School in New York where he now lives and flourishes. Energised by the pulse of the big city and the thrill of playing with orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony and the Cleveland Orchestra, he is more than living up to his growing reputation as one of the most gifted violinists of his generation.
