Wolfgang David
Violinist Wolfgang David has become ensconced on the international stage, both as a recitalist, and as a guest soloist with many of the world’s leading orchestras, including a performance of Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” with The New York Virtuosi Chamber Symphony. David’s growing reputation is marked in reviews by the likes of Thomas Frost, senior executive producer at Sony Classical, who foresees for him “a significant international concert and recording career.” The Washington Post says David has “scaled the heights of music making.

David performs widely in Europe, the United States, Russia, Japan, South Korea, India, Egypt, Israel, Turkey, and South Africa. He has been the winner of many competitions and prizes, including the University of Vienna’s “Foundation Stefanie Hohl” award, top prize in the Kulenkampff International Competition (Cologne), and the International Music Competition (Pretoria, South Africa). He has recorded two CDs with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

The musician performs on a violin built in 1715 by Carlo Bergonzi, Cremona, on exclusive loan to him from the Austrian National Bank.
