     Thomas Zehetmair

Thomas Zehetmair was born into a musical family in Salzburg, studied violin with his father at the Mozarteum and made his debut, at the age of 16, at the 1977 Salzburg Festival. Now a soloist of international standing, he is a regular guest with orchestras inclusing the Chicago, Philadelphia and Boston Symphony Orchestras, the Berlin, Munich and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Concertgebouw Orkest Amsterdam, and the Gewandhaus Orchester Lepizig. Conductors with whom he has worked include Daniel Barenboim, Herbert Blomstedt, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Heinz Holliger, Roger Norrington, Simon Rattle, and Esa Pekka Salonen. An ardent advocate of contemporary music, Zehetmair gave the first performance of Holliger's Lieder ohne Worte II and in 1997 premiered also his Violin Concerto at the Salzburg Festival. Zehetmair has recorded the violin concertos of Berg, Hartmann, Janacek, Brahms, Dvorak, Schumann and Mozart - as well as Paganini's 24 Caprices - for Teldec, and recently released recordings of the Bach and Bart?k violin concertos with Berlin Classics. For ECM New Series, Zehetmair previously recorded B.A. Zimmermann's solo violin sonata, and plays alongside the Hagen Quartet, Daniel Phillips, Hatto Beyerle, and Markus Stocker in a 1984 realization of Shostakovich's Two pieces for string octet, op. 11 on Volume Two of Edition Lockenhaus.



One of the most significant violinists of his generation, Thomas Zehetmair is now respected internationally as a violinist, conductor and chamber musician.

Since 2002, he has been Music Director of the Northern Sinfonia (a Founding Partner of The Sage Gateshead) and with them has worked on many projects, including a number of concerts to celebrate the opening of The Sage Gateshead in 2004. Other recent projects have included a European tour throughout Germany, Austria and Hungary in which Thomas play/directed works by composers as wide-ranging as Beethoven, Rebel, Cashian and Bach. Following on from this highly succesful tour, further concerts are planned in these countries and others, including a tour of South America. Thomas Zehetmair and the Northern Sinfonia return to the BBC Proms in 2006.

In addition to his commitment to the standard violin repertoire, Thomas Zehetmair dedicates much of his time to contemporary music. He has given a number of premieres including Holliger's violin concerto (written for Zehetmair) and the concertos of James Dillon and Hans Jurgen von Bose. He has recorded almost the entire violin repertoire.

In 1994 Thomas Zehetmair formed the Zehetmair Quartet with whom he has recorded string quartets by Hartmann and Bartok. Their recording of the Schumann quartets received the "Diapason D'Or de L'Annee" and the "Gramophone Recording of the Year" in 2003
