 Update me on new releases by Schneiderhan

Wolfgang Schneiderhan

Though never known as a great virtuoso, Wolfgang Schneiderhan was considered a stylish and thoughtful musician, appearing with his own trio and string quartet as well as with many great conductors and celebrated pianists throughout his career. He held the Viennese tradition in high regard and consciously nurtured an artistic ethos inherited from the likes of Joachim, Auer and Kreisler. The latter he considered not only a great violinist but also a philanthropist and champion of worthy causes; in 1992 he established the first Austrian violin competition in Kreisler’s name.

Having begun violin lessons with his mother at three and given a public recital at five, he went to Czechoslovakia to study with the controversial Otakar Ševčík whom Schneiderhan accused of wanting to turn his pupils into Paganinis, and of drilling rather than teaching. Reacting to this, he completed his studies in Vienna with Julius Winkler who encouraged a more creative, artistic approach.
