Augustin Hadelich (b1984)

Born in Italy to German parents, Augustin Hadelich began learning the violin at the age of five having been inspired to do so by his older brothers (a cellist and a pianist). One of his greatest childhood inspirations was the discography of David Oistrakh. He trained at the Istituto Mascagni in Livorno, then The Juilliard School as a pupil of Joel Smirnoff , where he gained graduate and artist diplomas. Hadelich suffered a severe setback in 1999 when a fire at his parents’ farm left his upper body and bowing arm badly burned. After a two-year hiatus, however, he resumed his playing career and quickly became a regular participant at prominent festivals, including those at Marlboro, Ravinia, La Jolla and Aspen.

A particular feature of Hadelich’s musical output is his writing of cadenzas (published on his website). As he puts it himself: ‘I love composing my own cadenzas—I actually find that I learn a lot about a piece that way! It’s very difficult to write cadenzas for Mozart concertos—each time I perform them I make huge changes. Ideally, a cadenza should be interesting and funny, but also fit into the piece in a natural way, without putting the whole movement off-balance.’
