 Update me on new releases by Zehetmair

Thomas Zehetmair (b1961)

The playing of Thomas Zehetmair is characterised by a palpable conscientiousness, pervading the varied recordings selected here. He studied violin with his father Helmut at the Salzburg Mozarteum (where both his parents were teachers) and made his debut at the Salzburg Festival when he was sixteen, participating in master-classes given by Nathan Milstein and Max Rostal. His fastidious approach to learning and performing music is notably borne out in the ethos of his highly successful Zehetmair Quartet. Reacting in frustration to the ubiquitous practice of learning and rehearsing a chamber work just a few days before performance at a festival, the members now devote themselves to learning just one programme for each season and play from memory both in concert and in the recording studio. The Quartet has received numerous accolades for its recordings, including the Deutscher Schallplattenpreis, The Gramophone Record of the Year, Diapason d’Or and Edison Award.

Zehetmair’s activities extend to conducting: he has appeared with various top European orchestras and in the dual role of soloist-director has worked with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie and the UK’s Northern Sinfonia.
