The winner of many competitions and prizes, Wolfgang David has performed in major halls such as Konzerthaus and Musikverein Hall in Vienna, Carnegie Hall in New York, Cerritos Center in Los Angeles, Victoria Hall Geneva, UNESCO Hall Paris, Wigmore Hall in London, and Philharmonie in Cologne. Recently a CD with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was released on the Naxos label. He performs on a violin built by Carlo Bergonzi, Cremona after 1724, on exclusive loan to him from the Austrian National Bank.
Tim is currently principal cellist with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Sinfonietta. He is also much in demand as a soloist and chamber musician. Timothy Gill and Fali Pavri elicit a searing lyricism bringing tremendous sense of direction to the melodic invention which can so easily meander in lesser hands'. Classic CD. Tim Gill became principal cellist of the London Sinfonietta in June 2005.
In an effort to provide violists with a larger and historically accurate body of baroque repertoire, Rutledge founded Linnet Press Editions. Her technique book, The Violist's Handbook, has sold hundreds of copies throughout the world.
Recent performances and master classes on both modern and baroque viola include those in Germany, Sweden, South Africa, and across the United States.
Rutledge currently holds the position of Professor of Viola at the University of Iowa. She is a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music, the University of Iowa, and the Interlochen Arts Academy.
Rutledge lives in Iowa City with her husband, Mark Russell, and their son Jake. She plays a 17-inch viola made by David Burgess in 1978 and a baroque viola made by Paul Hart in 1979, and bows by David Samuels, Ralph Ashmead, and Christopher English.
He was invited by Zubin Mehta to perform with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and played over twenty-five different concerti with major orchestras in Europe, Israel and the US. Winner of the Queen Elisabeth and Busoni competitions, Tsachor is a graduate of the Juilliard School where he earned his doctorate. Tsachor's discography encompasses twenty-three releases for the EMI, DISCOVER, and DIVOX labels. He has presented masterclasses in the US, Europe, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Uriel Tsachor is "Steinway Artist."
