Daniel Froschauer, the Vienna Philharmonic’s first violinist and section leader, will present Mozart’s “Violin Sonata No. 32 in B-flat Major, K.454,” Schubert’s “Violin Sonata in D Major, D. 384” and Beethoven’s “Violin Sonata in F Major” at Shenzhen Poly Theater on April 14. Pianist Christoph Campestrini will accompany him.
Froschauer began his musical career as a member of the Vienna Boys Choir. His studies on the violin led him to the Julliard School of Music in New York where he was a student of Dorothy DeLay and Masao Kawasaki. He completed his studies with Pinchas Zuckerman, Alfred Staar and Alfred Altenburger. In 1993, he made his debut in the Brahmssaal of the Vienna Musikverein with an evening of sonatas.
Froschauer has been a member of the Vienna State Opera Orchestra since 1995 and joined the Association of the Vienna Philharmonic in 1998. He has performed in both orchestras as a first violinist since 2004. In 2005, he became a member of the Vienna Hofmusikkapelle.
Froschauer has appeared as a soloist with the Japan Philharmonic, the West German Radio Orchestra, the New York Symphonic Ensemble, the Reno Philharmonic, the Northwest German Philharmonie and the New York Virtuosi Strings Chamber Orchestra. He is a member of the Kuchl Quartet and the Vienna Ring Ensemble. As a particular distinction he received the Young Artist Award from Musical America in New York in 1990 and he was also a prize winner at the Concours International Pierre Lantier in Paris in 1997.
Froschauer has also dedicated himself to numerous charitable projects such as the organization and performance of concerts and workshops for the Vienna Philharmonic and Suntory Music Aid Fund. He also appeared on concerts in the series “Music and Medicine,” a research project which studies the effects of classical music on cancer patients.
Froschauer performs on the violin “Ex Benvenuti, ex Halphen” by Antonio Stradivari from the year 1727, on loan from the Angelika Prokopp Foundation.
