In his review of this week's Concert From The Frick Collection, New York Times music critic Anthony Tommasini said, "Mr. Hadelich’s combination of rich-toned elegance and impish spontaneity was wonderful.” The Mr. Hadelich he's referring to is 30-year-old violin virtuoso Augustin Hadelich, who's been a very busy performer.

In just this past season, in addition to the Frick Collection concert, he’s played with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Detroit, New Jersey and San Francisco Symphonies. Across the Atlantic he’s performed this year with the Bournemouth and Royal Scottish National Orchestras.

For this concert Hadelich is joined by English pianist Charles Owens who has performed in all the leading concert halls in Britain, including regular recitals at Wigmore Hall. He also teaches at the Guildhall School in London.
