Friedemann Eichhorn

One of the most creative and versatile artists of his generation, German-born Friedemann Eichhorn’s artistic activities range from performing early Baroque music on period instruments to classical and contemporary works with renowned orchestras and chamber music partners. Among many other pieces, Friedemann Eichhorn rediscovered and first recorded the complete violin concertos by French virtuoso Pierre Rode. He studied with Valery Gradow, Alberto Lysy and Margaret Pardee and graduated from the Mannheim University of Music and Performing Arts, the International Menuhin Music Academy and The Juilliard School. He also earned a PhD in musicology at the University of Mainz. Friedemann contributes articles to encyclopedias and edits violin sheet music for G. Henle and Schott Music publishers. He holds a violin professorship at the University of Music Franz Liszt Weimar and is artistic director of the Kronberg Academy.
