Juilliard Sylff Fellow to Give Violin Recitals in Japan

AugustinMr. Augustin Hadelich, a SYLFF fellow from The Juilliard School, will hold violin recitals with pianist Ikuyo Nakamichi in Tokyo and Osaka. He will also join the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra early this month to play Paganini’s Concerto No.1 under Maestro Kazuyoshi Akiyama. (see details below)

Augustin was awarded the gold medal at the 2006 International Violin Competition of Indianapolis and made his Carnegie Hall orchestra debut in January 2008. Lauded as a “brilliant violinist” in the New York Times, he has established himself as an eloquent and unique voice among the new generation of violinists.

Born in Italy in 1984 to German parents, Augustin holds a graduate diploma and the coveted Artist Diploma from The Juilliard School, where he studied under Joel Smirnoff and received a SYLFF fellowship. After suffering severe burns to 60 percent of his body in 1999, he overcame the adversity with his admirable fortitude and made an almost miraculous comeback.
