Violinist Augustin Hadelich Debuts with National Symphony Orchestra
Augustin Hadelich will make his debut with the National Symphony Orchestra on June 6, 7 and 8, 2013, performing the Dvořák Violin Concerto. The concerts will take place at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., under the baton of the Czech conductor Jakub Hrůša. A December 2010 performance of Augustin performing the Dvořák with the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken-Kaiserslautern can be viewed on his YouTube channel.
Augustin’s National Symphony Orchestra debut comes in the midst of a season boasting a number of other important orchestral debuts, including with the Dallas, New Jersey, Saint Louis, San Francisco and Toronto symphonies; the BBC Philharmonic and Stuttgart Radio Orchestra; as well as his much-anticipated subscription debut with the New York Philharmonic. Last summer Augustin made his debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood and will return to Boston for his subscription debut in September of 2013. He has made three recordings for AVIE: Flying Solo, Echoes of Paris and Histoire du Tango.
