Violinist Raimund Lissy, member of the Vienna Philharmonic, has long been dedicated to uncover the works of Austrian composer Joseph Mayseder and make them available to a wider audience. After publishing two recordings with chamber music by the violin virtuoso who was born in 1789 in Vienna, the third volume contains violin concertos by Mayseder. Joined by the newly formed Joseph Mayseder Orchestra under the baton of Helmut Zehetner, Lissy presents the concerts for violin and orchestra No.1 in A minor, op.22 (1813) and No.3 in D major, op.28 (1811) as well as the Concertino for violin and orchestra No.2 in E major, op.53 (1835).

Raimund Lissy on the typical Mayseder style: 'Skillfully composed virtuosic passages for the violin alternate with pleasing cantilena, and there is a wealth of successful musical ideas that make rediscovering this music very rewarding.'

Raimund Lissy was born in Vienna in 1966 and received his first violin lessons at the age of four. He went on to study with Thomas Kakuska at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna (then the Wiener Musikhochschule) as well as with Alfred Staar. After working as an orchestral musician in the Arena di Verona, he joined the orchestra of the Vienna State Opera in 1988. In 1991 he became a member of the Vienna Philharmonic. That same year, he became first chair of the second violins; since 1993 he has been principle of the second violins for the Vienna Philharmonic and the Orchestra of the Vienna State Opera. Raimund Lissy has also been active in the Wiener Hofmusikkapelle since 2013.

As second violinist in the Ensemble Wien, Raimund Lissy is also intensively dedicated to chamber music. With this string quartet formation, since 1994 he has performed in the subscription cycle Freude an Musik (Joy in Music) for the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde.
