About

Swiss violinist Sebastian Bohren, whose star is rapidly in the ascendant, makes his AVIE label debut with two concertos from Mozart’s “year of the violin” – nos. 3 and 5 – paired with the composer’s youthful Symphony no.29. Sebastian’s interpretations bring out the sparkling energy of the concertos, written when Mozart was just 19 years old, yet at the same time a brandish a smoothly burnished sense of style.

His partners on the album, famed Hungarian violinist-turned conductor Gábor Takács-Nagy and Sebastian’s compatriots the CHAARTS Chamber Artists – comprised of leading European soloists and chamber musicians – perfectly embody these contrasting characteristics, both in their accompaniments and their reading of the Symphony which was written within a year of the concerti.

Sebastian is equally at home as a soloist and chamber musician. He has performed with the Lucerne Symphony, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and Basel Symphony Orchestras, among others, under such conductors as James Gaffigan, Andrew Litton and Ivor Bolton.

His chamber music collaborators have included Dmitry Sitkovetsky, Thomas Demenga and Konstantin Lifschitz. He plays the “Ex-Wanamaker-Hart” violin made by Guadagnini in Parma in 1761

“a varied tone palette that is as beguiling as his technique is striking” – The Strad

“refreshingly rich in colour and nuance”
– Guardian

“elegance, sweet tone and lithe sound” – Planet Hugill
