Of Lithuanian origin but a long-time resident of Vienna, Julian Rachlin is a highly sought-after artist in his capacities as violinist, viola player and conductor. Despite his packed concert seasons he also manages to find time to teach and work for the interests of future generations as goodwill and humanitarian ambassador for major international organizations including UNICEF and the World Economic Forum. However, Rachlin is committed not only to young people but to the music of the future as well: he is associated with the premieres of numerous new works and he has had pieces written for him by such great composers as Giya Kancheli and Krzysztof Penderecki. He has travelled the world as a soloist and during the last concert season he was invited to oversee the work of more than a dozen orchestras as guest conductor. One of the highpoints of the 2015-16 season was when Julian Rachlin debuted not as soloist but as conductor as well in the Musikverein, Vienna, a place he holds dear to his heart. The programme in this grand concert hall featured a Mendelssohn violin concerto and a Mendelssohn symphony with Julian Rachlin at the head of the English Chamber Orchestra. He brings the same orchestra to Budapest for this concert of Beethoven works.
