Violinist Friedemann Eichhorn has made a name for himself rediscovering repertoire of past centuries. On this release, he presents world premiere recordings of Arnold Mendelssohn's violin sonata Op. 71 and Friedrich Gernsheim's Introduction and Allegro appassionato, Op. 38 alongside the all-time favorite third violin sonata by Brahms and the Romances by Robert Schumann. Born 1971 in Münster, Germany, Friedemann Eichhorn studied violin with Valery Gradow at the Mannheim University of Music. He continued his studies on the recommendation of Yehudi Menuhin with Alberto Lysy at the International Menuhin Music Academy in Switzerland and graduated from the Juilliard School New York where he worked with Margaret Pardee (violin), Earl Carlyss and Samuel Sanders (chamber music) and Miguel Harth-Bedoya (conducting). He was awarded scholarships from the National German Exchange Program, the Menuhin Academy and the Juilliard School among others. Friedemann also studied musicology and law at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz where he earned a Ph.D. He regularly concertizes with orchestras such as the St. Petersburg Philharmonic and Symphony, the Symphonies of Munich, Hamburg or the Radio orchestra of the SWR.
