Frank-Peter Zimmermann Serge Zimmermann Antoine Tamestit Berliner Barock Solisten Kammerorchester des Symphonieorche

Frank Peter Zimmermann is widely regarded as one of the foremost violinists of his generation. He has performed with all major orchestras worldwide, including the Berliner Philharmoniker, with whom he made his debut in 1985 with Daniel Barenboim; the Wiener Philharmoniker, with whom he first played in 1983 with Lorin Maazel in Salzburg; and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, as well as orchestras in London and across the United States. Zimmermann is a regular guest at major music festivals such as those in Salzburg, Edinburgh, and Lucerne. Over the years, he has built an impressive discography, recording virtually all major concerto repertoire from Bach to Ligeti, Dean, and Pintscher. He has also recorded Ysaÿe's six solo sonatas, Paganini's 24 Caprices, and the complete violin sonatas of J.S. Bach and Mozart. Born in 1965 in Duisburg, Germany, Zimmermann began learning the violin with his mother at the age of five. He studied with Valery Gradov, Saschko Gawriloff, and Herman Krebbers. Zimmermann plays the 1711 Antonius Stradivari violin "Lady Inchiquin," which is kindly provided by the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf, "Kunst im Landesbesitz"
