Named “2018 Instrumentalist of the Year” by Musical America, violinist Augustin Hadelich has performed with every major orchestra in the U.S. and is consistently sought after for his phenomenal technique and beauty of tone. He won a 2016 Grammy Award for “Best Classical Instrumental Solo” and was the inaugural recipient of the Warner Music Prize in 2015. Pianist Orion Weiss’s impressive list of accolades and awards includes the Gilmore Young Artist Award and an Avery Fisher Career Grant. A sought-after soloist, Orion has performed with the top U.S. orchestras including Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, and New York. Be sure to also watch both Orion and Augustin perform as soloists with the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra on two separate dates — Orion on Tuesday July 30 in the premiere of a double concerto (with pianist Shai Wosner) written by composer Jeremy Gill — and Augustin on Thursday August 1 with Music Director Rossen Milanov.
