Te Kōkī New Zealand School of Music welcomes international violinist Christian Altenburger.

Christian is in New Zealand as one of the Jury for the 2013 Michael Hill International Violin Competition. The Competition organisers have generously arranged for him to give NZSM violinists a masterclass on his way to Queenstown for the first round of competition for the 18 contestants. The masterclass session is open to the public, all are welcome.

Christian Altenburger studied at the University of Music in his hometown of Vienna and with Dorothy DeLay at the Juilliard School in New York. In addition to his many appearances since then as a soloist, chamber music has become an important aspect of his artistic work. Altenburger’s strong advocacy for the performance of contemporary music has resulted in premiers and recordings of composers such as Theodor Berger, Bert Breit, Gottfried von Einem, Wilhelm Killmayer, Thomas Larcher, Witold Lutoslawski, Werner Pirchner and Kurt Schwertsik.

For many years, Christian Altenburger held a professorship at the Hannover University of Music. In 2001, he was appointed a professorship at the Vienna University of Music. Since 2003, Christian Altenburger has been Artistic Director of the Schwäbische Frühling Music Festival whose architecturally attractive concert venues in southern Germany offer an ideal ambiance for chamber music as well as Symphony Orchestra concerts. In 2006 Altenburger became Artistic Director of the Loisiarte Festival in Langenlois, Austria.

This event is free and open to observers – all welcome.
