Volkhard Steude (Violin)
Volkhard STEUDE (violin) was born in 1971 and began violin studies from 5 years of age at the Konservatorium Cottbus in Brandenburg in the former East German Democratic Republic. In 1987 he placed second in the East German youth competition and from 1988 began his higher education at the Hochschule für Musik "Hanns Eisler" in Berlin under the tutelage of Joachim Scholz and Professor Werner Scholz, during which he won a number of international competitions. In 1993 he became the first concertmaster of the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra and after acquiring his Diplom degree in Berlin in March 1994, continued his studies in Vienna under Professor Alfred Staar.
In November 1994 Volkhard Steude was appointed concertmaster of the Orchesters der Wiener Staatsoper, and in 2000 was also named concertmaster of the Wiener Philharmoniker. As a soloist, he has performed with the Wiener Philharmoniker under Giuseppe Sinopoli and Daniel Barenboim, and his other numerous solo performances in Europe and Japan include the Beethoven Violin Concerto and Triple Concerto, the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor and Double Concerto in D minor, the Mozart Violin Concertos in A major and D major, the Sinfonia Concertante as well as Violin Concertos by Sibelius and Tchaikovsky, much of which was recorded live for radio broadcasts and/or CD releases.
Being passionate about chamber music, Mr. Steude also has served since 2002 as concertmaster of the Wiener Virtuosen, a chamber music ensemble comprised of members of the Wiener Philharmoniker. Later that year he founded the Steude Quartet, their performances of which have attracted much attention at the Viennese Music Association regular subscription concerts and during their regular tours throughout Europe and Japan.
Volkhard Steude performs on a 1718 Antonius Stradivarius (formerly owned by Viotti and Rose), which is on loan from the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (the central bank of the Republic of Austria).
In 2016, the Hiroshima Symphony Orchestra in Japan conferred the honorary title of Music Partner of HSO upon Volkhard Steude.
