Praised by The New York Times for his “thrilling virtuosity,” violinist Curtis Macomber is recognized as one of the most versatile soloist/chamber musicians before the public today, equally at home in repertoire from Bach to Babbitt. Macomber has been recognized for many years as a leading advocate of the music of our time. He has performed in hundreds of premières of works by Elliott Carter, Mario Davidovsky, George Perle, Charles Wuorinen, and Steven Mackey, among others. From 1982 to 1993, he toured the United States and abroad as a member of the New World String Quartet. Macomber is violinist for the Da Capo Chamber Players, a founding member of the Apollo Trio, and violinist for Speculum Musicae.

His most recent recordings include a solo recording, Casting Ecstatic, on CRI, the complete Grieg Sonatas on Arabesque, and on Bridge the music of Steven Mackey, Interior Design, as well as the complete Brahms Sonatas. Macomber is a member of the chamber music faculty of The Juilliard School, where he earned B.M., M.M., and D.M.A. degrees as a student of Joseph Fuchs. He is also on the violin faculty of the Manhattan School of Music and has taught at the Tanglewood, Taos, and Yellow Barn Music Festivals.
