ROLF SCHULTE

The violinist Rolf Schulte was born in Germany and started playing the violin at the age of five under his father’s tutelage. He later studied with Kurt Schäffer at the Robert Schumann Conservatory in Düsseldorf, attended Yehudi Menuhin’s summer course in Gstaad, Switzerland, and studied with Franco Gulli at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena, before moving to the United States to study with Ivan Galamian at The Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia.  He made his orchestral début with the Philharmonia Hungarica in Cologne at the age of fourteen, playing Mendelssohn’s Concerto, and he has since performed with orchestras throughout Europe. He has given the premières of new concertos and other works and made a series of important recordings, including Schoenberg’s Violin Concerto. He performed the complete violin works of Igor Stravinsky at the Berlin Festwochen, and the cycle of ten Beethoven sonatas at various places.  From 1999 to 2001 he fulfilled a residency that included annual recitals at Harvard University. He is an alumnus of Young Concert Artists.  He plays a 1780 instrument by Lorenzo Storioni.
