About Friedemann Eichhorn, Violin

One of the most creative and versatile artists of his generation, German-born Friedemann Eichhorn’s artistic activities range from performing early Baroque music on period instruments to classical and contemporary works with renowned orchestras and chamber music partners. Among many other pieces, Eichhorn rediscovered and first recorded the complete violin concertos by French virtuoso Pierre Rode. On this recording he plays the Antonio Stradivari violin ‘Lady Jeanne’ from 1731 with the kind support of J & A Beare Ltd, London.

About the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie

The Deutsche Radio Philharmonie (DRP) is one of the largest radio symphony orchestras of the ARD, the German association of public service broadcasters. It plays a major role on the music scene in South West Germany, especially around its home sites in Saarbrücken and Kaiserslautern, as well as in nearby France and in Mannheim, Mainz and Karlsruhe. In addition to music from the Classical and Romantic eras, the DRP’s repertoire focuses on the discovery or rediscovery of composers such as French-German symphonist Gouvy, the charismatic Polish composer Paderewski or Clement, Romberg and Eybler, who were contemporaries of Ludwig van Beethoven. The DRP also attaches great importance to new and contemporary music.
