Anton Kontra was born and grew up in Hungary and trained by Ede Zathureczky in Budapest. He has won prizes at the Bach Competition in Leipsig and the Wienawski competition in Warsaw. He is one of the leading violin soloists in Scandivavia, and for a generation has functioned as a unique dynamo in Danish musical life - as the leader of the Kontra Quartet, as the leader of the Zealand Symphony Orchestra and as a soloist. Among his recordings is Per Nørgård’s Violin Concerto Helle Nacht. Besides his work in the Kontra Quartet, Anton Kontra is today leader of the Malmö Symphony Orchestra.
