As a soloist, orchestra concertmaster, chamber musician, and educator, violinist Reto Kuppel has been a prominent contemporary figure on the German musical scene. A winner of the International Château de Courcillon Violin Competition, he has performed throughout Europe, Asia and the US. For almost two decades Reto Kuppel has served as concertmaster of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. Kuppel is currently professor of violin at the Hochschule für Musik Nürnberg, Germany.
