Prof. Stradner Agnes


Agnes Stradner was born in 1968 to a Viennese musical family - both her parents were pioneers in early music performance and in the research of historical instruments. At age five she began to play the violin and four years later was accepted for preparatory studies at The University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna. At age twelve she encountered the baroque violin - the instrument which, being strung with natural gut, has allowed Ms. Stradner to find her sound-ideal. One year later was her first solo performance with orchestra with the Concerto in G-major by J.Haydn. After studies in Vienna with Gerhard Schulz (Alban Berg Quartett) she continued her studies with Young Uck Kim (Beaux Arts Trio) and Ulf Wallin (Cherubini Quartett) in Detmold, Germany and with Eberhard Feltz in Berlin. At this time her focus was already on chamber music, performing with the Wiener Flötenquartett and Trio Lichtenthal. Ms. Stradner earned her teaching diploma in violin in 1992, her performance diploma in 1995, both with outstanding marks. Masterclasses with Sandor Vegh, Tibor Varga, Denes Zsigmondy, Mauricio Fuks, Igor Oistrach, Rony Rogoff, Lucy van Dael and Rachel Podger have given Agnes Stradner a broad knowledge of different violin traditions. Ms. Stradner has a long-standing collaboration with renowned period-instrument ensembles such as Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, Balthasar Neumann Ensemble, Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, Les Musiciens du Louvre. With these groups she has participated in extensive concert tours and CD/DVD productions under conductors such as René Jacobs, Ton Koopman, Alan Curtis, Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Marc Minkowski, with whom she recorded all of the symphonies by F. Schubert on period instruments. Together with her husband Rubén Dubrovsky, she is a founding member of the Bach Consort Wien with whom she regularly performs as soloist and concertmaster in venues such as the Musikverein, Theater an der Wien, Kammeroper, Osterklang Wien and other prestigious concert venues in Europe like Styriarte/Graz, Palais Esterhazy Eisenstadt, Brucknerhaus Linz, Feldkirch (A), Händelfestspiele/Halle, Schwetzingen (D), Winterthur (CH), Ancona (I),Via Stellae/Santiago de Compostela, Palau de la Musica Valencia Palau de la Musica Barcelona (E) and Estoril Festival (P). Her recent projects have included the sonatas with fortepiano by J.Haydn and W.A.Mozart, the baroque solo violin repertoire with recitals in Austria, Spain and Portugal as well as performances combining baroque chamber music with dance and poetry. Ms. Stradner has also been a devoted teacher for nearly three decades. Her duties include leading a class for baroque violin, viola and chamber music at the Musikschule Wien, holding workshops in historical performance practice and coaching various baroque chamber music ensembles. In addition she gives violin master classes in Austria and Argentina and works regularly with modern opera orchestras as a coach for baroque performance practice. Agnes Stradner plays a violin from 1699 by G.B.Grancino.
