Meet Jennifer Frautschi
Two-time GRAMMY nominee and Avery Fisher career grant recipient Jennifer Frautschi has garnered worldwide acclaim as a deeply expressive and musically adventurous violinist with impeccable technique and a wide-ranging repertoire. Equally, at home in the classic and contemporary repertoire, her recent seasons have featured innumerable performances and recordings of works ranging from Robert Schumann and Lili Boulanger to Barbara White and Arnold Schoenberg. She has also had the privilege of premiering several new works composed for her by prominent composers of today. Critics have described her performances as ‘electrifying,’ ‘riveting’ and ‘mesmerizing’ and lauded her ‘staggering energy and finesse’ and ‘fierce expression.’ After a recent performance of the Brahms Violin Concerto, Cleveland Classical wrote: ’We witnessed the most magnificent performance by a guest soloist in recent memory. From the outset of the Brahms Concerto, she was a stunning presence, her playing a breathtaking conflation of grace and grit, and at times downright ferocious.’
