Eric Silberger, violin
Maestro Andrew Sewell

It is with great pleasure to introduce violin phenom Eric Silberger performing Paganini’s tour-de-force Violin Concerto No. 1. Silberger is a prize winner of the XIV International Tchaikovsky Competition and the Michael Hill International Violin Competition in 2011.

His performances have been described by critics as “spine-tingling…astonishing” (The Guardian), “dazzling virtuoso playing” (The Washington Post), and “impeccable level of playing, a wonderful musician” (Heather Kurzbauer, The Strad).
