Prof. Wolfgang Redik
Wolfgang Redik was born in 1968 in Graz. He was taught by Rolf Iberer and Klaus Eichholz in his home town before going on to study at the Academy of Music in Vienna with Michael Schnitzler from where he graduated. Wolfgang Redik’s most important musical mentors include Isaac Stern, Norbert Brainin, Jaime Laredo and Claudio Abbado.
Wolfgang Redik has performed as a soloist with many major orchestras such as the Orchestre Philharmonique Belgique, the English Chamber Orchestra, the Camerata Salzburg, the Austro-Hungarian Haydn Philharmonic, the Orchestre Metropolitain de Montreal, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, and Recreation Graz. Concerts in Tokyo, Osaka, Milan, Montreal, Chicago and Geneva are worthy of mention and are important engagements in his concert diary as are performances in the Leipzig Gewandhaus, the Musikvereinssaal in Vienna, at the Bregenz Festival and in the Zürich Tonhalle.
Wolfgang Redik is also a dedicated chamber-music player. In 1988 he founded the Vienna Piano Trio with which he has played over the past twenty years in almost all the major music centres of Europe, North and South America, the Far East as well as in Australia and New Zealand. Many award-winning CD recordings as well as radio, television and video productions reflect his intensive work with this ensemble.
As a chamber music partner of Juri Bashmet, Aurèle Nicolet, Jörg Widmann and Bruno Canino he is also a frequent and welcome guest at music festivals such as the Schleswig-Holstein Festival, the St. Moritz Festival, the Heidelberger Spring and the Beethoven Days in Bonn.
Since 1994 Wolfgang Redik has been leader of the Austro-Hungarian Haydn Philharmonic Orchestra and since 2006 guest leader of the Camerata Salzburg. His regular work as leader in various European chamber orchestras has led to increasingly frequent engagements as the director of musical productions and concerts without a conductor.
From 1989 to 2007 Wolfgang Redik taught violin and chamber music at the University of Music in Graz / Oberschützen. He has been professor of chamber music at the University Mozarteum Salzburg in Salzburg since autumn 2007.
Wolfgang Redik plays a violin made by J. B. Guadagnini dating from 1772, which is made available to him by the Austrian National Bank.
