Antje Weithaas

Consistently Exemplary – the violinist Antje Weithaas’ 2016/17 Season

For many years, Antje Weithaas has impressed us “with her incredible technique and an unparalleled musical superiority and understanding”, according to the Berliner Zeitung two years ago. She naturally creates music “from the deepest core” and is always exemplary.

In the 2016/17 season, the Professor of the Berlin College will complete both of her two already celebrated CD projects. For her 50th Birthday the virtuoso will be giving a concert at the Berlin Concert Hall with the Camerata Bern, with herself conducting, where the programme will include a first performance of a Cyrill Schürch piece, among others. Further highlights of this passionate artist’s anniversary year are a tour of Norway with the ensemble in January 2017, as well as numerous chamber concerts, including a performance from a piano trio.

CD release: Antje Weithaas concludes complete recording of all works for violin and orchestra by Max Bruch

“I can’t listen to this concerto any more. Could it be that I have written only this one concerto?” Bruch complained about his Violin Concerto No. 1. And this work is indeed by far Bruch’s most popular. The violinist Antje Weithaas has taken it upon herself to make his other works for violin and orchestra better known as well, and this third CDEntwürfe cpo-Cover 08-2016_cover.indd of the series completes the challenge. In addition to Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 3, Antje Weithaas has recorded on this Vol. III his Romanze op. 42 as well as the Konzertstück in F Minor op. 48.
