Daniel Rowland

Daniel Rowland is known in international music circles as an interesting and communicative musician, full of surprises. In recent years he has performed violin concertos by such composers as Elgar, Korngold, Berg, Prokofiev and Ferneyhough, all the way from Norway to South Africa. His passion for chamber music has also taken Rowland's music-making to numerous international festivals. His musical collaborators include Ivry Gitlis, Heinz Holliger, Dawn Upshaw, Gilles Apap, Marcelo Nisinman, Willard White and Elvis Costello. Rowland is also first violin with the distinguished Brodsky Quartet, and performs as a duo with the pianist Natacha Kudritskaja and the guitarist Alberto Mesirca. He is a professor at the Royal College of Music in London and is guest leader of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. He is also founder and Artistic Director of the Stift International Music Festival, now in its 13th year.
