Biography

Violinist Daniel Röhn began his varied career at an early age. The son and grandson of two renowned concertmasters, Röhn began his studies at the Hochschule for Musik München at 14 with Ana Chumachenco. As a scholarship-holder in the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation and in the Stradivari society of Chicago, Daniel Röhn delights his audience in both solo programs and as a chamber musician with a magnetic stage presence, performing to rave reviews for his concerts at Wigmore hall, Laeiszhalle Hamburg and the Southbank Centre London, with September’s issue of the Strad Magazine praising his performances as “rendered in vivid colours, brilliantly placed and combining striking individual virtuosity with chamber like collegiality.”

After his recent birthday tribute to Fritz Kreisler at Carnegie Hall,
highlights of coming months include recitals at the Wigmore Hall
London, Konzerthaus Berlin, Laeiszhalle Hamburg and Konzerthuset
Stockholm. He will play 7 concerts at Festpiele MecklenburgVorpommern
with Vilde Frang and at the Lucerne Festival, Sibelius
Concerto performances in Berlin follow, as well as his Kreisler Story
disc release with Berlin Classics/EDEL on 12th August 2016.
In a dialogue with the audience Daniel Röhn evokes the golden
age of violin playing of the 1920s and 30s in his own programme
“The Kreisler Story”, seamlessly blending the art of communication
through music with a narrative about the music itself.
As an outstanding talent Röhn was nominated the violinist of 2005
from the Konserthuset Stockholm, winning the “Rising Star” Award
which has garnered him invitations from countless outstanding
addresses, including repeat invitations from, among others, the

His grandfather Erich Röhn was Furtwängler’s concertmaster of the
Berlin Philharmonic and his father Andreas Röhn led the Bavarian
Radio Symphony Orchestra for almost 30 years. His mother, Swedish
pianist Kerstin Hindart was Alfred Brendel’s protégée and repetiteur
in Vienna as well as accompanist to Nicolai Gedda and the
Björling Family.
He performs on a Joseph Rocca violin from 1840.
