Short Biography
Munich-born violinist Viviane Hagner, highly praised for her highly intelligent musicality, is in high demand worldwide as an orchestral soloist, recitalist and chamber music collaborator.
Since her international debut at the age of twelve, Hagner has become known for her intelligent interpretations and gorgeous, substantive sound. She has appeared with the Berlin Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Leipzig Gewandhaus and the Munich Philharmonic, among others.

Hagner's impressive 2019-2020 season takes her across Europe and North America, including Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in D minor with the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben in Hamburg, Berg's Violin Concerto with the Seoul Philharmonic and conductor Markus Stenz, and Unsuk Chin's Violin Concerto with Vancouver Symphony led by Otto Tausk. In February, Hagner embarks on a tour of Italy with the Camerata Salzburg, where she will perform Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5 and Schubert's Rondo in A major in such major concert halls as the Teatro di San Carlo in Naples and the Teatro Communale di Modena.  As a chamber musician, Hagner appears this season at the Lammermuir Festival and Villa Music as well as in recital with Nicole Hagner in Winnenden.

Viviane Hagner ardently promotes and performs new, undiscovered music. She has performed works by Sofia Gubaidulina, Karl Amadeus Hartmann and Witold Lutoslawski. In 2002, she gave the world premiere of Unsuk Chin's violin concerto with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and Kent Nagano. Recently, Hagner gave the Asian premiere of Anders Hillborg's Second Violin Concerto with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra.
