Linus Roth

Linus Roth, who already received the ECHO KLASSIK Award as "Best Newcomer" of 2006 for his début CD on the label EMI, has received his second ECHO award in 2017 for a recording of the violin concertos by Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky with the London Symphony Orchestra under Thomas Sanderling.

Linus Roth has made a name for himself internationally not just with standard repertoire, but also with his discovery or rediscovery of works that have undeservedly fallen into oblivion. He has devoted special attention to the works of Mieczysław Weinberg, both in concerts and the recording studio, being the first violinist to have recorded this composer´s complete OEuvre on CD. Making Mieczysław Weinberg’s works known to a wider audience is also the aim of the International Weinberg Society, which Linus Roth founded in 2015.

Linus Roth attended the preparatory class of Prof. Nicolas Chumachenco at the Musikhochschule in Freiburg, Germany, before going on to study with Prof. Zakhar Bron. Subsequently, he pursued his studies for several years with Prof. Ana Chumachenco. While studying, he held a scholarship from the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation

In October 2012, Linus Roth was appointed professor for violin at the Leopold-Mozart-Zentrum at Augsburg University and is also the artistic director of the 10th Leopold Mozart International Violin Competition, which will take place in Augsburg in 2019. In addition, Linus Roth is the artistic director of the international festival Ibiza Concerts, which he himself founded, and from 2020 on of the music festival Schwäbischer Frühling in Ochsenhausen in Germany.

Linus Roth plays on the Stradivarius violin ‘Dancla’ from 1703 – a kind loan from the music foundation of the L-Bank Baden-Württemberg.
