Eduard Schmieder

"Eduard Schmieder is one of the outstanding teachers of the violin. I have the highest admiration for his work, his dedication, and his integrity."

-Lord Yehudi Menuhin

As violinist and conductor, Schmieder has performed in prestigious halls and has collaborated with great musicians. In 1996, Eduard Schmieder performed a recital in Genoa on Paganini�s famous Guarneri del Gesu �Il Cannone� violin which is only given for the performances to exceptional virtuoso violinists. On this rare occasion, it was a posthumous International Peace Prize ceremony given by the Italian government to Yitzhak Rabin.

Recipient of numerous awards, Violin Professor Schmieder has taught master classes in virtually every foremost conservatory and summer courses in the world, and represents the United States as a jury member at leading international competitions.

"Among (violin pedagogues) I consider to be of elite caliber I would, without hesitation, include the name of Eduard Schmieder. He is a born educator who possesses the rare ability to blend the finest precepts of modern Western violin pedagogy and musicianship with the virtuoso proclivities of the brilliant Soviet school. Equally important, he has intimate knowledge of and respect for the great violinistic traditions of the past, which further contributes to the extraordinary scope of his cognition."

-Henry Roth, Music Critic, The STRAD, Author of books "Great Violinists in Performance," "Violin Virtuosos, From Paganini to the 21st Century," and others.
