Michael Frischenschlager


University of Music and Performing Arts (Vienna)

Soloist, chamber musician and violin pedagogue from Salzburg, Michael Frischenschlager is a descendant of a well-known family of musicians with longstanding traditions. He studied violin, conducting, and musicology at academies and universities in Salzburg, Cologne, Vienna and Rome. His violin teachers included Theodor Müller, André Gertler, Franz Samohyl and Yehudi Menuhin.

After several years of experience with major orchestras (Wiener Solisten, Vienna Philharmonic), Frischenschlager entered into a period of intensive concert activity as a soloist and chamber musician, performing in almost all European countries, and in North America and Asia.

In 1971, he began to teach, and is still teaching, at the University of Music and Performing Arts of Vienna, where he was appointed head of the string department in 1984, vice chancellor in 1989, and where he served as chancellor from 1992 to 1996. He is in demand the world over as a teacher for master classes, and has sat on juries for a number of renowned violin and chamber music competitions.

President of the international Fritz Kreisler Competition in Vienna since 1989, Frischenschlager founded the Prague-Vienna-Budapest Summer Academy in 1990, being its director for 14 years until his retirement in 2015.
