Event description

Description

Kristian Winther was born in Canberra to pianist parents. He studied violin with Josette Esquedin-Morgan and John Harding, and conducting with John Curro, with whom he made his concerto debut at age fifteen, performing the violin concerto of Sibelius. As soloist he has appeared with the Sydney, Melbourne, Queensland and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestras, the Auckland Philharmonia, Melbourne Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria, and Orchestra Romantique. He has performed as Guest Concertmaster of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, as Guest Associate Concertmaster of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and the Western Australian and Adelaide Symphony Orchestras, and as leader/director of ACO2.

An avid chamber musician, Kristian was formerly violinist in the TinAlley String Quartet, winning first prize at the Banff International String Quartet Competition in 2007, which was followed by tours of the USA, Canada and Europe. He has also performed chamber music with Anthony Romaniuk, Daniel de Borah, Anne Sophie von Otter, Angela Hewitt, Richard Tognetti, Brett and Paul Dean, Hue Blanes and Joe Chindamo. A founding musician for the Play On series since 2016, Kristian has performed music from the 17th to the 21st centuries for sold out audiences under the age of 30 in an underground car park in Collingwood.

He has performed the world premiere of Olli Mustonen’s Sonata for Violin and Orchestra with the composer conducting the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, as well as the Australian premieres of works by Andriessen, Kurtag, Salonen, Rihm, Kelly-Marie Murphy, and numerous Australian composers. Kristian also gave the Australian premiere of John Adam’s concertante work for string quartet and orchestra Absolute Jest with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and the Australian and New Zealand premieres of Brett Dean’s violin concerto The Lost Art of Letter Writing. In 2018 Kristian joins the Australia Piano Quartet.
