Columbia Artists is thrilled to announce the general management of violinist, Philippe Quint.

One of the most versatile and imaginative artists on the concert stage today, multiple Grammy Award-nominated violinist Philippe Quint is internationally recognized for his unique approach to classical core repertoire, rediscovering neglected works, and championing contemporary composers through commissioning and premiering new works. BBC Music Magazine recently described him as “truly phenomenal.”

Highlights of Quint’s 2019-2020 season include return performances with the Bournemouth Symphony under the baton of Andrew Litton, North Carolina Symphony under Rune Bergmann, Bochumer Symphoniker led by Steven Sloane, Bilbao Symphony Orchestra with conductor Jose Miguel Perez-Sierra, and Louisiana Philharmonic led by Carlos Miguel Prieto. He makes debuts with the Baltimore Symphony led by Carolyn Kuan, Singapore Symphony under the direction of Andrew Litton, and the Thailand Philharmonic.

An American violinist of Russian heritage, Quint is in demand and appears regularly with major orchestras and conductors worldwide at venues ranging from the Gewandhaus in Leipzig to Carnegie Hall in New York, while making frequent guest appearances at prestigious festivals.

Quint’s discography is comprised of 18 award-winning releases. He most recently made his Warner Classics label debut with a CD titled Chaplin’s Smile, a compilation of 13 original arrangements of songs by Charlie Chaplin that received worldwide acclaim.
