Ernst Kovacic
Artistic director of Leo Festival

Vienna and its inspiring tension between tradition and modernity were the musical background in which Ernst Kovacic grew up and in which he has developed his perspective on form, sound and interpretation. Thanks to performances of J.S. Bach’s solo sonatas and Mozart’s violin concertos, as well as involvement in the field of new music, Kovacic quickly gained a high position among the violinists of his generation. Many composers (including E. Křenek, F. Cerha, G. Gruber, K. Schwertsik, and D. Bates) have composed their works specially for him. In the last concert seasons, together with Wiener Philharmoniker, London Sinfonietta and RSO Wien, he presented the pre- mieres of violin concertos, including by B. Furrer, D. Bates and F. Cerha, and in the 2008/2009 season, as part of the Wien Modern festival together with the Klangforum Wien he performed a new violin concerto by C. Gadenstätter.
