Shlomo Mintz is to join the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in Australia as its inaugural soloist-in residence. The Russian-born violinist and conductor will work with the ensemble during two extended periods in 2015, performing in the QSO’s main stage concert season, leading a chamber music performance with QSO musicians and presenting workshops, masterclasses and talks.

‘The announcement of world leading master violinist Shlomo Mintz as our inaugural soloist-in-residence is a signal to the world that the Queensland Symphony Orchestra has a global vision; a quest to grow our international family of musicians, and a commitment to have the world’s best play here in Queensland; and importantly also, to have the world’s best experience the depth and richness of talent that the Queensland Symphony Orchestra represents,’ said QSO chief executive officer Sophie Galaise.

Shlomo Mintz is already popular with Queensland audiences, having performed as soloist in QSO’s opening Maestro Concert on February 15 with Simone Young conducting.
