The German violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann studied with Valery Gradov, Saschko Gawriloff and Herman Krebbers before going on to play with many of the world's major symphony orchestras and conductors. He has recorded all the major violin concertos for EMI Classics, and, apart from engagements with orchestras, also gives recitals. Since 1998 his regular partner has been the Italian pianist Enrico Pace. Other chamber music partners are Heinrich Schiff, Piotr Anderszewski and Christian Zacharias. Zimmermann plays a Stradivarius known as the Lady Inchiquin, which once belonged to Fritz Kreisler.
