’Augustin Hadelich is truly a once in a generation violinist as well as a wonderful, warm-hearted personality,’ said managing director Karen McDonald. ’We are incredibly happy to be expanding and deepening our collaboration with him, closely partnering together for the long term. Welcome, Augustin!’

’When I first started working with KD Schmid in 2010, it started as a local representation at a time when most of my concert activity and success had been in North America,’ said Hadelich. ’The collaboration blossomed into a trusted and successful partnership over the years; it is in many ways thanks to their support, advice and work ethic that I now feel equally musically at home in both North America and Europe.
