About Steven Moeckel:
Virtuoso violinist Steven Moeckel’s “brilliance, expression, energy and passion” have earned him acclaim throughout Europe, South America and the U.S. As both soloist and concert artist, he has captivated audiences with his musicianship, rich sound, and technical prowess. Moeckel has performed as violinist of the Makart Trio Salzburg with Erika Frieser and Dana Micacoi, and as first violinist of the Auraeus Quartet in concerts throughout Europe. His notable U.S. appearances include chamber music performances with Leon Fleisher and Menachem Pressler at Chicago’s Ravinia Festival and concerto appearances in repertoire ranging from the Brahms Double Concerto with cellist Andres Diaz to the dazzling Red Violin Concerto of John Corigliano.
The German born Moeckel’s versatility dates from an early age when he began performing first as a violinist in the United States, and then from the age of eleven, as principal soprano soloist of the renowned Vienna Boys Choir. Resuming his violin studies in his teens, he graduated with honors at the age of nineteen from the Mozarteum in Salzburg and immediately assumed the position of Co-Concertmaster of Germany’s Ulm Philharmonic, where he remained for three seasons. After returning to America for further study, he first became Concertmaster of the Tucson (Arizona) Symphony Orchestra and then assumed the same position with the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra. At home in styles from classical to jazz, Steven Moeckel enjoys a stimulating career as concertmaster, concerto soloist and recitalist. His principal teachers include Helmut Zehetmair, Leonidas Kavakos and the distinguished American violinist Miriam Fried.
