Breaking: Vienna has new 1st Konzertmeisterin

Sophie Heinrich has won the audition for first concertmaster of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra.

She will take the seat on the retirement of Florian Zwiauer in May 2019.

‘It’s a dream comes true,’ says Heinrich. ‘I am looking forward to Vienna, to the exciting new job with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, and especially to playing music together with my new colleagues and working with Philippe Jordan and Andrés Orozco-Estrada.’

She is presently first concertmaster of the Komische Oper Berlin.
