The hard-working Russian-American violinist Philippe Quint has moved to the heat-seeking Coumbia roster.

He will be managed by Stefana Atlas and Martin Wittenberg.

The blue jacket’s new as well. Barely two hours up on social media.


  • Jeffrey Biegel says:

    Good luck, Philippe! Following all the wonderful things you are doing in music! Bravo!

  • Bruce says:

    He’s a fantastic player. I hope they can do more for him.

  • Steve says:

    Philippe is a wonderful soloist. Let’s hope Columbia can get Philippe engagements with some of the major orchestras around the world which so far have eluded him.

  • Larry W says:

    Quint has produced some of the most beautiful violin sounds ever recorded. Hopefully, this change will bring more recognition. It is well deserved.

  • A Pianist says:

    Quint is a nice shiny technique with absolutely no musical depth whatsoever. Still, I’d turn up to hear him play Korngold or something that suits him.

    • YB says:

      Your opinion of Phillipe could have been considered valid, had you not decided to mention Korngold in a derogatory insinuation… It’s as if you would say Spinoza is too simplistic. Have a listen to his Violin Sonata (Op 6!). I dare you to try and harmonically analyze even one phrase
