The Vienna Symphony has named Dalibor Karvay as first concertmaster, replacing Jan Pospichal who went into retirement last month.

Karvay, 34, is a Slovak who studied with Boris Kuschnir, winning various competitions, and played with Slava Rostropovich for Prince Charles. He’s a professor at Vienna’s private music university and lives with his wife in Bratislava.
