Notes & Reviews:

David Frühwirth started his training at the Mozarteum in Salzburg with Paul Roczek, Jürgen Geise, and Rugiero Ricci. He continued his studies in Lübeck with the renowned pedagogue Zakhar Bron, where he graduated at only 20 years old. Pinchas Zukerman and Patinka Kopec invited him to New York for three years to work on additional postgraduate diplomas. It was there that he had the chance to work with eminent teachers of chamber music such as Jaime Laredo and Isidore.
