David Radzynski: A 28-Year-Old Concert Master – A Blog for From the Grapevine

The soaring swell of strings, the mellow call of the French horn, the rhythmic thud of timpani; there is something about orchestral music that resonates deeply with audiences, whether it’s heard live in a concert hall or as the background score during a film screening. In each and every orchestra, a cast of individual virtuosos work in perfect harmony to produce a cohesive, synergistic sound. Yet despite the impressive collaborative nature of these musical ensembles, there is a clear hierarchy at play. There are first chairs or section principals, who act as the main voice or lead for their respective sections. There are assistant principals who play second fiddle. And finally there’s the most high-ranking title of them all – the leader. Or, as it’s known in the US, the concertmaster.

When From the Grapevine approached us to write about David Radzynski, the recently crowned 28-year-old concertmaster of the highly regarded Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra, we were delighted. As music lovers, we were excited to share the story of remarkably talented young man and his rapid rise to classical music stardom.

So that’s what we did. You can read our full blog on David Radzynski for From the Grapevine below.
