Violinist Linus Roth began studying music early in childhood, and became a student of Nicolas Chumachenco at the Music Academy of Freiburg at the age of 12. He pursued music studies in Lübeck, where he studied with Zakhar Bron, and later worked with Ana Chumachenco in Zürich and Munich. Roth was strongly influenced by Salvatore Accardo, Miriam Fried, and Josef Rissin, and a scholarship from Anne-Sophie Mutter's foundation enabled him to complete his education. Roth has performed as a concerto soloist with the Stuttgart State Opera Orchestra, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestra della Toscana, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Nice, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin. He has also performed with the Bruckner Orchester Linz, the Orquesta de Cordoba, the Bern Symphony Orchestra, the Cologne Chamber Orchestra, and the Württemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn, among several others. He has played chamber music with many artists, including Nicolas Altstaedt, Julius Berger, Gautier Capuçon, Kim Kashkashian, Albrecht Mayer, Nils Mönkemeyer, Jan Vogler, and frequent accompanist José Gallardo. Roth is the professor of violin at the Leopold-Mozart-Zentrum of the University of Augsburg. He has recorded for Challenge Classics, CPO, and EMI Classics.
