Violinist Daniel Auner (photo by Nancy Horowitz) was born in 1987 in Vienna, where he studied at the University of Music, and later with Igor Ozim at the Mozarteum in Salzburg. Master classes with Friedemann Eichhorn, Midori Goto, and Rainer Kussmaul have supplemented his training. He is the winner of several national and international violin competitions, among them the Johannes Brahms International Competition in 2007 and Violin in Dresden in 2008. In addition to his appearances as a soloist, chamber music has become an important aspect of his artistic work. Daniel Auner performs with a permanent ensemble, the Vienna Mozart-Trio, and is often invited to play in international chamber music festivals such as the Moritzburg Festival or the Schwäbischer Frühling. Tours as a soloist or chamber musician have taken him to the UK, Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Hungary, France, and many countries in south-east Asia. Daniel Auner plays a violin that was built in 1709 by Hieronymus Amati and Johann Christoph Leidolff in Vienna.
Robin Green is a conductor, piano accompanist, chamber musician, and orchestral pianist. He is currently enjoying a music fellowship at London's Royal College of Music. He attended masterclasses with Vladimir Ashkenazy, Ivry Gitlis, Ferenc Rados, Dénes Varjon, Imre Rohmann, and Rainer Schmidt. Together with the pianist Antoine Françoise, he performs as the Françoise-Green piano duo, with regular concerts throughout Europe. As a chamber musician, he has collaborated with Gordan Nikolitch, Mayumi Seiler, Daniel Auner, the Rambert Dance Company, and the Mercury Quartet.
