Two-time Grammy nominee and Avery Fisher career grant recipient Jennifer Frautschi appears as soloist this season with multiple orchestras across the United States and as chamber musician at Boston Chamber Music Society, Caramoor, Chamber Music Charleston, and the Middlebury Performing Arts Series. Recent seasons featured performances with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and Tucson Symphony; return engagements with the Alabama, Arkansas, Belo Horizonte, Chattanooga, and Phoenix Symphonies and the Rhode Island Philharmonic; and chamber music appearances at the Library of Congress, Duke University, Chamber Music Northwest, Ojai Music Festival, and the Santa Fe, Lake Champlain, La Jolla, Moab, Bridgehampton, and Salt Bay Chamber Music Festivals.

Her discography includes the Stravinsky Violin Concerto with the Philharmonia Orchestra, and two Grammy-nominated recordings of Schoenberg’s Concerto for String Quartet and Orchestra and Schoenberg’s Third String Quartet. Recent releases include a recording of Romantic Horn Trios with hornist Eric Ruske and pianist Stephen Prutsman, and the Stravinsky Duo Concertant with pianist Jeremy Denk. In the last two years she has released two discs on Albany: the first devoted to the Schumann sonatas; the second an exploration of recent additions to the violin and piano repertoire by American composers.

Born in Pasadena, California, Ms. Frautschi was a student of Robert Lipsett at the Colburn School. She also attended Harvard, New England Conservatory, and Juilliard, where she studied with Robert Mann.
