Edson Scheid has been praised for his “polished playing” (The Strad) and for being a “virtuoso violinist” (The Boston Globe). His performance of Strauss’s song Morgen at Carnegie Hall alongside Joyce DiDonato and Il Pomo d'Oro was described as follows: “The concertmaster, Edson Scheid, proved a worthy foil as violin soloist” (The New York Times). A native of Brazil, Edson Scheid is based in New York City. He performs with many ensembles in the United States, and frequently tours in Europe, Asia, North and South America with such ensembles as Les Arts Florissants and Il Pomo d’Oro. His two recent album releases, “Paganini 24 Caprices” (Naxos) and “On Paganini’s Trail… H. W. Ernst and more” (Centaur), have been critically acclaimed. He holds degrees from the Universität Mozarteum Salzburg, the Yale School of Music (recipient of the Broadus Erle Prize) and the Juilliard School (recipient of a Kovner Fellowship).
