Daniel Röhn


About Daniel


“X-Factor” headlined a review in Süddeutsche Zeitung, one of Germany’s leading newspapers, after a solo concert in Munich played by Daniel Röhn, while The Strad (London) stated “he is a sensational player”. 

Widely acclaimed as one of the leading violinists today, Daniel Röhn comes from a remarkable lineage of violinists: both his grandfather Erich Röhn and his father Andreas Röhn played an active part in shaping the unique German orchestral landscape as renowned concertmasters of the Berlin Philharmonic’s Furtwängler era, and the postwar Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. Daniel’s own playing is rooted in these stylistic traditions and he has earned praise from critics and audiences for his evocation of the violin’s ‘golden age’ of by-gone times.


Röhn's recent debut with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Simone Young for the 2021 season-opening performances of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto was met with shining reviews in the Sydney Morning Herald (“Polish and poise”), The Australian (“Focused clarity”), and Limelight (“Depth of feeling and gracious charm”). Recent and upcoming highlights include performances with the London Philharmonic, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Malmö Symphony Orchestra, Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Sinfonia Rotterdam, Cape Town Philharmonic, Armenian State Symphony Orchestra, and Georgian Chamber Orchestra.


Röhn has appeared at Carnegie Hall New York, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Wigmore Hall and Southbank Center London, Vienna Konzerthaus, Lucerne Culture and Congress Centre, Cité de la Musique Paris, Megaron Athens, Konserthuset Stockholm, Bozart Brussels, and at all major venues in his native Germany, with conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Gustavo Dudamel, Lorin Maazel, Ion Marin, and Hannu Lintu. 


Chamber music partners include Augustin Hadelich, Kit Armstrong, Gautier Capuçon, Vilde Frang, Julia Fischer, Antoine Tamestit, and Lisa Batiashvili.


His award-winning discography includes not only standard repertoire, but projects such as “The Kreisler Story”, a masterful celebration of one of the violin’s most treasured virtuosos Fritz Kreisler, and “The Golden Violin - Music of the 20's,” Röhn’s homage to the culturally unparalleled period between the two world wars, which premiered with the London Philharmonic at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg. The Album presenting his new project “Daniel Röhn Alone” has just been recorded.


After receiving early musical training from his father, Röhn studied under Ana Chumachenco at the Munich University of Music and Performing Arts. A passionate teacher himself, and a former guest professor at the Hamburg University of Music, he is deeply devoted to passing on the German tradition of his artistic heritage to the next generation of violinists and violists in his chosen home country Australia.





"Everybody is different. In my experience, successful teaching is based on understanding that. I like to treat everyone as an individual and thus suggesting individual solutions, rather than imposing pre-factored ones on my students."
