When Nicolas Altstaedt curated UKARIA 24 in 2018, the hall hummed with an intense energy. His musical flexibility and charisma was palpable, ‘making a complex and intelligent program not just satisfying, but utterly compelling’ (Limelight).

In 2012, Nicolas was chosen by Gidon Kremer to become his successor as Artistic Director of the Lockenhaus Chamber Music Festival. Founded by Kremer in 1981, Lockenhaus gives creative freedom to world-class artists, and has been the source of much inspiration to UKARIA. We are thrilled to have Nicolas back again for his only solo recital on this Australian tour.

‘As one would expect of an international soloist of his stature, Altstaedt has technique to burn, near perfect intonation, superb control of extreme registers and harmonics, and is physically at ease with his instrument… Such was the purity and warmth of his tone, and so impeccable his rhythmic nuance, that one hung on every note as if they were the words of a master storyteller.’
The Australian
