NEW TO YOUTUBE | VC Artist William Hagen Performs Stravinsky Suite Italienne I. Introduzione


Made by JBP Films with audio engineer Philipp Reif, the music video was recorded at Teldex Studios in Berlin, Germany.

Hagen and Smit's album, "Danse Russe" was released in 2020 to much praise. The album features Stravinsky's Suite Italienne, Divertimento, Chanson Russe, and Danse Russe — coupled with Prokofiev's 2nd Violin Sonata in D Major, Jascha Heifetz' arrangement of Prokofiev's March from 'L'amour des Trois Oranges, and Nathan Milstein's arrangement of Prokofiev's Tales of an Old Grandmother.

"It's a very high-energy, colorful album, all Stravinsky and Prokofiev," Hagen told The Violin Channel. "We had a blast recording it and we hope people enjoy it!"


An international soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician, VC Artist William Hagen made his debut last season with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at the Ravinia Festival and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe at the Rheingau Music Festival.

A graduate of The Juilliard School, The Colburn School, and The Kronberg Academy, he studied with Itzhak Perlman, Robert Lipsett, and Christian Tetzlaff. William is also a former major prize winner at the Fritz Kreisler and Queen Elisabeth International Violin Competitions.

His upcoming projects include recording and filming Ysaÿe Sonata for Solo Violin No. 5 at the Tippet Rise Arts Center. Additionally, he will be giving a recital and teaching at the Sounding Point Academy — which was founded by Robert Lipsett and Fabiola Kim to nurture the next generation of soloists, chamber musicians, orchestral musicians, and pedagogies.

The program will take place at The Colburn School in Los Angeles, California, from June 6 to 18, 2022.

"I go way back with everyone there, so I'm excited for Sounding Point on both a musical and personal level," Hagen told The Violin Channel."It's going to be a kind of homecoming for me."
