Henry Raudales

Henry Raudales was born in Guatemala and took his first violin lessons from his father Enrique Raudales at the age of four. Only three years later he made his début as solist in a Mendelssohn concert in North Carolina, which attracted the attention of Yehudi Menuhin, who hired a television crew and recommended him for a scholarship at his London music school. There followed further appearances, as well as advanced study in Antwerp and London.

He won several important last prizes and made solo appearances in the musical capitals of Europe, Asia and America. In 1992 a tour in conjunction with Nigel Kennedy took him to Belgium, France and Great Britain. His repertoire comprises over thirty-five large-scale solo concertos from the orchestral literature, from Bach to Korngold.

Henry Raudales, who has participated in a number of recordings featuring solo, chamber and orchestral music, served from 1989 until 1993 as first concert master of the Orchestra of the Vlaamse Opera in Antwerp/Ghent. Following this he held the same position with the Essen Philharmonic.

Since September 2001, he has been concert master of the Munchner Rundfunkorchester. Henry Raudales plays a Guadagnini violin built in 1787
