Federico Agostini is a violinist renowned as a soloist, chamber musician, and teacher.

After early training with his grandfather, he studied violin at his hometown’s conservatory of music in Trieste, Italy, then in Venice, and later at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena, where he earned the Artist Diploma in Violin. Salvatore Accardo and Franco Gulli were among his teachers.

Agostini made his debut as a soloist at the age of 16, playing Mozart under the baton of the late Carlo Zecchi. Ever since, he has performed throughout the world as a recitalist, soloist with orchestra, and as concertmaster of the legendary Italian ensemble I Musici.

He has appeared in various international music festivals in Europe, the United States, and Japan and has performed chamber music with many distinguished artists, including Bruno Giuranna, Jaime Laredo, Joseph Silverstein, and Janos Starker as well as with members of the American, Emerson, Fine Arts, Tokyo, and Guarneri quartets.
