Violist Paul Neubauer’s exceptional musicality and effortless playing led the New York Times to call him “a master musician.” In 2018 he made his Chicago Symphony debut with conductor Riccardo Muti and his Mariinsky Orchestra debut with conductor Valery Gergiev. Neubauer is the artistic director of the Mostly Music series in New Jersey and is on the faculty of The Juilliard School and the Mannes School of Music.
