American classical music artist AMADÉUS LEOPOLD made his concert violinist debut to the standing ovation of Isaac Stern at age 12 in downtown Los Angeles, as the solo performer chosen to honor Stern at the 2000 Grammy Awards. An in-depth, immersive education with the eminent Itzhak Perlman followed at The Perlman Music Program and The Juilliard School throughout the ensuing decade, during which Leopold instituted his breakthrough performance study The Renaissance of Classical Music (2008-2013) in New York City.
“He has a particular vision of how he wants to present classical music, and I'm very happy with that," Perlman told The Seattle Times in 2012 ahead of Leopold's Seattle Symphony debut at Benaroya Hall. “He is an extremely talented violinist who is very, very individual, It’s very personal to him," he continued. “When an artist feels it that personally, the audience does, too.”
