Karl Stobbe has made a name for himself as one of Canada’s most accomplished and diverse violinists. In addition to appearing frequently as a concertmaster in Canada and the United States, Karl regularly performs concerti, recitals, and chamber music, where his concerts have been called “a clinic in the art of violin playing” (Winnipeg Free Press, 2013). He has performed in Carnegie Hall, Jordan Hall, Segerstrom Hall, Roy Thompson Hall, the Orpheum Theatre and many other important concert venues in North America. In recital, Karl has performed of all of the Bach Unaccompanied Violin Sonatas and Partitas, all six Ysaÿe Unaccompanied Violin Sonatas, and will complete performances of all 16 Beethoven String Quartets in the next year.
