Karl Stobbe is recognized as one of Canada’s most accomplished violinists.

His diverse career has included performances of all six Ysaÿe Sonatas for Solo Violin, all 16 Beethoven String Quartets, and all 10 Mahler Symphonies. Over the course of the pandemic, Karl has taken on a wonderful project, recording live all six of Bach’s Partitas and Sonatas for unaccompanied violin on his Youtube channel.
