Rodolfo Richter trained as a modern violinist with Klaus Wusthoff and Pinchas Zuckermann and studied composition with Hans Joachim Koellreutter and Pierre Boulez. He studied baroque violin with Monica Huggett at the Royal Academy of Music and has performed with most of Britain’s leading period ensembles.

Rodolfo was a prize-winner at the prestigious International Early Music Competition for Ensembles in Bruges (2000) and won first prize at the Antonio Vivaldi International Violin Competition (2001). Since then, he is often invited as a soloist and to lead and direct many orchestras, including Barokkanerne (Norway), B’Rrock (Belgium), Harmonia Universalis (Brazil), Academia Montis Regalis (Italy), Hannover Band, St. James Baroque, The English Concert, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Academy of Ancient Music.

He has recorded Vivaldi solo concertos for Opus 111, Bach and Telemann’s Triple Concertos for Channel Classics, Handel’s Trio Sonatas for Harmonia Mundi USA and the first recording of the complete sonatas by Erlebach for Linn Records, Erlebach VI Sonate (Linn CKD270).
