Linus has made a name for himself internationally with both established repertoire and his (re)discovery of undeservedly obscure works, having devoted special attention to works by Mieczysław Weinberg. His recording of Weinberg’s complete works for violin and piano was followed by albums of Weinberg’s Violin Concerto in G minor and Concertino; both CDs were selected as ‘Editor’s Choice’ by Gramophone. Raising awareness of Weinberg’s works is also the aim of the International Weinberg Society, founded by Linus in 2015.
Linus studied with Professors Nicolas Chumachenco and Zakhar Bron before pursuing his studies with Professor Ana Chumachenco, one of his greatest influences, at the Zurich and Munich conservatories. During his studies he was a scholarship holder of the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation. In October 2012, Linus was appointed as professor of violin at the Leopold-Mozart-Zentrum.
