Edson Scheid has been praised for his “polished playing” (The Strad) and for being "both musically and technically one of the most assured and accomplished of today’s younger period violinists" (The Boston Musical Intelligencer). A native of Brazil, Edson has performed with such ensembles as Les Arts Florissants, Il Pomo d’Oro, the Trinity Baroque Orchestra, Juilliard415, the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, the Aston Magna Music Festival, Orchester Wiener Akademie, and the Aspen Festival Orchestra. Edson’s many performances of Paganini’s 24 Caprices, on both period and modern violins, have been received with enthusiasm around the world. He has performed the Caprices in cities in Europe, North and South America, and Asia, and has been featured live in-studio on In Tune from BBC Radio 3. Edson holds degrees from the Universität Mozarteum Salzburg, the Yale School of Music and the Juilliard School, where he was the recipient of a Kovner Fellowship.
