Iskandar Widjaja is considered one of the most interesting violinists of the younger generation. The “complexity of his style, his musical imagination with the most varied sonic nuances and facets, as well as his flawless technique and great charisma” [Maestro C. Eschenbach] are praised by colleagues and the media alike. His extremely wide-ranging repertoire is especially focused on the works of Johann Sebastian Bach. In his second homeland of Indonesia, he is perceived like a “pop” phenomenon; his medial presence already resulted there in a “trending topic” status (most frequently named term) on twitter©. Highlights of the current season are his debuts with some of Germanys top Orchestras: the Konzerthausorchestra Berlin, the Deutsche Symphonieorchester Berlin and recordings for a new album with works by Robert Schumann in collaboration with Maestro Christoph Eschenbach as a pianist and conductor.
