Karl Stobbe


Karl Stobbe is recognized as one of Canada’s most accomplished and diverse violinists, noted
for his generous, rich sound, and long, poignant phrasing. As an orchestra director,
concertmaster, soloist, or chamber musician, he has been an audience favorite in small settings
and large venues. Avie Records’ recording of Karl performing Ysaÿe’s Solo Violin Sonatas was
nominated for a JUNO Award, and received worldwide attention, including London’s Sunday
Times who called Karl “a master soloist, recalling the golden age of violin playing… producing
a breathtaking range of tone colours.” He has performed in North America’s most famous
concert halls, including New York’s Carnegie Hall and Boston’s Jordan Hall, and has shared the
stage with some of the most important and eclectic violinists of our day, from James Ehnes to
Mark O’Connor.
