Janos Starker’s granddaughter is Cleveland’s new co-concertmaster

Franz Welser-Möst and the Cleveland Orchestra have announced the appointment of Alexandra Preucil as Assistant Concertmaster. Her mother is Janos Starker‘s daughter, Gwen. Her father, William, is … Cleveland’s concertmaster. Her uncle, Stephen Rose, is principal second violin. Neither was present at her audition. Alexandra has played in the orchestra for five years.

  1. Steve de Mena says:

    Headline says she is the new co-concertmaster. Body of story days she is the new Assistant Concertmaster. I believe the latter title is correct.

    Kinda cool being Assistant Concertmaster, presumably sitting right next to her Dad. He must be so proud of her.

    Congratulations Alexandra!

  2. Peter Otto, the Associate Concertmaster, will still be sitting next to her father. She’ll be most likely sitting behind him, though.
