Iskandar connects worlds. The son of arabic-dutch and chinese-indonesian parents grew up with high-caliber classical music and has performed as a soloist with internationally most renowned ensembles such as the Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester- and Konzerthaus Orchestra Berlin, the Munich, Warsaw and Shanghai Philharmonics, Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna, Hong Kong Sinfonietta a.o.
Simultaneously, he has developed a parallel showbiz career in east Asia, with regular TV appearances, commercial endorsement contracts, brand-ambassador duties and “trending topic” status on Twitter.
He entered the Berlin “Hanns Eisler” conservatoire as an extraordinary student at the age of eleven. Now he collaborates with the great names of music such as Zubin Mehta, Christoph Eschenbach, Rolando Villazón, David Foster, Itamar Golan and Fazil Say. He is also often to be seen at mass-media events like Miss World or Miss Earth, the Davis Cup, EXPO in Milan or the Fashion Week in Paris.
Iskandar is strongly committed to educational projects for children in the Asian Pacific region, typically in collaboration with UNICEF or WWF. Supported by KOMPAS Gramedia, Indonesia’s biggest media group, he has organized charity events to finance musical instruments and instruction for street children.
His personality and energy are aptly summed up by the string players’ house magazine The Strad : “Iskandar Widjaja, a true force of nature.”
He plays the “Stephens” 1690 Stradivari and an 1875 JB Vuillaume.
