Eckhard Seifert was born in 1952 in Weyer, Upper Austria, and received his first violin instruction at the age of eight. In 1968 he continued his studies under Prof. Jaroslav Suchy in Salzburg at the Mozarteum before changing in 1969 to Prof. Franz Samohyl at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. Seifert auditioned successfully for the Vienna State Opera Orchestra and took up his duties as first violinist in 1973. In 1975 he advanced to section leader of the first violins.
Eckhard Seifert has further developed his artistic reputation as a former first violinist of the Seifert Quartet (1976-1980), as concertmaster of the Vienna String Soloists and,since 1980, as a member of the Musikverein Quartet (Küchl Quartet). Since 1990 he has also been a member of the Vienna Ring Ensemble. He performs regularly as soloist and chamber musician in Austria and abroad, and has contributed to many recordings, such as those of the complete Beethoven and Mozart quartets and many of the Haydn quartets.
Eckhard Seifert performs on a violin made by Antonio Stradivari in 1727 ("ex Halphen"), which is on loan to him from the Angelika Prokopp Foundation.
