Martin Funda (born 1985) is Professor of Chamber Music and Violin at the State University of Music and the Performing Arts Stuttgart (HMDK) as of winter semester 2018/2019.

Martin Funda combines tradition with modern relevance, consistently proving how stimulating a multi-faceted and varied career can be, and how it can bring about great musical flexibility, whether as a soloist, guest concertmaster, play-lead musician, artistic director or pedagogue. Chamber music remains, however, his core focus, primarily as leader of the Armida Quartett.

It is this form of music-making that he always draws inspiration from, in order to communicate effectively with other musicians and to establish the place of music in other settings. As a professor he sees it as a key priority to pass on to young musicians the necessary knowledge and skills required for a versatile musical career, and to support them on the path to becoming individual and self-reliant musicians.

Martin Funda is a chamber and orchestral musician, soloist and pedagogue. He achieved international acclaim as a founding member and leader of the Armida Quartett. After winning the Concours de Geneve in 2011, they were awarded 1st prize, the audience prize and six further special prizes at the 2012 ARD International Music Competition. This established the Armida Quartett as one of the most sought-after young quartets worldwide.
