Sebastian Fritsch

Cello

Sebastian Fritsch, born in Stuttgart in 1996, has been studying cello with Professor Jean-Guihen Queyras at the University of Music Freiburg since 2014, where he was awarded a scholarship from the Helene Rosenberg Foundation. He also receives a scholarship from the International Academy of Music in Liechtenstein, and participates in the intensive music weeks held there.

The young cellist has gained further musical insights from working with musicians such as Jens Peter Maintz, Wen-Sinn Yang, Maria Kliegel and Lucas Fels. He also continues to work with Lisa Neßling, who has taught him for many years.

Sebastian Fritsch has been a finalist and won prizes in various national and international competitions. As a soloist he has already performed Haydn’s cello concertos, Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme, the Saint-Saëns cello concerto and the Dvorak cello concerto with orchestras including the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, under the baton of Matthias Foremny. He has also been invited to perform at the Cello Biënnale Amsterdam, the Salzburg Festival, at the opening of the Illertissen Music Festival “Junge Talente – Stars von Morgen” and at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival.

The young cellist met his chamber music partners Rosa Wember (violin) and Robert Neumann (piano) in the class for exceptionally gifted young musicians at the Stuttgart School of Music. Together with Rosa Wember, he founded the “Stuttgarter Kammerduo” in 2010, with which he has performed in several countries, including the USA, Italy and Germany. In 2015 the duo accompanied the Vienna Boys’ Choir on tour and were accepted into the Yehudi Menuhin Foundation’s “Live Music Now” scholarship programme.
