Germany

 

The young violinist was born in Germany in 2000, starting his violin studies at the Pflüger-Stiftung Freiburg. A year later, he received a scholarship from this institution. Although he has had many a great achievement, his first victory at the age of six in the regional violin competition „Youth makes Music” and the 1st and special prize at the Young Paganini Competition in Poland from 2015 stand out. From 2007, he was Latica Honda-Rosenberg’s student first at the Music University of Freiburg, then at the Julius –Stern-Institute of the University of Arts Berlin. In 2011, he was awarded the European „Hoffnungspreis“ of the European Culture Foundation „Pro Europa, as the youngest ever candidate. He currently plays a Petrus Guarnerius violin from 1730 lent to him by the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben Hamburg.
