Born in 1989 to a musical family on the outskirts of Berlin, Konstanze Glander began learning the violin at the age of 5. As well as being very musical in her youth, dance was also a strong influence and it was for this reason that, as far as her career aspirations were concerned, she was a ›late bloomer‹. It was eventually an opera production with the National Youth Orchestra which brought about the decisive change.
Konstanze Glander studied with Professor Axel Wilczok and Stefan Hempel at Rostock College of Music and Drama. For her final performance she played Mozart’s violin concerto with the North German Philharmonic of Rostock. She was also a member of the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra and dedicated herself during her studies to the music of the tango.
As a member of various ensembles, Konstanze Glander was able to amass a wealth of artistic experience and it was as an Academy Student at the Staatskapelle Berlin and Daniel Barenboim that she gained valuable insights into the behind-the-scenes world of opera, ballet and the concert hall. During her time with the English Baroque Soloists and the Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique in London, she was able to hone her Baroque and Classical technique. The direct collaboration with John Eliot Gardiner, who led the workshops and teaching sessions, was a unique experience.
Konstanze has been a permanent member of the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen since October 2018, where dance is still her greatest passion. When not performing, she loves walking in the countryside, good food and spending quality time with friends and family.
