Stefan Latzko’s career path took him from the Bavarian State Youth Orchestra via the University of Music in Munich, Würzburg and Hanover, to a scholarship at the Juilliard School of Music in New York. He graduated with distinction and gave his concert recital at the Robert Schumann University in Düsseldorf under Prof. Rosa Fain.
Orchestra playing remains his great passion to this day. This was decisively shaped by his membership in the Young German Philharmonic. Subsequently, he was also a member of the Chamber Orchestra of the Young German Philharmonic. From here, in 1989, he came to the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie, which at that time still resided in Frankfurt.
In addition to playing in the orchestra, Stefan Latzko is a keen chamber musician, having founded his first string quartet during his student days. Today he also regularly performs as a soloist and passes on his experience teaching the violin at the University of the Arts Bremen and coaching the Bremen Youth Orchestra.
Stefan Latzko spends much of his spare time cycling and has already cycled across Europe. His next ambition is to explore New Zealand on two wheels.
