Maximilian Krome


Maximilian Krome has played the clarinet with The Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie Bremen since April 2014. He was born in Höxter, North Rhine-Westphalia in 1988 and studied with Prof. Martin Spangenberg at The Liszt School of Music in Weimar, where he gained an Artistic Diploma in June 2012. During this time he had a scholarship from the German National Academic Foundation.

He is a multiple prizewinner in national competitions as well as at the Tunbridge Wells International Young Concert Artists Competition in England. As a scholar of the Jürgen Ponto Foundation and the German Foundation for Musical Life, he played solo engagements at the opening of the Schwetzingen Mozart Festival, the Essen Philharmonic, the Margravial Opera House of Bayreuth and in Switzerland.

His concert activities focus on performances with various chamber music ensembles, with appearances, for example, at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, the international music festival The Next Generation at the Harenberg-Center Dortmund, the Laeiszhalle Hamburg, the Cologne Philharmonic and at the invitation of the Academy of St Martin-In-The-Fields in London.

From 2012-2014, Maximilian Krome was Academist of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra in Munich.

Today, he regularly plays as a guest with the Chamber Academy Potsdam, the Camerata Bern and the Frankfurt Opera and Museum Orchestra.

And when he doesn’t have music in his ears, Maximilian Krome likes to experiment in his own kitchen and draw his inspiration from the foreign cuisines he has got to know on concert tours. Sometimes he is driven into the great outdoors – often with a good book under his arm.
