Sarah Christian

Sarah Christian’s wish is to convey the honest emotion and energy of classical music to her listeners. In her artistic life, she enjoys combining all influences, not having to compromise anything in her many roles as soloist, chamber musician, the Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie Bremen’s concert master or as Artistic Director of a chamber music series in her home town of Augsburg. Here she makes the highest demands on herself. Her focus, when studying scores, is always on the music itself, which she approaches with the greatest respect. Her most important teacher is Antje Weithaas, with whom she studied at the Hanns Eisler Music College in Berlin and whose assistant she later became. As professor, Sarah Christian supervises her own class at the Stuttgart College of Music and Performing Arts.

One of her greatest competition success is the ARD Music Competition 2017, at which she won 2nd Prize (no 1st prize was awarded). She also won the audience prize and the Munich Chamber Orchestra’s special prize. Sarah Christian has performed in many European countries, as well as in China, Japan, South America and The United States. As soloist, she has played with orchestras such as the Camerata Salzburg, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Auckland Philharmonia. She gave her debut at Carnegie Hall with the Bavarian State Orchestra in March 2018. Her Debut CD (GENUIN, 2017), featuring Prokofiev’s Sonata No. 1 in F minor Op. 80 and Schubert’s C Major Fantasy has been greatly praised by the press »Sarah Christian’s solo debut is simply fantastic! This violinist has proven to be an extremely sensitive interpreter and she is technically quite simply unimpeachable.« (klassik.com).

Violin

Konstanze Glander

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.
