About

Christoph Sietzen has been praised by the media as an outstanding talent – a refreshingly natural musician noted for his technical mastery and powerful stage presence. He gave his debut at the Salzburg Festival at the age of 12 and was a prizewinner at the prestigious ARD International Music Competition in 2014. In 2018, he was awarded the ICMA (International Classical Music Awards) Young Artist Award and the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO) named him a Rising Star for the 2017/18 season. Furthermore, Christoph received an OPUS KLASSIK for Newcomer of the Year 2019. Christoph regularly performs at prestigious venues such as Vienna’s Konzerthaus and Musikverein, Salzburg's Great Festival Hall and Mozarteum, Romanian Atheneum in Bucharest, Philharmonie Luxembourg, London's Barbican Centre, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Berlin's Konzerthaus, Cologne's Philharmonie, Müpa Budapest, Gulbenkian Foundation Lisbon, Palau de la Música Barcelona, Stockholm Konserthuset, Bozar Brussels, Concertgebouw Amsterdam and Suntory Hall in Tokyo as well as at festivals like Salzburg or Grafenegg.
