Christoph Sietzen has been praised by the media as an outstanding talent – a refreshingly natural musician notable for his technical mastery and powerful stage presence. He gave his debut at Salzburg Festival aged 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. In the current season Christoph is featured as „Great Talent“ by Vienna’s Konzerthaus, where he will be performing regularly. He will also perform at the Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein, the Great Festival Hall Salzburg, the Romanian Atheneum Bucharest and the Philharmonie Luxembourg as well as a recital tour across several cities in Austria. Further highlights include appearances at the Grafenegg Festival with the Tonkünstlerorchester under Yukata Sado and at the Sound Unbound Festival at the Barbican London with the Academy of Ancient Music. He will also appear on shows of the Bavarian Broadcasting, the Deutschlandfunk and the ZDF.
