About

Named a Rising Star of the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO) for the 2017/18 season, percussionist 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 was a prizewinner at the prestigious ARD International Music Competition in 2014, and received the Pizzicato Supersonic Award for his first solo CD, released by GENUIN classics in 2017 and taking its name from a work composed for Sietzen by Emmanuel Séjourné: “Attraction”. Pizzicato magazine described it as “a stupendous solo performance in every respect”. Christoph Sietzen, a citizen of Luxembourg, was born in Salzburg, where he made his performing debut at the age of 12 at the Salzburg Festival. (...) Since 2014 he has held a teaching post at Vienna’s University for Music and the Performing Arts.
