Felix Eugen Thiemann

As a young student of the Julius-Stern-Institute of the Berlin University of the Arts Felix Eugen Thiemann was taught by Prof. Matias de Oliveira Pinto and awarded by the competition of the German Musical Instrument Fund with a cello (F. Gand à Paris 1826) on loan. He was awarded a scholarship from the Ad Infinitum Foundation by the Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Academy of Music and Theatre Leipzig.
The association Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now also accepted him into the circle of its scholarship holders. After his diploma studies with Prof. Peter Bruns, he continued his education with a master's degree under Prof. Peter Hörr, followed by chamber music studies in the master class of the Artemis Quartet at the University of the Arts in Berlin. He now plays on a cello by Daniel Josua König.

Felix has been the principal cellist for the Bundesjugenorchester, substitute for the Gewandhausorchester, as well as winning academy positions in the Berlin Konzerthaus Orchestra and the Radio Symphony Orchestra in Berlin. More recently he has been a regular guest of the Orchestra Regionale della Toscana in Florence, including as assistant principal cellist. He also played in the world premiere of the children's opera Der Grüffelo by Ivan Fischer in the Konzerthaus Berlin. With pianist Francesca Rambaldi he has performed at various chamber music festivals, such as San Giacomo Festival Bologna, Musica in Bianco e Nero, Sommerliche Musiktage Hitzacker, Kejia Share Music Base in Jingdezhen (China) and Journées du patrimoine in Cholet.
