Professor Wolfgang Boettcher

--Cancelled due to Covid 19--
Wolfgang Boettcher, born 30.01.1935, is now the doyen among the German cellists. As a soloist he has performed worldwide with many important orchestras and conductors. Special artistic impulses brought him the cooperation with Herbert von Karajan, Sergiu Celibidache, Yehudi Menuhin, Witold Lutoslawski and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. He played u.a. at the Wiener Festspiele and Berliner Festwochen, the Salzburg Festival, the Marais Paris Festival, the English Bach Festival, the Festspiele in Lockenhaus and Kuhmo. Concert tours took him to all European countries as well as to Japan, South America, East Asia and Israel. Numerous composers have written works for Boettcher, including Aribert Reimann, Giselher Klebe and Hans Vogt. Other composers such as György Ligeti, Henri Dutilleux and Witold Lutoslawski greatly appreciate and value Boettcher as interpreters of their works. His repertoire includes all major cello concertos that have been composed since Vivaldi. He gave up his position as principal cellist with the Berliner Philharmoniker in order to be able to devote himself entirely to his solo work, in addition to which chamber music plays an important role. In 1976 he also took over a professorship at the HdK Berlin, today's University of the Arts. He is a founding member of the Brandis Quartet and was artistic director of the Summer Music Festival Hitzacker from 1986-1992. Since 1988 he is a member of the Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts. Wolfgang Boettcher is a popular pedagogue at international courses in Europe as well as in Japan.
He delights with incomparable solo performances such as with Taurida International Symphony Orchestra St. Petersburg in April 2017.
