The dramatic and extrovert "Fire" symphony by Joseph Haydn very fittingly opens this year's Festival. Jens Peter Maintz, our artist in residence and "cellist casting-deluxe" according to rbb, will subsequently introduce himself.
In the last movement of Mozart's symphony, you will hear the famous "Mannheimer Rockets" rising.
Jens Peter Maintz enjoys an outstanding reputation as a versatile soloist, highly sought-after chamber musician, and committed and successful cello teacher.
He gathered several years of valuable orchestral experience as principal cello of the Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester in Berlin, and travelled the world as a member of the renowned Trio Fontenay. Since 2006, Jens Peter Maintz has been principal cello of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra. He has appeared as a soloist with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, Leipzig MDR Symphony Orchestra, Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra, Den Haag Residenzorchester and Tokyo Symphony Orchestra.
Since 2004, he has been a professor at Berlin University of the Arts, where he teaches an exceptionally successful cello class. Many of his students are prize winners in important international competitions, and some hold leading positions in major orchestras.
Since 2017, he has also been a professor at the Escuela Superior de Musica Reina Sofia in Madrid.
Jens Peter Maintz is in equally great demand as a chamber musician. He is a member of the prestigious “Spectrum Concerts Berlin” series. It has now been 25 years since he formed the cello duo “Cello Duello” with Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt. Together they perform at the world's most eminent festivals.
For his Sony Classical CD of solo works by Bach, Dutilleux and Kodaly, Jens Peter Maintz was presented with an ECHO-Klassik award.
In the season of 2018/19, Jens Peter Maintz joined Hamburger Camerata as artist in residence. He performed with this orchestra in Elbphilarmonie as a soloist, and led it in other concerts.
