RSMI Master Class: Christoph Richter at Ravinia Festival

Described in The Times as ‘searching, searing and sublime,’ cellist Christoph Richter performs as soloist and chamber musician throughout the world, with musicians such as András Schiff, Miriam Fried, Isabelle Faust, Menahem Pressler, Midori and many others, at festivals including the Salzburg Festival and Marlboro Festival in the US, and with composers such as Heinz Holliger and György Kurtág.  After his studies with André Navarra and Pierre Fournier he won prizes at international competitions which led to concerto appearances with many leading orchestras.  His strong interest in contemporary music has led him to work with composers such as Penderecki, Kurtág, Henze, Lachenmann, Holliger, Reimann and Widmann.  He has performed the complete works for cello of Brahms and Webern (2008), Beethoven (2009 & 2015), Mendelssohn (2010), Bach (2013) and Schumann (2017) in London.  Amongst his recordings are works by Schumann and Holliger for ECM, Klengel concertos for cpo, Mozart Divertimento for Naxos and the Brahms Sextet op.36 for Harmonia Mundi, which received the Diapason D’Or in 2014.
