About him

Fabian Boreck is at home on the 'modern' cello as well as on the baroque cello.

By playing parallel since his early youth, he understands the advantages and the tonal characteristics of both instruments at the first attempt to implement and use. His repertoire ranges from the first compositions for bass instrument resp. violoncello of the 16th/17th century to classical and romantic music as well as

contemporary music and improvisation.

Due to his activities in sheet music editing and sound recording Fabian Boreck covers an extensive musical field.




Born in Berlin, Fabian Boreck got his first cello lessons at the age of 5.
He was a pupil of the C.-Ph.-E.-Bach-Musikgymnasium Berlin and studied at the
Academy of Music Hanns Eisler Berlin with Prof. Kleif Carnarius. His interest in Early Music since his school days finally led him to conclude his studies with Prof. Jan Freiheit at the University of the Arts Berlin with a Master's Degree on the baroque cello.

In the past, master classes have taken him to Peter Bruns, Wolfgang Boettcher and Gustav Rivinius; with the baroque cello to Markus Möllenbeck and Antje Geusen, as well as to numerous events in the State Music Academy Saxony-Anhalt Michaelstein Monastery.

He was a permanent member of the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie (federal student orchestra Young German Philharmonic), substitute in the Konzerthausorchester Berlin and a member of the Orchestra Academy of the Staatskapelle Weimar.

After earlier own participations he took part at Jugend Musiziert (German contest "Youth makes Music") as a juror.


Today, Fabian Boreck is also a sought-after baroque cellist.
In the past he received important instrumental impulses by musicians such as Kristin von der Goltz, Dorothee Oberlinger, Anton Steck and members of the baroque orchestra Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin. Further he worked together with, e.g., Jörg Halubek, Joachim Held, Wolfgang Katschner, Alexis Kossenko, Riccardo Minasi, Hille Perl, Luca Pianca and Ludger Rémy.

Engagements led him through Europe and to Asia. In 2018 he launched the project Musica Temporalis [The Sound of "Time"].


In addition to his work on the cello, the intensive activity with sheet music editing and its scientific side is another long-standing passion. Direct results of this are the cooperation with Edition Walhall and the partnership with the Institut zur Erforschung und Erschließung der Alten Musik in Dresden (Musikschätze aus Dresden) e.V. [Institute for the Research and Development of Early Music in Dresden (Music Treasures from Dresden)].

Due to his interest in audiophile music listening, film music and sound engineering Fabian Boreck is also asked by composers for hi-res remote recording tasks. He has worked with artists from Germany, Great Britain, France, Italy, the Netherlands, the USA and Australia.


Fabian Boreck is the associate Principal Cellist of the Oldenburg State Orchestra (Germany), as well as a soloist and chamber musician. He plays a cello by Jean-Baptiste Salomon, Paris 1764, and a baroque cello by Konrad Stoll.
