Born in Berlin, Fabian Boreck studied cello playing at the Academy of Music Hanns Eisler Berlin as well as the baroque cello at the University of the Arts Berlin with a Master's Degree.

After earlier projects as principal cellist of the Berlin State Youth Orchestra, 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.


His intensive study of performance practice, musicology of the 16th to 18th centuries, the production of detailed urtext editions of sheet music and the occupation with city views and maps of this time already began in his school days; on the baroque cello he received further important impulses from renowned musicians from the Berlin and Cologne region. Over the years he has worked with artists such as Howard Arman, Reinhard Goebel, Jörg Halubek, Joachim Held, Wolfgang Katschner, Alexis Kossenko, Riccardo Minasi, Hille Perl, Luca Pianca, Ludger Rémy and Veronika Skuplik. As a guest he followed invitations to ensembles such as Berliner Barock Solisten, Les Amis de Philippe, Altera pars, Thüringer Bach Collegium, Chursächsische Capelle Leipzig and others.


Due to his interest in audiophile music listening, film music and sound engineering Fabian Boreck is also asked by composers for recordings. His decades-long passion for improvisation makes him a sought-after artist in this field, hence he has worked with musicians and producers from Germany, Great Britain, France, Italy, the Netherlands, the USA and Australia. He is gradually publishing his solo improvisations as high-quality sheet music editions, which can be downloaded here at →Media.


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


In his spare time, he enjoys taking analogue and digital photographs of Germany's landscapes. → To photography
