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 advantage and the tonal characteristics of both instrument at the first attempt to implement and use.

 

Born in Berlin, Fabian Boreck got his first cello lessons at the age of 5.
He studied at the "Academy of Music Hanns Eisler Berlin" with Prof. Kleif Carnarius, Principal Cellist of the Orchestra of the Komische Oper Berlin. Fabian Boreck's interest in Early Music led him to conclude his studies with Prof. Jan Freiheit, First Cellist of the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, 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 other 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 and Anton Steck; further he worked together with, for example, Jörg Halubek, Wolfgang Katschner, Alexis Kossenko, Riccardo Minasi, Hille Perl, Luca Pianca and Ludger Rémy. Engagements led him through Europe and to Asia.

 

In addition to his work on the cello, his intensive involvement with the subject of "sheet music editions" and its scientific side is another long-standing passion. Collaborations in this context led to Edition Walhall and to his becoming a partner of 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)"].

As an audiophile music listener, he is also enthusiastic about "high-quality" sound be it from the technical side (recording and playback technology) or on the acoustic/instrumental level. It is important to Fabian Boreck himself, with his listening habits and the resulting experience, to be able to give his opinion from the point of view of a 'practical' musician, e.g. violin makers or acousticians.

 

Fabian Boreck is the assistant 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.


In his free time he travels with pleasure in nature and take photographs of the German landscapes in the analogue medium format.
