Born in Berlin, Fabian Boreck got his first cello lessons at the age of 5. He studied it 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 as well as founding member of the Youth Baroque Orchestra Bachs Erben, 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.


In his youth Fabian Boreck came to Early Music via the organ. His intensive study of performance practice, musicology of the 16th to 18th centuries, the production of detailed, beautiful-looking 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 and Ludger Rémy. 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.

Performances have taken him to renowned Early Music festivals.

In addition to solo activities, Fabian Boreck is an enthusiastic continuo player, with the convinced view that a qualitative bass-base is essential for the voices built above it.

In 2018, he launched the → Musica Temporalis [The Sound of Time] project.


Due to his interest in audiophile music listening, film music and sound engineering Fabian Boreck is also asked by composers for remote recording tasks as well as studio recordings. His decades-long passion for improvisation makes him a sought-after artist in this field. He has worked with musicians and producers 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 professional baroque cellist. He plays on a cello by Jean-Baptiste Salomon as well as on a baroque cello by Konrad Stoll.


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