Christoph Sietzen

Percussionist Christoph Sietzen was a prizewinner at the prestigious ARD International Music Competition in 2014, and received the Pizzicato Supersonic Award for his first solo CD, released by GENUIN classics in 2017. Christoph has been praised by the media as an outstanding talent – a refreshingly natural musician notable for his technical mastery and powerful stage presence.

He has appeared at such major concert halls as Athenaeum Bucharest, the Berlin and Vienna Konzerthaus, Munich Herkulessaal, Philharmonie Luxembourg, Salzburg’s Grosses Festspielhaus and Suntory Hall in Tokyo.
