Martin Jantzen is equally at home as a performer on the violoncello, the viola da gamba and the rare arpeggione, which is reflected in his busy concert schedule and numerous international prizes and scholarships. After successfully completing his studies in Freiburg im Breisgau and Frankfurt am Main, he graduated with honors from the Schola Cantorum in Basel and passes on his knowledge to the next generation at the Tübingen Music School.
He performs on international stages and works with ensembles such as the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, Bachakademie Stuttgart, El Gran Teatro del Mundo, the viol consort Phantasm as well as Amaconsort, Flor Galante, Ensemble Bastion and Le Grand-Rien and is a member of the management team at the Musikfest Eichstätt.
His passion for chamber music is reflected in the successes of his ensembles: 1st prize with Amaconsort at the international “Van Wassenaer” competition in Utrecht in 2021, 1st prize with Flor Galante at the international “Berlin Bach Competition” in the same year and much more.
Martin was supported in his studies by various scholarships – the Kalliope Foundation, the GFF of the HfMDK-Frankfurt, the Sinfonima Mannheim and the DAAD. He studied with Prof. Jean-Guihen Queyras, Prof. Elena Cheah, Jan Ickert and others and worked with composers from his study environment as well as Helmut Lachenmann and Lee Santana.
