Masterclass Cello Prof. Marie-Elisabeth Hecker
Anyone who sees Marie-Elisabeth Hecker live in concert could easily get the idea that she was born with her instrument in her arms. When playing the cello, she exudes an almost somnambulistic naturalness - and not only because she likes to play with her eyes closed: “heartbreakingly sad and somnambulistically beautiful”, as DIE ZEIT put it.
Her international breakthrough came with her sensational success at the Rostropovich Competition in Paris in 2005, where she won - for the first time in the history of the important cello competition - both the first prize and two special prizes. Since then, Marie-Elisabeth Hecker has been one of the most sought-after soloists and chamber musicians of the young generation.
Accompaniment: Kiyoko Wakamatsu & Yoko Kuwahara
