Masterclass Clarinet Sebastian Manz

Since Sebastian Manz won the International ARD Music Competition in 2008, he has been one of the most sought-after clarinet soloists and chamber musicians of his generation. Today, the Hanover-born musician gives concerts worldwide and is also principal clarinettist of the SWR Symphony Orchestra.

Sebastian Manz demonstrates his enthusiasm for arranging and composing time and again in concerts as well as in his discography, which has received numerous prizes. He has also convinced the jury of the ECHO three times and received the ECHO Klassik, as well as the OPUS Classic Award in October 2020. In September 2020, Sebastian Manz released his recording of the clarinet concerts of Magnus Lindberg and Carl Nielsen, which has been received warmly by both the public and the press.
