CR Felix Broede


Jeremias Schwarzer has made a name for himself in both the early and contemporary music scenes through his enviable virtuosity and musicality.

In 2008 he took part in the world premiere of Salvatore Sciarrino’s 4 Adagi for recorder and orchestra with the Filarmonica della Scala under Daniel Harding at Milan’s La Scala to wide international acclaim. Since then, Jeremias Schwarzer has appeared at leading concert halls and venues around the world, including the Prinzregententheater Munich, Radialsystem V Berlin, Alte Oper Frankfurt, Muziekgebouw Amsterdam, Tokyo Opera City Hall, Harvard University and La Monnaie Brussels. As a soloist Jeremias Schwarzer has performed with the Bavarian Radio, South West German Radio and Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestras, the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, Bamberg Symphony, Frankfurter Opern- und Museumsorchester, Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and Münchener Kammerorchester, among others.

In collaboration with the concert designer Folkert Uhde, Jeremias Schwarzer developed the interdisciplinary projects "Sounds and Clouds" and "ALIF" at Radialsystem V Berlin from 2015 to 2017, which were realized in collaboration with the Kulturstiftung des Bundes and several European festivals. In addition, Jeremias Schwarzer is Professor of Recorder and Contemporary Music at the Nuremberg University of Music and has held residencies and given master classes and lectures in Europe, the US and Asia. His numerous CD releases include recordings for the labels Moeck, Neos, Wergo, Hat Hat and Channel Classics, among others.

Jeremias Schwarzer began the 2018/19 season at the Tonhalle Düsseldorf with an enthusiastically received performance as soloist for the Capella Augustina under Andreas Spering (with works by Telemann and Sanchez-Verdú). He then turned his focus to recording the CD for the baroque recital project "Le Ballet Imaginaire" in collaboration with the harpsichordist Ralf Waldner. The CD was released in May 2019 by GENUIN as a co-production with Bayerischer Rundfunk. In addition to giving chamber concerts and master classes, this season Jeremias Schwarzer also developed a special laboratory project for artistic research with music students together with the concert designer Folkert Uhde. Under the title "Spuren", in July 2019 the architecture of Nuremberg’s St. Sebald church was transformed into a musical and spatial installation that reflected the different architectural layers and levels of meaning of the building.

The 2019/20 season kicks off with Jeremias Schwarzer's first collaboration with the celebrated composer Jörg Widmann: at the UltraSchall Festival Berlin in January 2020, Jeremias Schwarzer, in collaboration with the Minguet Quartet, will present the world premiere of a revised version of Widmann's 5th string quartet with recorder; the programme also features the premiere of a new solo work by the Japanese composer Dai Fujikura. In addition to recitals with the "Le Ballet Imaginaire" project, Jeremias Schwarzer is developing a new interdisciplinary project with the baroque orchestra Concerto Köln to be presented in 2021/22 at several European festivals.
