biography

”…Hornung seems to come from another planet. [He] is a man who has reached maturity early, and who combines the cool confidence of a veteran performer with the youthful abandon of a rookie” (Die ZEIT)

The course of Maximilian Hornung’s career so far is as extraordinary as the musician himself. He received wide ranging experience at the highest level at a very young age. His career began with extensive studies in Zurich and Berlin with the renowned professors Eldar Issakadze, Thomas Grossenbacher and David Geringas. As a dedicated chamber musician, he won the renowned ARD Music Competition with the Tecchler Trio in 2007, of which he was a member until 2011. At the age of just 23 he was promoted to the highly coveted position of principal cellist of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. Maximilian Hornung spent four short but significant years in this top orchestra before deciding to focus on his career as a soloist and chamber musician. This was undoubtedly the right decision, borne out by the impressive musicality, instinctive awareness of style and extraordinary maturity that the cellist has displayed on concert podiums throughout the last few years. “Everything done perfectly” commented Crescendo Magazine, amongst others.

Today, Maximilian Hornung regularly performs as a soloist with such renowned orchestras as the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich, Czech Philharmonic, Vienna Symphony, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Bamberg Symphony under conductors such as Daniel Harding, Yannick Nézét-Séguin, Mariss Jansons, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Semyon Bychkov, Bernard Haitink, Manfred Honeck, Antonello Manacorda, Mario Venzago, Jonathan Nott, Kristjan Järvi, Andrew Manze, Krzysztof Urbański and Robin Ticciati. His chamber music partners include Anne-Sophie Mutter, Antje Weithaas, Hélène Grimaud, Daniil Trifonov, Christian Tetzlaff, Lisa Batiashvili, François Leleux, Yefim Bronfman, Herbert Schuch, Lars Vogt, Jörg Widmann and Tabea Zimmermann. He has performed with the Arcanto Quartett and the Cuarteto Casals and has been invited to perform at festivals including Schwetzingen, Salzburg, Schwelsig-Holstein, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Rheingau, Lucerne, Verbier, Ravinia and Hong Kong. He has appeared in concert halls such as the philharmonic halls of Berlin, Cologne and Essen as well as the Vienna Musikverein, Concertgebouw Amsterdam and London’s Wigmore Hall.

In the 2016/17 season, Maximilian Hornung made his first appearances with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Verdi Orchestra Milan, NFM Symphony Orchestra Wroclaw and NDR Radiophilharmonie Hanover. As a chamber musician, he gave his celebrated debut at the Wigmore Hall and performed Schubert’s Trout Quintet with Anne-Sophie Mutter and Daniil Trifonov at the Salzburg Festival and Festspielhaus Baden-Baden before recording the project for Deutsche Grammophon.

Highlights of the 2017/18 season include debuts with the MDR Symphony Orchestra under Kristjan Järvi, Orchestre National de France under Semyon Bychkov, Tapiola Sinfonietta under Mario Venzago and Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra under Daniel Harding. Maximilian Hornung will also return to the Bern Symphony Orchestra under Mario Venzago, Florida Orchestra under Michael Francis, Kammerakademie Potsdam under Antonello Manacorda and Münchener Kammerorchester under John Storgårds. In September 2018 he will become Artistic Director of the VivaCello Festival Liestal.

His wide-ranging discography is impressive, not only due to his relatively young age, and includes solo concertos as well as recordings with prominent chamber musicians. He received the ECHO Klassik Prize for his first album (Sony 2011) – for which he was designated as Young Artist of the Year – as well as for his recording of Dvořák’s Cello Concerto with the Bamberg Symphony under the direction of Sebastian Tewinkel the following year (Sony 2012). Further recordings have included Richard Strauss’ major cello works with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra under Bernard Haitink (Sony 2014), Joseph Haydn’s cello concertos with the Kammerakademie Potsdam under Antonello Manacorda (Sony 2015), and further recordings for Genuin, Linn Records, NEOS, Bridge Records and CPO. Maximilian Hornung is supported and sponsored by the Anne-Sophie Mutter Circle of Friends Foundation and Borletti-Buitoni Trust London.
