Christian Schumann

Christian Schumann was born in Freiburg to Hungarian parents and had his first piano lessons at the age of six. While still a schoolboy, he was accepted for preparatory classes in piano, conducting and music theory at the Freiburg Conservatory. After completing high school, he began his studies in conducting and composition at the Franz Liszt Conservatory, graduating in 2007. Immediately upon completing his studies he obtained a position at Theater St. Gallen, and he debuted in March of this year at the Bavarian State Opera.

Hinrich Alpers

Even in his early years Hinrich Alpers was able to attend the Hanover Conservatory and he later studied at the Juilliard School in New York. In addition to numerous international awards, in 2009 he won the famous International Telekom Beethoven Competition, which instantly catapulted him into the circle of sought-after concert pianists in the great music centers of the world.

Youth Orchestra – Vietnam National Academy of Music

The Youth Orchestra of the Vietnam National Academy of Music consists of over 70 young lecturers and exceptional students from the Academy. In recent years the Youth Orchestra has worked under the direction of such internationally renowned conductors as Nguyen Thieu Hoa, Claire Levacher (France), Peter Gülke (Germany) and Christian Schumann (Germany). Especially outstanding was their participation in the international Beethovenfest in Bonn and Berlin in October 2009.
