Sebastian Gottschick


Sebastian Gottschick was born in 1959 to a family of church musicians. He studied violin, composition and conducting in Cologne, Berlin, Hamburg and at the Juilliard School in New York. The broad spectrum of his interests and experience – in contemporary and early music, as conductor, composer and arranger, violinist, violist and teacher at the Cologne Conservatory (HfMT Köln) - is reflected in his compositions and arrangements.

Sebastian led the Ensemble Oriol Berlin and was violist of the Manon Quartet Berlin for ten years, respectively. As conductor he has worked with ensembles including KlangForum Wien/Vienna, MusikFabrik Köln/Cologne, the Kammerakademie Potsdam, the Düsseldorf Symphonikern, the Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and the Radio Orchestras in Frankfurt, Warsaw, Berlin, Stuttgart und Munich.  He enjoys a longstanding collaboration with the ensemble für neue musik zurich. Numerous recordings with that ensemble include the Charles Ives Songbook, Gottschick’s adaptation of Ives’songs. His arrangements for the Alliage-Quintet have been released by Sony Classics, including Stravinsky’s „Firebird“ with Sabine Meyer. The CD Dancing Paris, for which Gottschick arranged works by Enescu, Milhaud and Copland, was awarded an Echo Prize in 2010.
