Hire Kathrin Christians ›
«(…) „Entstanden ist eine in sich stimmige und Maßstäbe setzende Produktion, die dazu beitragen könnte, dass diesen beiden Konzerten in Zukunft deutlich mehr Aufmerksamkeit zuteil wird als bisher.“»
«"Das ist die Kraft der großen Werke. Und deshalb macht mich traurige Musik fröhlich. Weil sie von der Überwindung des Leidens erzählt und es am Ende immer doch Hoffnung gibt. Und wenn nicht auch für das Werk selbst oder den Komponisten, dann doch sicherlich für den Hörer.“»

«"Bestimmte Attribute ziehen sich wie ein roter Faden durch das Leben und die Laufbahn der Flötistin Kathrin Christians: Mut, Neugier, Kampfgeist, Lebenslust! Kathrin Christians redet gerne, sie hört gerne zu. Sie kann lachen und im nächsten Augenblick nachdenklich sein. Sie ist bisweilen herrlich albern und kann sich sodann gleich wieder über Dinge aufregen. Kathrin Christians ist eine bemerkenswerte Frau.“»
Clarino, November 2017 (2018)

Bio

“My mother always said that I was conceived of an experiment,” says Kathrin Christians with a laugh. “She was firmly convinced that the uterus is our first classroom as humans, and filled me with sound, even as a fetus, with classical music.” The experiment worked: Kathrin Christians mesmerizes her audience with her flute concerts on national and international stages. Nizza, Palermo, Ouagadougou, Seoul, Bangkok, Saint Tropez, Lucerne, Pretoria, Berlin, Frankfurt… the 30-year-old is known for the pearly lightness and nimble figures of her flute playing.
At the age of three, Christians loved to sing Schubert. At six, she began to play the flute. The native Heidelberger earned the money for her first flute by playing the English flute in the pedestrian zone – she started at the age of seven, and by the age of ten she had earned the money she needed. Christians won her first flute competition at the age of twelve. Kathrin Christians perfected her playing and studied the flute in Mannheim, München and Stuttgart. She finished her masters’ degree in 2012 at the Musikhochschule Stuttgart with Prof. Davide Formisano, with a final grade of 1 with distinction. At the age of only 23, she became first flautist with the Heidelberg Symphony Orchestra, as well as the Mannheim Mozart Orchestra, a position she held until early 2013.
She played numerous concerts throughout Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Italy, France, Denmark, Greece, Japan, South Korea, Thailand and Africa. In 2014, she performed at, among others, the Lucerne Festival and the Lüneberger Bachtagen. In 2013, she thrilled her audiences with solo concerts at the Stuttgarter Liederhalle and the Schwetzinger Rococo Theater, and debuted with a double concert for flute and harp by W. A. Mozart with Catrin Finch at the Festival Palermo Classica.
