Jan Kiesewetter studied at Richard Strauss Conservatory and at HMT in Munich. He recently earned his Master's degree under Florian Trübsbach and is now a teacher too. Courses and workshops held by Michael Riessler, Joe Gallardo and Ingrid Jensen, among others, have left their traces, and the courses held by Gregor Hübner especially helped Kiesewetter in developing his own composition style. However – and this has advanced his work significantly – he also is involved in other fields from new music all the way to musicals in his concerts. A fortunate coincidence: mature, rich sound on an instrument and a gift for composition come together in one person.
