Daniel Sepec is concertmaster of the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, a position he has held since 1993. He also performs regularly as a soloist with his orchestra and was the artistic director and violin soloist in two of the orchestra’s CD recordings, one with works by Johann Sebastian Bach and another with Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
As a guest concertmaster, he has collaborated on many occasions with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe (including a tour with Claudio Abbado), the Camerata Academica Salzburg and the Ensemble Oriol Berlin.
His solo appearances include performances with the Academy of Ancient Music under Christopher Hogwood, the Wiener Akademie under Martin Haselböck, and the Orchestre des Champs-Elysées under Philippe Herreweghe. His recording of H. I. F. Biber’s Rosary Sonatas received the annual award of the German Record Critics. Up to now, Daniel Sepec is the only musician to have recorded a CD playing on a recently rediscovered violin that belonged to Ludwig van Beethoven, a project he undertook together with the pianist Andreas Staier.
From September 2010 to July 2014, he taught as a professor at the Basel Academy of Music. In 2014, he accepted a professorship at the University of Music in Lübeck.
