Hansjacob Staemmler is Professor of Chamber Music and Piano Accompaniment/Coaching at Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts, after having previously taught at the music universities of Berlin, Freiburg, and Karlsruhe. For many years, he has been pursuing a wide-ranging career as soloist, chamber musician, and vocal accompanist. His activities focus on chamber music in a number of different formations. Already during his studies, he performed on a regular basis as a chamber musician with soloists of the Berliner Philharmoniker orchestra in the Ensemble Berlin.
Since then, Hansjacob Staemmler has been collaborating with renowned instrumentalists and vocalists in a great variety of chamber music formations, ranging from duos to sextets. As a piano soloist, he has given recitals as well as concerts with orchestras. His artistic pursuits are likewise documented on several CD releases, along with numerous recordings for radio broadcast (Deutschlandradio Kultur, Bayrischer Rundfunk, Südwestfunk, and others). “Composing Beethoven,” Staemmler’s most recent chamber music CD featuring Beethoven’s clarinet trios with Kilian Herold (clarinet) and Peter-Philipp Staemmler (cello), was nominated for the German Record Critics’ Prize.
In duo formation with his brother, Peter-Philipp Staemmler (cello), Hansjacob was awarded the First Prize at the 2009 National Music Competition and chosen for the “Young Artist Concerts” national selection. Hansjacob Staemmler studied piano with Prof. Georg Sava at the Hanns Eisler University of Music in Berlin, completing his training with active participation in masterclasses imparted by Daniel Barenboim and Menahem Pressler. Oboist Burkhard Glaetzner has exerted a decisive influence on Staemmler’s artistic development: with Glaetzner, he has premiered a number of works by major contemporary composers.
