Born in 2003, the composer Julius von Lorentz is one of the most promising young composers in Germany. He composed his first pieces at the age of seven. Three times he won the Bundespreis Jugend-komponiert. At the 30th Orchesterwerkstatt in Halberstadt he was awarded the prize of the Kuratorium Stadtkultur Halberstadt as well as the prize of the festival "IMPULS". The young artist took part in numerous composition workshops in Germany and Austria, among them a masterclass at the Arnold Schoenberg Center in Vienna. He received a partial scholarship for the international summer academy of music (ISAM) and was also invited to the styriarte Festival in Graz. He wrote commissioned compositions for the initiative NEUES ZEUG, for the Harz Symphony Orchestra, Jugend-musiziert and for the project "250 piano pieces for Beethoven" by the pianist Susanne Kessel. His catalogue of works includes solo to orchestral literature, but his focus so far has been on smaller ensembles.
He is also highly successful as a pianist and cellist. In addition to numerous state and national prizes at Jugend-musiziert, his musical work was also awarded the GVL prize at the competition festival of special prizes in Regensburg. He already won the Bruno Frey Prize three times and recently also for composition. Julius von Lorentz is currently taking piano lessons with Prof. Fedele Antonicelli, and is a student in the cello class of Prof. Mario de Secondi.
