Steinhardt is by far the youngest composer represented
in my publishing house. I got to know him during a panflute
course in Remscheid in the year 2000; he was standing out
not only as a talented panflute player but also as piano player
and composer. Steinhardt was born in 1982 into a musical family,
his father being a trumpet player and his mother being a singer.
Already during the times in the elementary school he showed
first interests in composing, his brother being a drummer
inspired him to experiment with this instrument, and he started
his education on the piano at the age of ten. Soon he was
visiting master classes for piano.
His interest for the panflute - as interpret
and composer for this instrument - started mainly in the year
2000, when he got to know the panflute players Damian Luca,
Matthias Schlubeck and me during a panflute master class in
As pupil of the Landesmusikgymnasiums
Rheinland-Pfalz (Internat) he is regularly participating in
projects for chamber music, bands and big bands, and he is
engaged in concerts and CD recordings. He already won several
awards as composer and piano player:
- November 2000, 2nd prize at the national
competition "Jugend Jazzt", Piano.
- Spring 2001, 2nd prize at the composer's
competition Bach 2000.
- September 2001, 2nd Prize at the composer's
competition in Siegburg.
I am sure that we will hear much more
of Sebastian Steinhardt in the future, and I am glad having
engaged him as composer for the panflute.
