Andreas Timm studied in Leipzig and Lübeck and with Gustav Rivinius in Saarbrücken. The prize-winner of national and international competitions was a scholarship holder at the German Foundation for Musical Life. As a versatile, enthusiastic chamber musician, he plays with the Gewandhaus Quartet and the Ensemble Leipzig-Berlin, among others, and is a regular guest at festivals, for example in Nancy, Lucerne and Echternach, at the Schumann Festival in Zwickau and at the Tokyo String Festival.
There are many beautiful things, but for me at least, it seems important to have good conversation partners in my colleagues and to be able to talk with them about different aspects of life.
My instrument, the cello, is on the one hand extremely versatile in terms of range, but on the other, when played sensitively and expressively, it is almost as touching as a human voice. In addition, there is an almost incalculable number of great works for the cello – a continuous source of inspiration for me!
Probably I would either be a photographer, painter, sculptor, writer or adventurer somewhere in the world – at least some of these things would motivate my daily life.
Piano, actually, which is where my musical journey began, but alternatively I’d like to play the guitar or ukulele.
