Jana Krämer-Forster studied in Berlin at the Hanns Eisler Academy of Music with Lothar Friedrich and at the Berlin University of the Arts with Mi Kyung Lee. She was a scholarship holder at the Orchestra Academy of the Staatskapelle Berlin. She has played in the Chamber Philharmonic of the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival and various Berlin chamber orchestras, including the Neues Berliner Kammerorchester and the Kammerorchester Carl Phillip Emanuel Bach.
I play an old Italian violin that had been lying around forgotten in a West German monastery for a long time. A former East Berlin violinist who had fled from the GDR discovered it there. When he returned to his old home in retirement, I was able to purchase it from him.
I love the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. It enables us as violinists to play polyphonically on our own.
I would definitely take Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Goldberg Variations” and the “St. Matthew Passion” with me to a desert island.
I would like to master my voice so that I could sing opera performances all over the world.
