German Cellist Maximilian Hornung Joins Columbia Artists Management Roster

German cellist Maximilian Hornung has joined the roster of Columbia Artists in New York – for North and South American artist management

It has been announced today that the 32-year-old German cellist Maximilian Hornung has joined the roster of Columbia Artists in New York – for North and South American management.

A former Principal Cellist with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Maximilian's recent solo engagements include performances with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich, Czech Philharmonic, Vienna Symphony, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Bamberg Symphony.




“We first heard about Maximilian through Anne-Sophie Mutter, who has been a big advocate of his for many years ..." Manager, Martin Wittenberg from Columbia Artists New York has told The Violin Channel.

"There is a truly outstanding younger generation of cellists performing today, but we think what sets Maximilian apart are his natural musicality, his innate sense of musical style, the beautiful lyricism of his playing ... and his communicative and easygoing approach ... ” he has said.

“Maximilian is already a regular with many great orchestras and a favorite musical partner of conductors such as Bernard Haitink, David Zinman and Yannick Nezet-Séguin ... we fully expect him to grow further to become one of the most sought-after and impactful string soloists."

Columbia Artists' esteemed roster includes Lynn Harrell, Annie-Sophie Mutter, Vadim Repin, Julian Rachlin, Khatia Buniatishvili, Menahem Pressler, Olga Kern, Valery Gergiev, Leonard Slatkin, Fabio Luisi, Seiji Ozawa, Jaap van Zweden and Vladimir Spivakov.

Maximilian will be managed in North and South America by Martin Wittenberg and Stefana Atlas from the Sheldon/Atlas office within Columbia Artists New York - and with Karsten Witt Musik Management Berlin for European and general management.
