About

Violinist Sebastian See-Schierenberg is joined by Flamenco guitarist Ramon Ruiz and pianist Sophia Lisovskaya in this compilation of works drawn from and inspired by the music of Spain and Latin America.

A British violinist of Chinese-Malaysian and German descent, Sebastian grew up in a family of artists and musicians. He first discovered his love of the violin at the age of 6, after hearing a performance of the Sibelius Violin Concerto. He was awarded a Scholarship to the Royal College of Music in London at the age of 16, where he won a number of prestigious prizes and on graduating won the Maisie Lewis Young Artist Award, enabling him to give his London Southbank recital debut. Performances last season included recitals at the Palais des Beaux-Arts Brussels, the Konzerthaus Berlin, the Luxembourg Philharmonie, and the National Theatre Yangon, a series of concerts with eminent pianist Julian Jacobson and recitals with Debussy specialist Noriko Ogawa.

Sebastian heads a team that organises and promotes numerous and diverse international projects. As well as performing solo violin repertoire, Sebastian enjoys playing a diverse range of music. He has recorded CDs with various jazz groups, held orchestral positions in Lisbon and Kuala Lumpur, performed with artists such as fusion tabla player Talvin Singh and even toured with pop artist Madonna.
