As soloist and chamber musician Judith Ermert performs internationally:
The cellist "thrills… with a distinctive voice and an original mind. The listener is spellbound from the very first note ... a tone that is powerful but never forced." (Süddeutsche Zeitung)
The Bangkok Post describes her as "...extraordinary musical and technical talent..." and the WDR praises not only her "utter will to shape", but also "the ability to accomplish her ideas authentically".
Having been the principal cellist of the Jeunesses Musicales World Orchestra with concerts at i.a. the Berliner Philharmonie, Judith Ermert also occurs regularly as a soloist with renowned orchestras since her early youth, such as i.a. Bangkok Symphony Orchestra, Kammerphilharmonie Danzig, Südwestdeutsches Kammerorchester Pforzheim, Thüringen Philharmonie Gotha, Moldova State Philharmonic and Chamber Orchestra Leopoldinum.
During the new season she will play her debut at the Radio Orchestra Bucharest with Haydn's Cello Concerto in D major.
Judith Ermert has graduated from the Folkwang Hochschule Essen studying with Young- Chang Cho and Christoph Richter and perfected her skills afterwards in the prestigious class of Ralph Kirshbaum at the Royal Northern College of Music Manchester.
Encountering and working with Siegfried Palm she acquired a taste for devoting herself also to the music of our time at young age.
In 2013 she released a first Hindemith recording together with Belgian pianist Daan Vandewalle (for Fuga Libera) , which attracted wide interest:
"A performance of technical perfection, great musicality and imperial sonority" (Diapason).
Among others a new CD will be released in 2017 with works of German composer
Prof. Martin Herchenröder in collaboration with pianist Severin von Eckardstein at the label NEOS.
