Sebastian Knauer's repertoire is exceptionally extensive and multi-facetted. Time and again he is eager to discover new key areas, essential to his work.
Another aspect of his creativity is his unique programme planning, such as solo recitals, revealing relevant connections between the different compositions, or many projects in which he performs with his longstanding friend and duo-partner, the violinist Daniel Hope. Whether they appear in Europe, the USA or Japan – this duo earns enthusiastic acclaim from their audiences and the press. Their CD "East meets West", issued in 2005, was rewarded with nominations for ECHO KLASSIK and Grammy.
