PERCUSIÓN - Jan Schlichte :: Faculty :: esim

Jan Schlichte originally played the piano. Because from that experience he learned to read music well, the music teacher at his school asked him to take charge of percussion in the youth orchestra. In 1991 he began his studies in Frankfurt, later moving to the Trossingen Musikhochschule, where he had as teachers Franz Lang and Rainer Seegers, timpanist of the Berlin Philharmonic. Seegers was, together with Franz Schindlbeck, also his teacher at the Academy of the Philharmonic Orchestra.

Before joining the Berlin Philharmonic, Schlichte gained extensive orchestral experience playing, among other ensembles, in the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie and the South West German Radio Orchestra (SWR). His particular interest is contemporary chamber music with piano and percussion. He is also a founding member of the Berlin ensemble KlangArt and plays in the Berlin New Music Chamber Ensemble and the Scharoun. Ensemble. As a teacher he has also recently become involved in the important musical-pedagogical project in Venezuela.
