In the family quartet, the viola was actually their mother’s instrument. Julia Gartemann and her sister Cornelia played violin, their father, cello. And yet, at some point Julia Gartemann took up the viola and knew at once that it was »her« instrument. Since then she has never played the violin again. In 1990 she began studying the viola with Nobuko Imai at the Detmold Hochschule für Musik. After graduating she went in 1998 to Michael Tree at the renowned Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, then completed her training with Wilfried Strehle in the Berliner Philharmoniker’s Orchestra Academy as well as in master classes with Thomas Riebl, Kim Kashkashian, Wolfram Christ and the Tokyo and Vermeer String Quartets. Julia Gartemann, who has participated successfully in various competitions since 1986, appears as a soloist and in chamber music in Germany and abroad. In recent years she has also devoted herself to teaching, since 2014 she is a teacher at Berlin’s Hanns Eisler Hochschule für Musik. Julia Gartemann plays a 1767 viola by C.F. Landolfi.
