Konstantin Heidrich was born in 1975 in Hamburg , Germany into a musical family, his father Peter Heidrich being violinist and composer. After having decided to learn to play the cello, Konstantin’s teachers have been Edwin Koch and Thomas Grossenbacher. His studies then brought him to work with Martin Ostertag and Frans Helmerson. Masterclasses with Young Chang Cho and David Geringas added to his development. Cellistically and musically essential to him were the lessons with Steven Isserlis, Misha Katz and Anna Galvez.

Konstantin Heidrich is the cellist of the Faure Quartett and holds a professorship for cello at Universität der Künste Berlin in Germany. Concerts as soloist brought him to work with renown orchestras and conductors such as Andrea Marcon or Kristjan Järvi. He worked as principle cellist in Rundfunksinfonie-Orchester Berlin and Kammerakademie Potsdam. His students are international prize winners. Konstantin Heidrich gives master classes in Germany, Norway, Singapur, Italy and Brazil.
