Matthias Lorenz was born in 1964 in Bensheim/ Bergstraße. After his civil service he studied in Frankfurt/Main with Prof. Gerhard Mantel and on several summercourses (with e.g. Siegfried Palm and Wolfgang Boettcher). Since his diploma he is freelancing.
The focus of both his theoretical and artistic work is on contemporary music. Solorecitals and radio-recordings lead him to many european countries. Since 1996 he played three productions with the Frankfurt Ballet. His classical work is open for trips towards rock-, pop- and electroacoustic music.
