Julia Hagen (Salzburg, 1995) received her first cello lessons from Detlef Mielke in Salzburg. She would later study at the Mozarteum with Enrico Bronzi. She then studied in Vienna, first with Reinhard Latzko and later with Heinrich Schiff. She would then spend another two years with Jens-Peter Maintz in Berlin, completing the lineage of illustrious pedagogues with Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt, with whom she studied at the Kronberg Academy.
She made her debut in large venues such as Tokyo’s Suntory Hall, Konzerthaus Berlin, and the Vienna Musiekverein, and released her first CD in 2019, featuring Brahms’ cello sonatas and songs, arranged for solo cello.
Julia Hagen plays a cello built by Francesco Ruggieri from 1684.
