Behind The Scenes Interview - Sebastian Maier


Stuttgart, Germany

What do you do for the festival? 

I help with everything.

Why do you love the LCCMF?

I love the culture. The community supports the festival by attending and donating. I am hosted by wonderful people and fed wonderful meals (thank you, John). And of course I love the music.  

What was your favorite LCCMF moment?

The closing concert in 2012. It was my first year at the festival, and it was really special for me.

Why do you love music?

Because nothing else can touch me like music. It connects people. 

Do you play an instrument?

I play cello. I’ve been playing for 14 years.

Suggested Composer/artist:

I do like Brahms. I also love the music from Riho Esko Maimets. He was one of the young composers at LCCMF in 2013. 

Suggested Listening:

Bach, Suite No. 5 in c minor, which we are about to see at the St. Paul’s Cathedral.

What’s next?

I’m going to work for a festival for classical music in Hamburg. Then, I will study cultural sciences at university…maybe.
