Biography

Friedrich Heinrich Kern is a composer and pianist who has studied in Germany, Korea and the United States. Much of his work draws from literary and visual stimuli and is inspired by close artistic collaborations. He has worked with ensembles including: Philharmonic Orchestra Baden-Baden, Filarmonica Arturo Toscanini, Theater Heidelberg, International Contemporary Ensemble, Talea Ensemble, Ensemble Argento, JACK Quartet, Mivos Quartet, Ensemble Purimo and Ensemble TIMF Korea.
As a pianist, he recently premiered his Chamber Concerto for piano and string octet with the JACK Quartet and Mivos Quartet in 2011, followed by an artist residency at the Djerassi Foundation in California. In April 2012, the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) presented his composition Wir in New York. The first performance of Indigo for orchestra, written as a commission for the Filarmonica Arturo Toscanini, was premiered in May 2012 in Germany. Soprano Lucia Rizzi and Ensemble Plurimo presented his new work Brise Marine at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice, Italy, in June 2012. 2013 started off with a portrait concert: Matthias Pintscher and members of the Ensemble Intercontemporain presented selected works at the Heidelberg Spring Music Festival in Germany. 2014 is marked by the commission of a Te Deum for soloists, chorus and orchestra by the Bach Chor Mannheim, and Winterreisen for ensemble and electronics, presented at the Goethe-Institut Boston by ensemble mise-en. He currently works and lives in Tel Aviv, Israel, as a NYU Global Research Institute fellow.
