The musical journey of cellist and singer-songwriter Marie Spaemann is shaped by an active and varied concert schedule as well as a fascination and curiosity for the diversity of the creative process and contemplative approaches to music making.
As a cellist Marie Spaemann won the international Johannes Brahms Competition in Pörtschach (Austria). A few years later she toured Germany and Austria as solo opening act and singer with the electro-swing pioneer [dunkelbunt].
Marie Spaemann has played as a soloist with a variety of orchestras (North German Philharmonic Orchestra, the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra, the Croatian Chamber Orchestra a.o.) and is regularly invited to perform at a wide range of international festivals and venues such as the Alpen Arte and More Ohr Less festival in Austria, the Podium and Fusion Festival in Germany, Puplinge Classique in France, the Dubrovnik Summer Festival in Croatia, the South Korean festival Classic Garden and the Konzerthaus International in New York City.
In 2018 Marie performed her solo program amongst other venues at the Amsterdam Cello Biennale as well as in her duo formation with Christian Bakanic (accordion) at the Berio Hall of the Vienna Konzerthaus. She is also regularly touring through Europe as a soloist within ‘The World of Hans Zimmer’.
