Cellist Julia Hagen, born in Salzburg in 1995, is one of the most promising instrumentalists of her generation. At the age of 5 she received her first lessons from Detlef Mielke at the Musikum Salzburg. She went on to study at the Salzburg Mozarteum with Enrico Bronzi, at the University of Vienna with Reinhard Latzko and from 2013 to 2015 with legendary cellist Heinrich Schiff. In 2015 the young musician moved to Berlin to continue her studies under Jens Peter Maintz at the Universität der Künste. She is currently a scholarship holder of the Kronberg Academy, where she is working with Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt.

Julia Hagen made her debut at the Brucknerhaus Linz at the age of 14, playing as soloist with the Vienna Jeunesse Orchestra. Since then she has played extensively throughout Europe and Japan, including in venues like the Wiener Konzerthaus (where she was a Great Talent in the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons), Wiener Musikverein, Tonhalle Zürich, Barbican Hall and Suntory Hall. She has performed with the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, Mozarteumorchester Salzburg, Bruckner Orchester Linz and Kremerata Baltica, worked with conductors such as Ivor Bolton, Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, Ingo Metzmacher, Markus Poschner and Kristiina Poska and regularly appears with chamber music partners like Igor Levit, Alexander Lonquich, Aaron Pilsan, Annika Treutler, Florian Boesch, Renaud Capuçon, Tobias Feldmann, Thomas Reif, Gérard Caussé, Clemens Hagen, Dominik Wagner and the Armida and Artemis quartets.


Highlights of the 2021/22 season include debuts with the Radio Symphonieorchester Berlin under Sir Andrew Davies, Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino under Franz Welser-Möst and I Pommerigi Musicali under James Feddeck. She also returns to the City of Birmingham Orchestra under Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla and the Salzburger Festspiele with Renaud Capuçon. The young cellist has a close artistic partnership with the Bruckner Orchester Linz, with whom she appeared in Salzburg and Linz earlier in the season and is due to perform at the Isarphilharmonie in Munich. She will perform numerous concerts with the French Quatuor Arod, as well as at the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern with outstanding musical partners such as Tobias Feldmann (violin), Kit Armstrong (piano) and the Armida Quartet and at the VivaCello festival in Liestal. From the 2021/22 season, she is also in the Debut Programme of the Nikolaisaal Potsdam.


Between 2014 and 2016, Julia Hagen was one of six carefully selected young cellists who took part in the Classe d’Excellence de Violoncelle taught by Gautier Capuçon and supported by the Louis Vuitton Foundation. Masterclasses with Gábor Takács-Nagy, Pamela Frank, Lawrence Power, Nobuko Imai, Torleif Thedéen, Laurence Lesser and Claudio Bohorquez round off her training. She is a prize winner of the international cello competition in Liezen and the Mazzacurati cello competition. She received the Hajek-Boss-Wagner Culture Prize, as well as the Nicolas-Firmenich Prize of the Verbier Festival Academy.

In 2019 Julia Hagen and her long-time chamber music partner, pianist Annika Treutler, released their first album with the two cello sonatas and transcribed songs by Johannes Brahms on Hänssler Classic.
