Christoph Sietzen's Rising Star status is a reflection of the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra's recognition of the young and highly gifted percussionist's outstanding talent. He may only be 24 years of age but he has already performed in several major international concert halls, such as the Wiener Konzerthaus and the Tokyo Suntory Hall, and with leading German orchestras. However, he will be appearing along with his Wave Quartet to offer a varied programme of work and give us a fairly good idea of the extent of his repertoire: from Bach to Piazzolla.
