[Translate to English:] Margit Kern

After growing up near Darmstadt, Margit Kern studied accordion with Hugo Noth and Matti Rantanen at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. She gives solo recitals and performs with chamber music ensembles in many European countries and has undertaken tours of the US and South Korea. Among other venues, she appears in concert as a guest artist with the musikFabrik NRW, Ensemble Modern, l’art pour l’art, oh Ton-Ensemble, the Seoul Spring Festival, the Weltmusiktage in Stuttgart, Musica Viva in Munich, the Perugia Clas- sica Festival, and Forum neuer Musik of the DLF. She collaborates closely with numerous composers of our day, whose works she premieres. Numerous radio portraits make this spe- cialization clear. In 2005, she published her first solo CD entitled “Heart.” This was followed in 2011 with TWO and in 2013 with mirror.

Margit Kern is professor on the faculty of music at the Hochschule für Künste, Bremen.
