Sascha Friedl is a humble and reserved artist, albeit with a big stage presence. His performances reach heights of excellence, with his sensational 5.40-meter-long sub-contrabass flute in our music theatre project Dede Korkut. His flute playing is characterised by strong physical performances that don’t shy away from risk. Sascha Friedl is a natural musician who devotes himself completely to his art form and is uncompromising in his performances. Friedl studied flute in Munich and Frankfurt am Main. During his studies he received a lectureship as the youngest lecturer at the University in Augsburg. During his one-year internship with the Symphony Orchestra of the Bavarian Radio, he worked with many great conductors such as Lorin Maazel, Sir Colin Davis, Kurt Sanderling and Semyon Bychkov.
His intensive engagement with contemporary music is particularly evident in the founding of Baader 66 – the autonomous improvisational ensemble of the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie, which he set up with seven other musicians. In addition to his musical work, he also participates as a singer and speaker in projects and runs his own coffee roastery in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg.
