Stefan Enemærke Becker
Stefan Enemærke Becker (1998) started playing the violin at age 5 with Kuno Kjærbye - he also studied with Erik Jakobsson and Michael Malmgreen. In 2015 he enrolled in the Danish pre-college programme MGK in Copenhagen, where he studied with Bodil Rørbech. He started his Bachelor’s degree at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm in 2019, where he studied with professor Cecilia Zilliacus until 2022, and is currently studying his Master’s degree at the Royal Danish Academy of Music with professor Peter Herresthal. Here he also studies chamber music with professor Tim Frederiksen. During his studies he has also received master classes and had private studies with, among others, Isabelle van Keulen, Nurit Stark, Eszter Haffner and Terje Moe Hansen. Since 2018 he has been a member of the Danish Youth Ensemble, through which he also has had the opportunity to play Side-by-Side with the Concertgebouw orchestra.
Stefan is an eager orchestral- and chamber musician and is very engaged in ensemble playing, sound, leading and interpretation. He has been engaged in orchestra playing ever since he played Brahms’ 2nd symphony in 2010 at the age of 12. In 2022 he, and three other musicians, founded Musikkollektivet HELIOS, a constellation where he produces, and plays in, concerts by and for young people. HELIOS is producing a half staged version of Bach’s St. Matthew’s Passion in Denmark in the spring of 2023 - the orchestra, choir, and soloists consists entirely of young music students.
