Matthias Schlubeck (Panflute)

Matthias Schlubeck, born 1973 in Wuppertal (Germany), is considered one of the world´s leading pan flutists, especially known for his interpretation of the classical repertoire. Schlubeck received first pan flute instruction at the age of 5 with Erich zur Eck. He then went on to receive instruction from Jean-Claude Mara, traveling each time to the South of France.  Masterclasses with the legendary Gheorghe Zamfir (1990), Nicolai Pirvu and Damian Luca (1993 and 1994) and subsequent lessons with Damian Luca in the Netherlands were landmarks in his musical training.

As a prodigy student, he entered Prof. Manfredo Zimmermann´s class at the Music College in Wuppertal. He graduated from the program with distinction, and received the highest German degree in music, the solo artist diploma in 1998. This makes Schlubeck the first pan flutist ever to hold that prestigious degree.  Since October of 2010, he has been an instructor at the Hochschule Osnabrück for students with a major in pan flute - the only German program of its kind where pan flutists are able to receive a Bachelor of Music.

In 1999, Schlubeck was honored with a career grant by the city of Wuppertal, as well as the Springmann Foundation Award in 2005.  His unstoppable performance activities have lead him to stages in Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, France, the Baltic, Italy, Spain, Rumania, Bolivia and the U.S.A.  He performs in numerous collaborations, e.g., with organ, piano,harp, guitar, orchestra. His performances have been broadcast on radio and TV.   In early 2009, Matthias Schlubeck founded the Music Academy “Alte Mühle” (Old Mill) in Bellersen (Germany) where he also lives in a historic water mill.
