Wie ben ik?

My name is Iván Sáez Schwartz I come from The Canary Islands in Spain and I am a violist. I started to play violin at the age of 6 in the conservatory of my city, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and then I decided to switch to the viola to study the bachelor with the professor Macarena Pesutic Hecker in my home town as well. After doing an erasmus exchange program with the Royal Conservatory in The Hague I decided to do the entrance audition to continue my studies there with the professors Mikhail Zemtsov and Asdis Valdimarsdotir, and nowadays I am a forth year bachelor student in that conservatory.

I have had lessons and masterclasses with Sacha Zemtsov, Igor Sulyga, Nobuko Imai, Naoko Shimizu, Paul Silverthorne, Roger Benedict, Gérard Caussé...

Nowadays I am playing on a viola made by Willibrord Crijnen in Amsterdam in 1995 from the NMF collection.
