Prof. Frank Bradke and the Schnitzler Quartet
On 30 April 2012, the DZNE hosted the 6th installment of the “Music & Brain” series at Forschungszentrum caesar, Ludwig-Erhard-Allee 2, in 53175 Bonn.
The event began with a talk by Prof. Bradke, DZNE, on the topic “Lesion of the Spinal Cord: Activation of Nerve Growth”. Subsequently, the Schnitzler Quartett played works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Dimitri Schostakowitsch and Robert Schumann.
Since 2011, Prof. Frank Bradke is full professor and senior group leader at DZNE. He studied Biochemistry, Anatomy and Developmental Biology in Berlin and London and received his doctorate in 1999 in Heidelberg. Before he joined the DZNE, Prof. Bradke conducted research at the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology in Martinsried. He completed his habilitation in 2009 at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich (LMU). His excellent work was recently awarded with the IRP Schellenberg Prize.
The Schnitzler Quartett - founded 2010 at the Kölner Musikhochschule - recently impressed a sold out Beethovenhaus with technical excellence and unsurpassed musicality. The musicians: Werner von Schnitzler and Edward Bayer (violin), Maya Rasooly (viola) and Johann Ludwig (cello) also have individual impressive solo biographies. They reflect diverse influences internationally renowned teachers such as Igor Ozim and Pinchas Zukerman (WVS), Pavel Kudelasek and Michael Vaiman (EB), Hagai Shaham and Tabea Zimmermann (MR) and Miklos Perenyi (JL). As an ensemble, the Schnitzler Quartet focuses particularly on the time of Prof. Harald Schoneweg and is inspired by the Auryn Quartet.
