Michael Germer


Michael Germer was born in Vanløse in 2002. He has been playing the violin since the age of three and started getting teaching at the age of five. Michael studied at the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music in Tel Aviv and later in Vienna and at the soloist class at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen with Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider. He was awarded the Gladsaxe Music Prize 2023, the P2 Talent Prize 2022, and the 1st prize at the Danish String Competition. In 2019, he was the youngest semifinalist in the Carl Nielsen International Violin Competition. Michael will use the money that comes with the Léonie Sonning Talent Prize to travel with his teacher Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider when he is abroad to be still able to get lessons from him.
