About Dominic Chamot

Dominic Chamot was chosen as the 2012 German representative in an internal selection by broadcaster WDR. Although aged just 16, the young pianist has already won several national and international competitions.

Born in Cologne in 1995, Dominic Chamot started to play the violin at the tender age of five. At nine he moved to the piano, mentored by Ruriko Goto-Lutz, and aged 12 he was accepted into the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Cologne, where he currently studies by Professor Sheila Arnold. Dominic has played concerts in Germany, France and Belgium, and last year caused a stir with his interpretation of the complete cycle “Die Schweiz” from "Années de pélerinage" during the ‘Year of List 2011’. It’ll be a busy 2012 for him, as this summer he will debut at the Schwetzingen Mozartfest Schwetzingen and at the festival of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern after taking part in Eurovision Young Musicians.

Last year newspaper Westdeutsche Zeitung called Dominic "an exceptional soloist", whilst the Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger labelled him "an exceptional talent on his way to a career as a pianist".
