Jeanette Gier grew up in Neuss, Germany where Prof. Johannes Goritzki became her early artistic mentor. Cello studies with solo cellist Catherine Tunnell lead to a place in Prof. Kanngiesser’s cello class (Cologne) and Prof. Goritzki’s master class in Dusseldorf where she recieved a concert diploma with "summa cum laude". Gier also taught at the Robert-Schumann-Musikhochschule in Dusseldorf and held the position of Assistant solo cellist with the widely celebrated German Chamber Academy of Neuss.
Here she developed her fine sense of ensemble, her musical spontaneity, and a clearly distinctive, classical sound. The classical language forms the rudiment of her artistic interpretation, from classical through romantic to contemporary compositions and elegance in sound, an emphasis on colourful expression and clarity of phrase are hallmarks of her performances. She is a founding member of the Eldering Ensemble and performs at international festivals in Bonn - ‘Beethoven Festival’, Lugano - ‘Festival Ticino Musica’, Luxembourg - ‘Printemps Festival’ and Australia. Collaboration with Professors Hariolf Schlichtig, Hatto Beyerle and Raphael Oleg refined her chamber music performance experience.
Radio broadcasts and live CD performances include those for 3MBS, Australia; ABC Radio FM, Australia; The German Chamber Academy of Neuss and the Eldering Ensemble.
