Born in 1980, Caspar Frantz received his first piano lessons at the age of seven. Further studies took him to Rostock as a pupil of Matthias Kirschnereit. He studied with Eberhard Feltz at the Hanns Eisler Academy for Music in Berlin. Collaboration with pianists such as Renate Kretschmar-Fischer and Elisabeth Leonskaja as well as masterclasses with Karl-Heinz Kämmerling, Maria João Pires and György Kurtag have had a strong impact on his artistic development.

Since his début at the Rheingau Music Festival, Caspar Frantz has played in Germany, throughout Europe and at numerous festivals, including the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, the Festspiele in Schwetzingen, Ravinia Festival, Ludwigsburger Festspiele, the Schwarzwald Festival, the Beethovenfest in Bonn and at the IMS, Prussia Cove. He has appeared as a soloist with orchestras such as the Kiel Philharmonic, Rostock, Stralsund, the Iasi State Philharmonic Orchestra of Moldova, Polish Chamber Orchestras and the New Phiharmonic Westphalia. He was awarded first prize at the German Jugend musiziert, and he is also winner of the Mendelssohn award 2006, the Premio Vittorio Gui 2006 and the Deutscher Musikwettbewerb 2006 (together with the Cellist Julian Arp with whom he has played as a duo since 1996). He held scholarships from the Marie-Luise-Imbusch-Stiftung and the Deutscher Stiftung Musikleben, with the Carl-Heinz Illies Award, and is a fellow of the Villa Musica and the Horst-Rahe Foundation, Rostock.
