It was his close collaboration with Sandor Végh which led Christoph Richter to a lifelong passion for chamber music, particularly the string quartet. He joined the Cherubini Quartet with whom he has performed in all the major concert halls and now is one of the most sought after chamber musicians in Europe. He plays regularly with artists such as András Schiff, Isabelle Faust, Alexander Lonquich, Heinz Holliger and many others. Amongst his many recordings are works by Schumann and Holliger for ECM, concertos by Julius Klengel for cpo, the Brahms Sextet, Op. 36 (Diapason d’or) for Harmonia Mundi.

He leads a master-class for cello at the Folkwang University in Essen (Germany) and teaches chamber music at the European Chamber Music Academy, and in London and Manchester. After his studies with André Navarra and Pierre Fournier, Christoph Richter won prizes at international competitions. He plays as soloist with many leading orchestras and is a guest at festivals such as Salzburg where he gave the première of Introduktion, Thema und Variationen for cello, strings and harp by Henze.
