Jan-Filip Tupa was born in 1980 in Recklinghausen. He studied cello at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London under Raphael Wallfisch. In 2006 he won an International Ensemble Modern Academy scholarship during which the quartet

Praesenz was born. As a regular guest musician with

Ensemble Modern and cellist of ensemble Proton Bern, Jan-Filip maintains close contact with avant-garde composition. As a soloist, Jan-Filip concentrates on

the works of the later half of the 20th century. Henri Dutilleux's Tout un monde lointain, Hans Werner Henze's Ode an den Westwind and Bernd Alois Zimmermann's Concerto en forme de pas de trois form the core of his repertoire, alongside concerti by Wolfgang Rihm, Matthias Pintscher and Jacqueline Fontyn. Jan-Filip recorded Zimmermann's aforementioned concerto with the RSO Stuttgart in 2015 for the label Cybele.
