About Andrei Ioniță
For Andrei Ioniță, life, music and the arts are never direct, but pave their own way of expression. The Times of London calls him “one of the most exciting cellists to have emerged for a decade”; the British Gramophone “a cellist of superb skill and musical magination and a commitment to music of our time.” The artist himself remarks, “the instrument will eventually find the musician who is destined for it”. Ioniță plays a violoncello built in Brescia, Italy, by Giovanni Battista Rogeri in 1671 with a characteristic design. It is a famous loan by the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben, in which he is a scholarship holder.

About Catalin Serban
Catalin Serban is a pianist who knows how to delight audiences with rare directness and depth of interpretation. His impressive musical message is characterized by subtle emotionality coupled with technical brilliance, virtuosity and transparency. Born in Bucharest, Serban was deeply influenced throughout his musical development by his familiar connection to singing and his strong affinity for the music of the Romantic and early modern periods, elements of which unmistakably run through his performances.
