Marie Rosa Günter, was born 1991 in Braunschweig/Germany. After several years in the class of Wolfgang Zill, she enrolled in the early study program of th IFF Hannover where she was pupil of Matti Raekallio and Jelena Levit. She has been studying in the class of Bernd Goetzke since 2010 and is currently pursuing a master´s degree. It is certainly no accident that the young pianist has chosen the Goldberg Variations for her debut CD- the music of Johann Sebastian Bach has occupied a central place in her repertoire since the very beginning. Her involvement with Bach has been underlined by a first prize of the Bach Competition in Köthen and her participation in Leipziger Bachtage and the Würzburg Bach Festival.

Other notable awards in her musical career have included first prize in Steinway International Competition, the Classical Music prize from the City Münster and WDR and the first prize at the International Grotrian Steinweg Competition.

 

As a finalist of the German Music Competition in 2015, the pianist was awarded a scholarship which includes several concerts in Germany.

 

Marie Rosa Günter also has an intensive commitment to chamber music, joining cellist Stanislas Kim as prizewinner of the 8th International Swedish Duo Competition and the 12e Concours de Musique de Chambre de Lyon.

The duo´s debut CD featuring works by Bach, Beethoven and Franck was released in 2014, a live recording from Bremen´s Sendesaal.
