'Saftstationen - Damme'


Sylvie Gazeau, Jakob Hornbachner & Trio Vitruvi

Born in Orleans, France, Sylvie Gazeau studied music at the Nice Conservatory. Following the advice of the great master violinist Henryk Szeryng, she subsequently began studying at the Conservatory of Paris, with Gabriel Bouillon and Joseph Calvet. She has won numerous awards at the biggest competitions in the world and is the recipient of the Georges Enesco award as the Meilleure violoniste de l'année, "Violinst of the Year".


Through her long career as a soloist and chamber musician, she has also been a concert master at Melos Ensemble, and a soloist at Ensemble Intercontemporain,

as well as with Ivaldi Quartet.


Since 1985 she has taught violin and chamber music at the Conservatoire Nationale Superieur de Musique et de Danse Paris, and from 1998 held the title of professor.

Jakob Hornbachner was born in Austria and received hours of violin and singing before he started studying at double bass at Stanislaw Pasierski and Ernst Weissensteiner at the Art University in Graz. He often gives concerts as bassist in the Wiener Philharmoniker, Wiener Symphoniker and is firmly committed to the Bruchner Orchestra Linz. He has played in famous concert halls such as Wiener Musikverein, Carnegie Gall, Teatro della Scala, the historic theater at Ephesos and Suntory Hall.


Jakob Hornbachner is next to his assets as orchestral musician, often soloist and chamber musician in Austria.

Trio Vitruvi is one of Denmark's most promising and sought-after chamber ensembles. Since the trio's debut in 2013 and superior victory in the DR Chamber Music Competition in 2014, there has to a degree been a bid for the three charismatic young musicians - both at home and outside Denmark's borders.


In spring 2018, the trio had its debut from Det Kgl. The Danish Academy of Music's soloist class, the next day, they flew to the United States on a tour that was crowned by debut on April 17 in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. The same day, the trio's first CD was released on the prestigious American record company Bridge Records.

The CD contains Schubert's large E-flat major Piano Trio and "Notturno".
