The Berlin-based Trio Marvin was founded in 2016 in Leipzig by pianist Vita Kan, cellist Marius Urba and violinist Marina Grauman. Only a few months later, it was awarded first prize at the ‘Mendelssohn-Bartholdy Competition 2017’ in Berlin. This success formed a solid foundation for the young trio who have already cultivated an inimitable fusion in their short time together.
All three trio members are prize winners of various international competitions, pursuing their own busy concert careers both in Germany and abroad. Originating from Russia and CIS Countries, they have inherited a deep understanding of the music of Shostakovich and other USSR-born geniuses, while collaboration with such musicians as Jacques Ammon (Celloproject) or Gerald Fauth (Trio ex aequo), and participation in various workshops enhanced their experience and professional skills.
In September 2017, Trio Marvin won second prize and two special prizes at the Concorso Internazionale ‘Premio Trio di Trieste’ in Italy.
