Estonia, °1995
First round 2022 : Marcel Johannes Kits
From the age of four, Marcel Johannes Kits showed a great interest in the cello. He began his training in Tallinn, then continued his studies in Germany under Francis Gouton and Jens Peter Maintz. He has mostly performed in his home country, Estonia, and in Europe, (at the Elbphilharmonie, the Boulez Saal, and the Berliner Philharmonie, among other venues) and has also played in St Petersburg, Moscow, and Israel. He has also appeared as a guest at, among other events, the Olympus Festival and the Festpiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. He won first prize at the International Johannes Brahms Competition in Austria in 2016 and at the Enescu Competition in Romania in 2018 and was a semi-finalist of the ARD International Music Competition in 2019. Passionate about chamber music, he has played in a trio since he was nine years old with Robert Traksmann and Rasmus Andreas Raide, with whom he has recorded numerous CDs for the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben, the foundation that loans him the Francesco Ruggieri cello he plays.
