Marc Gruber

Born in 1993, Marc Gruber discovered the horn at the age of 4, and now twenty years later, he stands as a model of virtuosic, timeless performance.

The hornist won Second Prize at the International ARD Competition and was awarded the Brüder-Busch-Sonderpreis as well as the Audience Prize. In 2013, he was named a fellow of the renowned Mozart Gesellschaft in Dortmund. He also won prizes in the Lions European Music Competition, the Süddeutschen Kammermusikwettbewerbs and was in 2010 Fellow of the Internationale Musikakademie Frankfurt. He was also the first-ever brass musician to win the Debut um elf prize.

As soloist, he has appeared with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Prague Radio Orchestra, the Düsseldorfer Symphony and the Württembergischen Philharmonie Reutlingen. With this orchestra, he made his debut CD performing Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante for four solo winds and orchestra. As part of the Debut in Deutschlandfunk Kultur, he recently made his debut with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, performing Glière’s Horn Concerto.

At age 25 Marc Gruber has been Solo Horn with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra since April 2016, a post he previously held between 2014-2016 with the Beehovenorchester Bonn, the youngest ever solo horn in the orchestra. He’s toured extensively with orchestras such as the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie and the European Union Youth Orchestra in China, Japan, Korea and all over Europe.

Gruber is a permanent member of the Monet Wind Quintet, which received a scholarship from the German Music Competition 2016 and was awarded a special prize. In 2017, the quintet was a laureate at the Lyon International Chamber Music Competition and has since performed in Germany and Europe. As a chamber music partner, Marc Gruber also performed with renowned ensembles and soloists such as the Schumann Quartet, the Linos Ensemble, the Mannheim String Quartet and hr-Brass at national and international festivals.

Marc Gruber was a young student of Professor Joachim Pöltl in Düsseldorf and then continued studies with Professor Paul van Zelm in Cologne. Further tutelage came from Hermann Baumann, Erich Penzel, Prof. Christian Lampert und Froydis Ree Wekre.
