Gil Sharon (vioara/viola)
Gil Sharon was born in Bucharest, Romania, that he left in 1961, moving to Israel, where he completed his studies with Prof. Partos at the Rubin-Academy in Tel-Aviv, performing at the same time both in many chamber music concerts and as soloist with various Israeli orchestras. In 1969 he moved to the Netherlands, becoming 1st concertmaster of the Limburgs Symfonie Orkest in Maastricht.
His international career began in 1971 with winning the International Emily Anderson Violin Competition in London; he has been ever since present on all important concert scenes in Europe, North-America and Israel, displaying not only the broad and better known, huge violin-repertoire, but offering his public also more unusual, lesser spread works like the Concerto for Violin, Viola, Piano and String-quartet by Chausson, that he performed in Athens together with the pianist Dmitri Sgouros and the Borodin-Quartet, or Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante, that he played together with Shlomo Mintz in Barcelona. His reputation as a musician of chamber-music is wide-spread; he is first violin of the Sharon Quartet and founder of the Amati Ensemble. Gil Sharon is a frequent guest of the Prades aux Champs Élysées-series of the prestigious Thêatre de Champs Élysées in Paris as well as of the Pablo Casals Festival in Prades.
In 1997 Gil Sharon was conferred by Queen Beatrix for his outstanding merits for music in the Netherlands the title of Knight of Oranje-Nassau.
Adriana Winkler (vioara)
From 1997 and until 2007 Adriana Winkler was 1st concert master of the Royal Philharmony in Santiago de Compostela and taught a violin class at the Escuela de Altos Estudios Musicales de Galicia. She has been an award-winning participant in many national and international competitions like the "Tibor Varga"-Competition in 1990 (Sion, Switzerland).
In 2007 she was appointed cultural attaché of the Romanian Embassy in Berlin. Ever since she has in parallel sustained many concerts both as soloist as well as chamber musician (she plays 2nd violin in the Ensemble Contempo Paris) in Romania, Spain, Portugal and Germany.
Catalin Ilea (violoncel)
Catalin Ilea was born in Romania. He started playing the cello at the age of seven in his home town of Cluj. Dimitrie D. Dinicu, who had himself been a pupil of Diran Alexanian, became then his teacher at the Bucharest Academy for Music "Ciprian Porumbescu", where Catalin Ilea finished his studies as head of his class. He completed his studies with Enrico Mainardi, Milos Sadlo and Pierre Fournier.
Catalin Ilea became immediately afterwards first a member and, only very short time later, 1st solo cellist of the Bucharest Philharmonic Orchestra "George Enescu". At only 29 years of age he was also appointed professor for chamber music at the Music Academy in Bucharest.
After choosing West-Germany as his new home in 1977, he once more became 1st solo cellist first with the Wuppertal Symphony Orchestra and later-on with the Philharmonia Hungarica. In 1994 he then became professor for cello at the Universität der Künste in Berlin. His solo-career started with four first prizes at international competitions in Italy, Spain and Romania and has brought him since as a guest to all major concert halls of Europe, North America and Asia. In 1976 he was awarded the Premio CIAC (Centro Italiano de Arte i Cultura) in Rome. In 1992 and 2001 he was again awarded with two distinctions of the press for his outstanding solo performances. 2005 he received the "Ordre pour le Mérite" in the rank of commander. His numerous recordings include the Bach-Suites for cello solo and Sonatas for cello and piano, the Brahms-Sonatas, the Enescu-Sonatas and Symphonie Concertante, the concertos by Schumann, Lalo, Offenbach, Vieru etc., as well as a large variety of chamber and contemporary music.
He is frequently appearing both as a soloist with renowned symphony orchestras and as a chamber musician in major festivals all over the world, and his presence is requested in international master classes and juries of famous competitions such as the Tchaikovsky-, Casals- and Brahms-Competition.
