Characterized by artistic authenticity, dynamic interaction and attention to detail in their playing, the Trio Marvin is one of the leading chamber music ensembles in Germany.
The Trio Marvin was founded in Leipzig in 2016 by pianist Vita Kan, cellist Marius Urba and violinist Marina Grauman. Only a few months later, the trio won 1st prize at the 2017 Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Conservatory Competition in Berlin, which laid the foundation for the ensemble‘s musical career. In the years that followed, the ensemble received awards at numerous international competitions. In 2018 they won the “Grand Prize” at the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition in Australia and a few months later became prizewinners of the ARD International Music Competition.
Concerts in the Berlin Philharmonie and the Berlin Konzerthaus, the Musikverein Graz and the Melbourne Recital Centre followed. Radio broadcasts with ORF, BR, SWR and Deutschlandfunk Kultur as well as concerts at renowned festivals such as the Schwetzinger Festpiele or the Mozartfest Würzburg attest to their busy concert schedule at home and abroad.
The different backgrounds and impulses the trio assimilated during their studies in Germany determine their particular approach to the core classical and romantic literature, especially to composers from the former Soviet Union, whom the musicians hold in high esteem.
