"The only truth is music." - Jack Kerouac

Gustav Rivinius was the only German musician to be awarded the 1st prize and the gold medal of the International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1990. Since then he has performed as a soloist all over the world with leading musicians, orchestras and conductors. He is equally passionate about chamber music. He founded the Rivinius Piano Quartet, the Trio Gasparo da Salò, the Tammuz Piano Quartet and the Bartholdy Quintet and is a sought-after guest at important music festivals.
He regularly performs with Lars Vogt, Christian Tetzlaff, Antje Weithaas, Isabelle Faust and Sharon Kam, among others, and numerous CD recordings attest to his artistic activity. Gustav Rivinius has been a professor at the Hochschule für Musik Saar for many years. He gives annual master classes and was a juror at the International Tchaikovsky Competition.
