Pauline Johanna Gude, born in 1996 in Lübeck, Germany, is currently attending her fourth year of her Bachelor degree at the University Mozarteum Salzburg with Prof. Giovanni Gnocchi.
She previously studied at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Leipzig with Prof. Peter Hörr and in Hamburg with Prof. Bernhard Gmelin.
Furthermore, she got musical impulses from chamber music classes at the Kronberg Academy, the Cello Academy Rutesheim and from several masterclasses with Prof. Wolfgang Böttcher, Prof. Gregor Horsch, Prof. Stephan Forck, Prof. Troels Svane and Prof. Maria Kliegel.
The young cellist has been performing as a soloist together with the Bergische Philharmoniker and the Loh- Orchester Sondershausen, and was also broadcasted in the radio broadcast “Young Artist of the North German radio”.
Pauline Gude won the first prize of the national German youth competition seven times and has been awarded several other prizes such as the NDR Kulturförderpreis, the Diethard- Wucherpreis and scholarships of Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben, Hamburg Hindemith- Foundation and Marie- Luise Imbusch- Foundation.
Chamber music is especially important to her: She is a permanent member of a piano trio and also performs in other chamber music groups. Contemporary music also plays an important role in her musical life. Thanks to the Stiftung Impulse she got the possibility to perform commissioned compositions.
Pauline Gude plays a Violoncello of Mario Gadda, 1962 from the instrument collection of the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben in Hamburg, Germany.
