Marta Klimasara
Marta Klimasara
In the fall of 2001, Marta Klimasara’s extraordinary musical qualities induced the jury of the ARD competition in Munich to grant her the highest award in the category percussion. At the same competition, the Polish musician also won the audience award due to her charming and dedicated personality. In 1999, the artist, who was 24 years old at the time, won first prize at the "2nd World Marimba Competition" in Japan, as well as the second prize at the "3rd Krzysztof Penderecki International Competition of Contemporary Music" in Krakow.
Marta Klimasara is a guest performer at international festivals in Warsaw, Paris, Vienna, St. Petersburg, and Chicago and has already produced radio and TV recordings with the Bavarian, the Hessian and the Südwest broadcasting stations. Since the fall of 2004, Marta Klimasara is a professor for percussion at the State University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart.
Jürgen Spitschka
Contemporary music was Jürgen Spitschka’s precursor to classical music. Only at the age of fourteen, after being educated in jazz and popular music, was his interest in classical percussion stirred. After studying in Munich, he passed his artist’s diploma with distinction at the State University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart.
Due to his musical and stylistic variety, he gives guest performances as a chamber music partner in all kinds of instrumentations on international stages.
Jürgen Spitschka is a percussionist at the Baden-Württemberg State Theater in Stuttgart, and has a teaching assignment for orchestra percussion at the Stuttgart State University of Music.
