Opening concert with the Prussian Chamber Orchestra Soloist: Marko Trivunović (accordion), conductor: Jürgen Bruns

The Prussian Chamber Orchestra has been opening the PUTBUS FESTSPIELE in its rousing way for many years. This time, conductor Jürgen Bruns has put together an unusual and exciting program with the promising accordion soloist Marko Trivunović.

The Prussian Chamber Orchestra (PKO) was founded in 1993 as a young, innovative and flexible ensemble. The ensemble is based in Prenzlau, in the heart of the Uckermark.

Just as the Uckermark sees itself as an antithesis to the metropolis of Berlin, the PKO sees itself as an agile and flexible counterpart to the region's major orchestras.

At the start of the 2019/2020 season, Jürgen Bruns took over the artistic direction as Music Director and Chief Conductor of the ensemble.

The Prussian Chamber Orchestra is at home on international stages, regularly produces CDs and works regularly with broadcasters such as rbb and Deutschlandfunk Kultur.

The twelve permanent musicians from seven nations who form the core of the ensemble are a dozen soloists who have dedicated themselves to music together and perform at the highest level with an enormous stylistic diversity.

Marko Trivunović, accordion

Born in Novi Sad (Serbia), Marko Trivunović received his first accordion lessons at the age of six. He initially studied with Vladimir Blagojević at the University of Kragujevac and transferred to the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich in 2018, where he completed his master's degree with Krassimir Sterev. In 2022, he completed his concert exam at the Freiburg University of Music in the class of Teodoro Anzellotti.

During his studies, Marko Trivunović attended masterclasses with accordionists such as Hugo Noth, Stefan Hussong, Friedrich Lips, Geir Draugsvoll and Iñaki Alberdi. He has taken part in renowned courses for contemporary music (Darmstadt Summer Courses, Impuls - International Ensemble and Composers Academy for Contemporary Music in Graz) and worked with composers such as Rebecca Saunders, Jörg Widmann, Milica Djordjević, Mark Andre, Clara Iannotta and Bernhard Gander. He has performed with the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, the Hessian State Orchestra Wiesbaden, the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Vorarlberg Symphony Orchestra, the Mannheim Philharmonic Orchestra, Ensemble XX. Jahrhundert and Ensemble Oktopus under the direction of conductors such as Alondra de la Parra, Marin Alsop, Baldur Brönnimann, Leo Hussain, Peter Rundel, Leo McFall, Albert Horne, Konstantia Gourzi, Boian Videnoff and Peter Burwik.

Marko Trivunović is a scholarship holder of the German Foundation for Musical Life, the DAAD, the Helene Rosenberg Foundation and the Bavarian Ministry of Science and the Arts, among others.

He performed as a finalist with the Cologne Chamber Orchestra at the German Music Competition 2022 and was awarded a scholarship and a special prize and included in the chamber music concert sponsorship program and the soloist concert sponsorship program
