Trio Vier draws inspiration from a dynamic combination of musical genres, including new music,
free improvisation, classical chamber music and traditional jazz, to form a distinct melodic
language all of its own.
Rebekka Wagner received her first violin lessons at the age of five. Influenced by lessons with Hildegard Wind, she completed her violin studies at the Nuremberg University of Music in 2013 with distinction.
What she likes best about her instrument is its wide musical range and versatility, which is why many different projects find their place in her artistic work.
On the one hand, there are projects with the Ventuno Orchestra or work with the International Foundation for the Promotion of Culture and Civilization. On the other hand, she plays in various rock and blues formations, such as Oporto or The See See Riders. Since the beginning of her studies she has been teaching at different schools in the Franconian area.
The cellist Sophia Schulz combines diverse musical genres to create a unique sound, adapted to
each ensemble she performs in. Trained as a classical musician at the Hochschule für Musik Nuremberg with Prof. Markus Wagner, she completed her studies with a focus on Jazz with Prof. Steffen Schorn. Her special interest in interdisciplinary projects is reflected in her work with Trio
Vier, Theater Pfütze, nö theater and the dance company SETanztheater.
Schulz was awarded the YEHUDI MENUHIN –Live Music Now – Verein Scholarship, the
Deutschlandstipendium and has been a boardmember of the Orchester Ventuno since 2020.
