Klára Gibišová

Klara owes her first contact with music to her older sisters, who played the flute and clarinet. She was not yet three years old when she started playing children's songs and Christmas carols. In June 2014, she was taken in by a teacher, Tat'àna Vejvodovà. From one lesson a week she gradually moved on to a large number of private lessons which led her to the first concerts and competitions. Since September 2015 she has been a student at the Ilja Hurnik School of Art, under the intensive care of Professor Vejvodovà.

She has won numerous awards, mostly first prizes and "absolute winners" awards, in major international competitions, such as the Young Pianists Play Steinway&Sons in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, The Prague Junior Note in 2017 and 2019, the Frascati International Piano Competition (Rome) in 2019 and the Virtuosi per musica di pianoforte in 2017. Among many others, she won the International Mozart Competition AMADEUS where she won the Special Jury Prize for the best performance in 2017.

Pablo Bodineau-Acker

Born in December 2007, the only musician in his family, Pablo developed an unusual interest in classical music and opera from an early age. His favourite toy at the age of two was a broomstick to play the cellist for hours. However, it was after a year of playing the violin that he set his heart on the piano which he began playing at the age of 8 in his village school. Starting from his first year, he improvises and composes his first pieces. For his second year, he was lucky enough to be introduced to Serguei Milstein, whose class he joined at the Geneva Conservatory of Music and entered the course of excellence the following year.

Between 2018 and 2020, he wins the first prize with congratulations for his three participations in the Geneva Conservatory competition. In 2019, he won the first prize with congratulations at the Swiss National Youth Competition in duet with David Chen. During his last three years, Pablo has been able to receive encouragement and teachings from great masters such as Pietro Di Maria, Yvan Klansky or Thierry Escaich.

Pablo is now 12 years old, and while continuing his pianistic training, this year he opened up to the organ in the class of Diego Innocenzi. In 2020 he won the first prize with congratulations in the Geneva Conservatory competition. He is also following the improvisation classes of David Marteau and Thomas Delclaud and his improvising qualities allow him to be invited to the improvisation classes of the Geneva University of Music and to share the master classes. In 2019 he won the first prize with congratulations at the Geneva Conservatory improvisation competition.

Passionate about composition since his debut, he has a dream: to have the chance to one day conduct the opera he has just finished composing.
