Amatis Trio Announces New Member

The piano trio welcomes their new pianist Andrei Gologan, who is a protégé of pianist and conductor Sir Andras Schiff


Established in Amsterdam in 2014, the Amatis Trio comprises founding members violinist Lea Hausmann, cellist Samuel Shepherdand now, pianist Andrei Gologan

Gologan succeeds pianist Mengjie Han in the position, who was the third founding member and performed with the trio for the last seven years. 

Born in Romania in 1992, Gologan began playing piano when he was five. Only six months later, he won his first piano competition, and at 14, he made his orchestral debut. 

A graduate of Salzburg’s Mozarteum University studying with Pavel Gililov, Gologan’s other mentors included Iulian Arcadi Trofin, Sir András Schiff, Richard Goode, Claudio Martinez-Mehner, Daniel Barenboim, Ferenc Rados, Gidon Kremer, Gabor Takács-Nagy, and Pamela Frank, among others.

He has won prizes at the International Competition for Young Pianists in Memory of Vladimir Horowitz, Concours International Piano Campus, Sigismund Thalberg International Piano Competition, and the Lions European Musical Competition.

An avid chamber musician, his collaborators include Camerata Salzburg, Kiev Philharmonic Orchestra, and artists Gregory Ahss, Shirley Brill, William Coleman, Volker Jacobsen, Lena Neudauer, and Jennifer Stumm at various festivals.

Gologan will join the Amatis Trio in their upcoming season performances in venues such as London’s Wigmore hall, Palau de la Música Barcelona, and Cologne Philharmonie. 

“The piano trio repertoire is one of the most extraordinary out there: the Brahms, the Schumanns, the Beethovens!” wrote Gologan in a Facebook post.

“I am very much looking forward to exploring it together with Lea and Sam!” he added. “Very exciting times.”
