Marek Pavelec (*1989, Czech Rep.), described as one of the most expressive violinists of his generation, started playing the violin at the age of 7. After studies at Pilsen Conservatory (prof. J. Holotova) and Vienna Music University (prof. J. Pospichal), he became a student of a legendary Russian pedagogue Zakhar Bron in Zurich, Switzerland. Besides the regular studies, he also took part in masterclasses of significant musicians such as Julia Fischer or Ida Haendel.
Marek Pavelec is a laureate of the International Vaclav Huml Violin Competition (Zagreb, 2013), the International Camillo Sivori Violin Competition (Cosenza, 2013), the Vaclav Hudecek Academy in Luhacovice (2010) and the National Competition of Czech Conservatories (2008). Besides many recordings for the Czech Radio, he has also been invited to Madrid to shoot a classical music show "Jóvenes Solistas" for Mezzo TV.
As a soloist, Marek Pavelec has performed in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Czechia, Croatia, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, United Arab Emirates and Japan, accompanied by various philharmonic orchestras (Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra, Bratislava Chamber Philharmonic, Klassikphilharmonie Hamburg, Croatian Radiotelevision Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonic Orchestra of Central Saxony, Symphony Orchestra of Cologne Music University, Pilsen Philharmonic, Bohuslav Martinu Symphony Orchestra Zlin, Karlsbad Symphony Orchestra).
When he is not performing on classical music stages worldwide, Marek Pavelec often shares his skills in major music clubs (Kaufleuten, Vior, Aura) using the electric violin. His ability continues from performing practised pieces to immediate improvisation making him a desirable contact with bands and DJs of all styles.
