Marie Rosa Günter was born in Braunschweig in 1991 and grew up in the rural idyll of the nearby village of Lucklums. She is the daughter of Birgit and Stefan Günter, a social worker and a locomotive engineer. Although she preferred singing as a child, Wolfgang Zill introduced her to piano playing at the Braunschweig Music School at the age of six. Under the guidance of his brother, the flutist Hans-Martin Zill, Marie Rosa Günter had the opportunity to play chamber music right from
She attended her first international masterclass in 2016 with Matti Raekallio in Suolahti, Finland. A chain of unfortunate coincidences (invalid airline tickets of all pianists and teachers at the Hanover airport) eventually led to a chain of fortunate coincidences (a spontaneous, clandestine effort to purchase a ticket for the youngest of the group) to her studies with Matti Raekallio at the Hanover University of Music’s Institute for Young Talent Development.
Further studies with Bernd Goetzke progressed steadily for many years, culminating in an Artist Diploma exam with the Göttingen Symphony Orchestra in 2021. Under the direction of Nicholas Milton, Marie Rosa performed Prokofiev’s First Piano Concerto.
Apart from training as a soloist, the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media offered excellent opportunities to further her education. Of note here are the studies with Markus Becker (chamber music), Jan Phillip Schulze (lied accompaniment), and Zvi Meniker (early music), which opened a variety of doors in all directions of the musical world. The cellist Stanislas Kim, as well as Trio Zilia, Trio Ovide, Kahlo Piano Quartet and Trio Faust became permanent chamber music partners.
After completing two years of studies with Benedetto Lupo at the “Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia” in Rome, Marie Rosa Günter subsequently took up a teaching position at the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media – with a diploma and new language skills in tow.
Kosmos und Fragmet is the second with the GENUIN label, following the debut CD with Bach’s Goldberg Variations. The Carl Bechstein Stiftung, as well as the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben, have been generous sponsors.
Besides her activities as a musician, Marie Rosa Günter is actively interested in languages, literature, drawing, painting, and playing soccer. Currently, the pianist lives in Hanover and Madrid.
Duo Beck-Günter has been performing regularly with programs specially conceived for the occasion the two have made appearances at MEAM Barcelona of the Ellwanger Schlosskonzerte, and finally on the MS Europa, playing as part of the Kahlo with Stanislas Kim and David Tobin at their side.
