Background and activities

Polish born Anna Gebert has enjoyed a broad career as a violinist. Her areas of competence range from early baroque to contemporary music, chamber music to major orchestral repertory. Anna was from a young age educated in the Russian school of violin, primarily by Grazyna Zeranska, Igor Bezrodny, Zinaida Gilels and Zoria Chikmurzaeva. Followed by studies in Freiburg with Magdalena Rezler, Munich with Ana Chumachenco, Indiana University with Miriam Fried and Stanley Ritchie, and the Karajan Academy of the Berlin Philharmonic with concertmaster Guy Braunstein.

She has appeared at chamber festivals around the world, including Kuhmo, Ravinia, Orford, and Trondheim to name a few.  In addition, she performed for years with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and made numerous guest leader appearances with the Helsinki and Stockholm Philharmonic, London Symphony Orchestra, Cologne Radio, Frankfurt, Stockholm, Bonn and Munich Opera. Two years as a full-time substitute with the Berlin Philharmonic led to her appointment as assistant concertmaster in the Cologne Gürzenich Orchestra. Anna is currently associate professor at the Trondheim Music Conservatory and concertmaster of the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra.
