Artist Spotlight: György Gyivicsán

György Gyivicsán

Professor of Trombone at the University of Szeged in Hungary, Professor Gyivicsán may be most well-known to many for his YouTube videos of the Szeged Trombone Ensemble, which is made up of selected students from within his studio at the University of Szeged. The ensemble recently released its second album, #unlimited.

As a soloist, Mr. Gyivicsán won the international trombone competition in Porcia (Italy) in December 2003. In 2004 he was invited to become a member of the world-famous Slokar Quartet, recording multiple albums and performing throughout the world.

I came to know György’s playing when going down a YouTube hole and coming across his live performance of Roland Szentpali’s Trombone Scenes. At first I was excited that Szentpali wrote something for trombone, but then I listened to this non-stop for weeks.
