Violin|Viola & Piano

was founded by Burkhard Maiss and Ji-Yeoun You. The duo formation dedicates itself to the music for violin and piano and – to the same degree – to the sister genre for viola.

Burkhard Maiss

is founding member of both the Jacques Thibaud Trio and the Jacques Thibaud Ensemble. The violinist and violist has been giving concerts around the world for more than twenty-five years. His recitals, CD productions and radio recordings received tremendous acclaim from the international critics. The New York Times described his sound as rich and warm, like full-bodied red wine. Burkhard Maiss plays a violin by Lorenzo Storioni.


Ji-Yeoun You

has internationally reached a fastidious audience by her solo and chamber music performances. In recognition of her contributions to culture she was awarded the Freedom of the City of Yeosu, her Korean hometown. The multi-laureate pianist is teaching at the Berlin University of the Arts as well as at the University of Music Carl Maria von Weber, Dresden.
