Martti Rousi

Winning the Turku Cello Competition and second prize in the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow have resulted in Finnish-born Martti Rousi appearing as soloist with several Finnish and foreign orchestras. His studies began in Turku with Timo Hanhinen and Seppo Kimanen, and then he continued at the Sibelius Academy as a pupil of Arto Noras. From 1985 to 1986 he had a Fullbright scholarship to study under János Starker at Indiana University in the USA. He has also attended several masterclasses. In addition to pursuing a career as a soloist, Rousi also likes to play chamber music. Rousi has been Artistic Director of the Lemi-Lappeenranta Music Festival, the Turku Music Festival and Sibafest. He holds the post of Professor of Cello at the Sibelius Academy and continues to give masterclasses all over Europe.
