Gabor Vosteen is a recorder player and comedian.
He studied recorder at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hannover with Prof. Dr. Ulrich Thieme and took masterclasses with Prof. Michael Schneider. He then continued with Clown Studies at the National Circus School in Budapest and Physical Theatre at Ecole Lassaad in Brussels.
Following his studies he took his unique mixture of virtuosic recorder playing and visual, non-verbal comedy on the road, touring festivals, concert houses, cabarets and circuses, sharing his enthusiasm for making music with young and old alike.
His shows have led to collaborations with the Musikkollegium Winterthur, the South-West German Philharmonie Konstanz, members of the Leipzig Gewandhausorchester, and have resulted in performances at the KKL Lucerne, Kongresshaus Zurich and Konzerthaus Dortmund as well as at the Musica Antiqua Festival in Bozen, Italy. Gabor Vosteen was also the main act with the Circus Roncalli in the SaltoVitale show, has performed in cabarets and festivals in Germany and worldwide, and has appeared on television in shows such as Le Plus Grand Cabaret du Monde in France and The Slammer Returns for Children’s BBC in Manchester.
Gabor Vosteen has been awarded numerous prizes across the world, including the Audience Prize at Tuttlinger Krähe in 2014, first prize at the Koblenz Gaukler- und Kleinkunstpreis in 2014 and the Audience Prize and second prize from the jury at the European Cabaret competition Niederstätter surPrize in Bozen. In January 2017 Gabor Vosteen and Fumagalli received a joint prize at the 1st Grand Prix der Artisten in Hannover. He was also a finalist in the Hamburger Comedy Pokal and the WQXR Classical Comedy Contest on Broadway in New York, where the former IMG Artist Director Edna Landau singled him out in her press review as a personal favourite.
