Romanian double bassist Petru Iuga is one of the most successful musicians of his generation. While still studying in Romania, he was spotted by Yehudi Menuhin and Alberto Lucy, who reported him to the Menuhin International Music Academy in Gstaad (Switzerland). He continued his studies at the Higher School of Music and Art in Berlin and at the Paris Conservatory, where he became a member of the Paris Chamber Ensemble and soon afterwards the first double bassist of the Munich Chamber Orchestra. Petru Yuga is the recipient of numerous accolades from world double bass competitions, enabling him to have a worldwide career and tour as a soloist with prestigious European orchestras, including the London Symphony Orchestra. He works as a professor at the University of Mannheim and is a guest lecturer at the School of Music in Lausanne (Switzerland). He teaches numerous master courses around the world in Russia, Italy, Portugal, Israel, Japan, Uruguay, China and Canada. He records several CDs as a chamber musician and often collaborates with top music names. His invention “Ergo bass” is used by many musicians around the world and he is a kind of support for double bass players who helps them play in an ergonomic and physically better position.
