– Violoncello – Sophie Abraham, born in The Netherlands in 1986, has lived in Austria since the age of 15. At the age of 19, she began her cello studies with Rudolf Leopold at the Art University in Graz, which she is currently continuing with Reinhard Latzko at the University of Music in Vienna. She owes further artistic inspiration to Martin Hornstein, Johannes Meissl, Chia Chou, Claus-Christian Schuster, Sophie Hunger, Wallis Bird and young upcoming musicians such as Linnea Olsson and Jennie Abrahamson.
