Ugo Mahieux & Olivia Steindler - Piano and Violin Concert - FREE EVENT



Ugo Mahieux & Olivia Steindler - Piano and Violin Concert - FREE EVENT

FREE ticket registration:


In 2015 Ugo Mahieux (piano) and Olivia Steindler (violin) started to collaborate as a duo. They performed concerts through France and Italy and they also toured Latvia for a series of recitals.


Ugo Mahieux was born into an Italian/French family of artists in Napoli. He studied piano at Napoli's San Pietro a Majella Music Conservatory and art history at the Federico II University. He also studied harpsichord and baroque music with Antonio Florio.

As an accompanist, he perfected his knowledge under the guidance of great artists such as Irene Kudela, Margaret Singer, Robert Kettelson and Enza Ferrari. In 2008 he entered the Atelier Lyrique of the Paris National Opera as a young artist, where he started his career as music staff for main stage productions at the Palais Garnier and Opéra Bastille; he also entered as a recital partner in other concert venues.

Maestro Mahieux has been engaged as music staff at many other companies and festivals in Europe and United States; he has worked with and coached well-known artists, among others, Cecilia Bartoli, Natalie Dessay, Olga Borodina, Isabel Leonard, Patrizia Ciofi, Sandrine Piau, Ludovic Tezier, Lawrence Zazzo and Michael Spyres. As a pianist and harpsichordist, he has worked and performed under distinguished conductors such as Emmanuel Villaume, Marc Minkowski, Emmanuelle Haïm, Daniel Oren, Jean-Christophe Spinosi and Thomas Hengelbrock.


Olivia Steindler, Italian violinist, was born in Germany into a family with musical traditions: her great-grandfather and her great-uncle were Bernard and Paul Dessau. She plays a German violin, Jacob Stainer school from 1682. She began learning the violin at the age of three; a year later she was admitted to the Akademie für Tonkunst in Darmstadt, where she had her first public performances.

Participating in three consecutive Jugend Musiziert bi-annual competitions in Germany, Olivia Steindler won the top prize, each time with honors and a special award for contemporary music. These awards brought her to the attention of composers such as Sofia Gubaidulina and Alfred Schnittke. At the age of thirteen she was admitted to Valery Gradow’s class at Hochschule für Musik in Mannheim from which she graduated in one year. She studied with Franco Gulli, Ivry Gitlis, Pierre Amoyal, Salvatore Accardo, Gérard Poulet, and Yehudi Menuhin.

Since 1996 she has been regularly appointed as a soloist with several important orchestras in Italy, France, Switzerland, Japan and Singapore. In 2002-2003 she toured Asia, playing Paganini's complete music for violin and guitar. That same year she first accomplished her dream of playing in concert Niccolò Paganini's 24 Capricci, thus becoming the first woman and one of the youngest violinists ever to realize this challenge in one evening. Attracted by ancient music instruments, she joined Ensemble Matheus and Jean-Christophe Spinosi for their tours and recordings all around the world: Carnegie Hall NYC, Tschaikovsky Hall in Moscow, Mikhailovskt Theatre in St. Petersburg, Victoria Hall in London, Opera and Theatres of Paris, Vienna, Madrid and Barcelona.
