The musical career of this native Romanian first began with his involvement in the Transylvania State Philharmonic Orchestra in Cluj-Napoca. He then became solo contrabassist in the Orchestra Internazionale d'Italia - and from 1992 to 2003, finally solo contrabassist of the Munich Philharmonic. At the same time, Dorin Marc taught from 1998 at the Hochschule für Musik in Nuremberg, which appointed him in 2003 to a professorship. Both in his home country, where he had studied at the University of Music in Bucharest, and internationally, this musician has been awarded numerous prizes, including the Munich ARD Music Competition Special Prize of the jury in 1979 and the second prize in 1985. Dorin Marc has performed all over Europe, regularly gives masterclasses and is a sought-after juror. His students are laureates of international contrabass competitions and have also been successful at the ARD competition as well as at other competitions.
