Pablo Griggio, Violin
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Pablo Griggio began his studies of violin at the age of 11. At the age of 15, he started studying at the Buenos Aires Conservatory “Astor Piazzolla” under the guidance of nationally renowned violinist Daniel Robuschi. Since 2012, Pablo has studied at the Cleveland Institute of Music under the tutelage of Czech violinist Ivan Zenaty. As a member of the Ignaz String Quartet, his chamber music tutors include the members of the Cavani Quartet and Peter Salaff.
As an active performer, Pablo has received numerous prizes. He was awarded a Honorable Mention in the CIM concerto competition during the spring semester of 2015 as well as 1st prize in the National Repertory Orchestra violin concerto competition in 2014, granting him the opportunity to play with both orchestras. In addition, he has also received 2nd prize and the AMIA prize at the Argentine Hebrew Foundation Competition in 2013.
Before moving to Cleveland, Pablo held a position in Argentina’s National Symphony Orchestra for two years. He also served as concertmaster of the Buenos Aires Academic Orchestra for three years, and performed as a soloist during five different occasions under the batons of Carlos Calleja, Cecilia Castagneto, Carlos David Jaimes and Luis Belforte.
During the years he lived in Buenos Aires, Griggio performed in master classes for Vadim Gluzman, Shlomo Mintz, Ilya Kaler and Elmar Oliveira, between others. As a member of the chamber music program at CIM and the Intensive Quartet Seminar, Pablo has also participated in chamber music masterclasses for Roger Tapping, Donald Weilerstein, and Vivian Hornik Weilerstein.
Pablo Griggio’s career would not be possible without the generous support granted by the Mozarteum Argentino through the prestigious scholarships: “Teresa Grüneisen" (2015), “Fondo de Becas (2014)”, and “Jeannette Arata de Erize" (2013).
