Biografie

My name is Stiuca Nicolae and I was born on July 12 1996 in Chisinau (capital of Moldova) in a family of musicians.

My parents are both accordion teachers: Petru and Lilia Stiuca. Petru Stiuca is also accordion teacher at “AMTAP” (music academy in Chisinau). At 8 years I began to study accordion at the music school in Chisinau “Alexei Stircea”. At 11 I begun to study piano and at 12 percussion. When I was 15, I entered the best musical High  School in Moldova “Ciprian Porumbescu” where I studied accordion with my father: Petru Stiuca. I played in different orchestras and ensembles like: Accordion ensemble “Magic Accordion”, Violin ensemble (accordion solo), Folc orchestra and Chamber orchestra (accordion solo).Also I have played at the best stages of Moldova, Romania, Hungary, Czech, Germany, and The Netherlands. I have also played at one issue and played music for film.

Now I am in my third bachelor year at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. In one year here, I received from minister of culture: Jet Bussemaker, the Holland Scholarship – The most prestigious scholarship in Holland! I played at different Festivals and concerts in Dordrecht “Bach Festival”, in Arnhem, Amsterdam etc. Also I took the second prize at “ Novam national accordion competition 2016” in Amstelveen in category Superior B.
