Greg Tuske was born in 1990 in South Australia to Hungarian parents, both musicians. He studied cello with Barbara Yelland and later with Niall Brown, a former Australian String Quartet cellist.

At the age of 11, he received a single studies scholarship at the University of Adelaide. He has won many competitions, was awarded the David Bishop cello medallion, a State Prize for the most outstanding cellist 16 years and under, Young Performers’ Award second prize for the string concerto competition (playing Elgar cello concerto at age 14), Royal Annual Award of “Recitals Australia” for the most outstanding young performer in 2005 and received the Diploma of AMUSA at age 15.

His family then returned to Hungary where Greg continued his musical studies at the Franz Liszt Academy, under the renowned cellist Perényi Miklós. Obtaining the Bachelor degree, he studied further at the International Menuhin Music Academy in Switzerland. Here he worked and studied with various teachers including Pablo Naveran, Stanimir Tudorov, Niall Brown (again) and also had masterclasses with famous violin teachers such as Liviu Prunaru (Concertmaster at the Royal Concertgebow) and Maxim Vengerov, one of the biggest stars of the violin today. As member of the academy’s Camerata Orchestra, he has performed also in Italy, Germany, Poland, France and Israel.

During his Swiss studies, Greg was a founding member of the prize-winning ‘Quatour Lumiére’ . Prizes won were from the Gianni Bergamo chamber music competition,  the Mozart International String Quartet Competition in Salzburg and also the Wigmore Hall String Quartet Competition’s  ’Jeunesses Musicales Deutchland’ Prize.

Greg worked with the MÁV Symphony Orchestra as a leader of the cello section from 2015 to 2017 in Budapest and then for a year with the Hungarian National Philharmonic as a tutti cellist.
Currently Greg is keen to establish his career in Adelaide as a soloist, a chamber musician, and an orchestral cellist.
