Remus Rîmbu is currently a masters student at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, where he studies with Liviu Prunaru. He completed his Bachelor degree at the Music and Arts Private University of Vienna under Nicolas Koeckert.

As a six years old pianist he received an honourable mention in the music competition Martian Negrea in Ploiesti, Romania. He then began his studies on violin, and received prizes at various competitions, including the first prize at the International Sigismund Toduta Competition in Deva, Romania (2012), the Grand Prize at both the J. S. Bach Festival in Cluj-Napoca (2012) and Viva la Musica in Zalau, Romania (2013), first Prize at the Arthur Grumiaux Competition in Namur, Belgium (2015) and the second prize at the Gianluca Campochiaro International Music Competition in Sicily (2015).

He performed as a soloist with many Romanian orchestras.

His debut on the international stage began with his successful participation in the Cohilia International Festival in Greece and as a soloist with the Clark College Orchestra in Vancouver, Washington (USA) in 2010, where he returned in 2015 and 2017. In 2011 he performed a series of recitals in the United States, where Stephen Clapp – former violin teacher and Dean Emeritus of the Juilliard School of Music in New York, who passed away in 2014 - noted: ‘Remus plays with passion and excellence and is one of the most effective communicators of musical joy.’
