Born in the city of Dzerzhinsk in the Nizhny Novgorod region, Ekaterina Gorynina received her first music lessons from her mother. At the age of 16, she joined the cello group of the Vladimir Symphony Orchestra, where she gained first experiences in orchestral playing and studied a significant part of the orchestral repertoire for three years. She received her university degree from the State Academy Maimonides, Moscow and the Academy of Music, Dresden.
Ekaterina's creative development and technical improvement was strongly influenced by two cellists of the Russian and German schools: O. BUGAEV (Moscow cellist/teacher) and M. WILDE, cellist of the Staatskapelle Dresden.
In addition to her main instrument, the cello, Ekaterina is enthusiastic for another instrument, the viola da gamba, and in 2018 began studying (master's degree) at the University of the Arts in Berlin.
