Richard Ruzicka (1994) started taking piano lessons at the early age of five. Together with his brothers he played many international concerts as a trio, e.g. at the brazilian opera house of Manaus, in the A.N. Scriabin Memorial Museum in Moskow, at benefiz events of the UNESCO, the „Hannelore Kohl Stiftung“ and many more.
Over the years, his profound training in classical music was enriched by his practical experience in the fields of Jazz, electronic music, metal, etc. While still at school, he picked up his studies of composition with Prof. von Bose at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich, broadening his horizon to the field of Avantgarde music. His musical style is often marked by fusions of those various backgrounds.
In 2013 Richard Ruzicka started studying film scoring with Prof. Gerd Baumann at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich. Few months later, he was nominated for the Golden Eye „Best International Film Music 2014“ at the 10. film music competition of the Zurich Film Festival. At the same time he started writing the music for his first cinema film „LENALOVE“. Since then he is working on many other projects, amongst others he composed the score for four episodes of Germany’s most popular TV crime series „Tatort“ while he was still in university. This resulted in many collaborations with well-known directors as Rainer Kaufmann and Max Färberböck. In 2018 he won the „Rolf-Hans Müller“ film music award for his music for the episode „Nachtdienst“ from the popular TV series „Polizeiruf 110“.
