As prelude of the upcoming Beethoven Year to celebrate his 250 anniversary, we are honored to introduce the German pianist Fabian Müller from Beethoven’s hometown Bonn to perform the”Appassionata” Sonata.
Early as 2013, Fabian Müller attracted an expert audience’s attention for the first time, when he won the prize of the press jury at the Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition in Bolzano.
During the last seasons, Fabian Müller could establish himself as one of the most remarkable German pianists of his generation. In 2015, he was awarded with the 1st Prize at another competition in the SPCN, the Ton und Erklärung by the Association of Arts and Culture of the German Economy at the Federation of German Industries. He also caused a great sensation at the International ARD music competition in Munich 2017, when he not only won 2nd prize in the overall ranking, but was awarded with not less than four additional prizes: The Süddeutsche Zeitung commented on his festival performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3: “This was played eminently clear, transparent, exciting in each phrase and every single tone. To play with such a controlled and round touch, but with fine expression and sense for structure and tension, is a stroke of luck.”
