Martin Stadtfeld

Martin Stadtfeld’s career began with a piano from a clearance sale, and by the age of seven, his professional aspirations were already formed: to be a concert pianist. Early on, he studies the rules and secrets of counterpoint and harmony, and enters the class of Lev Natochenny as a young student in Frankfurt. During this time, he began to make a stir in competitions, winning prizes in Paris, Bolzano and Leipzig, and in 2002, won First Prize at the Bach Competition.

This is an award with special meaning, for the music of Johann Sebastian Bach is for the pianist the Cape Canaveral of music – from here all paths lead to the cosmos of musical history. It’s no wonder then that Stadtfeld’s first CD recording is like a rocket. The 22-year-old pianist began his recording career with one of the most delicate works of the entire piano repertoire, Bach’s “Goldberg Variations”, just as Glen Gould had with the same label. Lauded in the press worldwide, Martin Stadtfeld has become at home on the world’s leading concert stages and as guest with major orchestras and festivals.

Success has not gone to his head, bound by the laws of the market. On the contrary, he has remained easy and down to earth – whether he is practicing at the local piano studio in the middle of the Ruhr area, composing concert programs or communicating with audiences. “Music works very directly on us. Simple harmonies can spark something in all of us. This is why music stands for humanity, for universal feelings such as comfort and hope – it stands for a constant discussion with ourselves.”

Martin Stadtfeld’s next challenge already awaits him – to learn the treasures of the past and to create something new. His own first composition, a cycle of conversations with Bach’s music, will form part of the upcoming seasons’ programs.
