Till Fellner

“There are pianists who can not do much with Mozart’s piano works. And there are artists like the Viennese Till Fellner: musicians whose sound and musical understanding seems almost made for Mozart. Fellner’s interpretation is slim and light, his cantabile shining with brightness” (Berliner Morgenpost, December 7 2015). At his debut performance with the Berliner Philharmoniker under Bernard Haitink he elated audiences as well as critics when playing Mozart’s piano concerto in c major in December 2015.

For more than two decades, the Austrian pianist Till Fellner has become a sought-after guest with many of the world’s most important orchestras and at the major music centres of Europe, USA and Japan, as well as numerous festivals. He has collaborated with conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Herbert Blomstedt, Semyon Bychkov, Christoph von Dohnányi, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Sir Charles Mackerras, Kurt Masur, Kent Nagano, Jonathan Nott, Vasily Petrenko, Claudius Traunfellner and Hans Zender, among many others.

In the field of chamber music, Till Fellner regularly collaborates with the British tenor Mark Padmore, with whom he also played the world premiere of a composition by Hans Zender in January 2016, and took on tour to Japan in 2017. This collaboration will continue into the 2017/18 season with song recitals in Vienna and Salzburg, among others. Furthermore he has performed numerous times with the Belcea Quartet.

Over the past few years he has dedicated himself to two milestones of the piano repertoire: the Well-Tempered Clavier of Johann Sebastian Bach and the Piano Sonatas of Ludwig van Beethoven, having performed the Beethoven cycle from 2008 to 2010 in New York, Washington, Tokyo, London, Paris and Vienna. Contemporary music is also of great importance to him; he has given the world premieres of works by Kit Armstrong, Harrison Birtwistle, Thomas Larcher, and Alexander Stankovski. In 2012, Till Fellner withdrew from performing for a year to devote himself to the study of new repertoire and to deepen his knowledge of composition, literature and film.

The ECM label, for whom Till Fellner is an exclusive recording artist, has released the First Book of the Well-Tempered Clavier and the Two & Three-Part Inventions of J. S. Bach, Beethoven’s Piano Concertos Nos. 4 & 5 with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and Kent Nagano and, most recently, a CD of chamber music by Harrison Birtwistle. In Fall of 2016, a recording of Brahms Piano Quintets with the Belcea Quartet was released on Alpha Classics, and was awarded the Diapason d’Or de l’année.

Till Fellner studied with Helene Sedo-Stadler in Vienna before going on to study privately with Alfred Brendel, Meira Farkas, Oleg Maisenberg, and Claus-Christian Schuster. Since autumn 2013, Till Fellner has been engaged to teach a small circle of students at the University of Arts in Zurich.

In the 2017/18 season, Till Fellner will make his debut with the New York Philharmonic under the direction of Christoph Eschenbach. Further highlights include performances with Le Concert Olympique, the Mozarteumorchester Salzburg, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. In previous seasons, he has performed with among others the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, St. Louis Symphony, Montreal Symphony, the Deutsche Sinfonie-Orchester Berlin, the Vienna Symphony as well as the Philharmonia Orchestra in London.
