Till Fellner in Stuttgart to present a multifaceted project

Following celebrated concerts in Chicago with Bernhard Haitink, Till Fellner will join the Staatsorchester Stuttgart in May and June to present a project that will see him in a wide range of roles. First, he will play Beethoven’s 4th piano concerto under Sylvain Cambreling. This work marked Beethoven’s creation of the symphonic piano concert genre in 1806. The musical style and unity of the individual movements resemble that of a symphony and confront the soloist with substantial challenges. Till Fellner’s powerful and brilliant interpretation of the work is sure to impress.

Together with the musicians of the Staatsorchester Stuttgart, he will perform Brahms’ piano quintet in f minor, of which Clara Schumann said the following: “This work leaves me feeling as if I had read an utterly tragic story.” Till Fellner instils this tragic character in every note, skilfully crafting a dramatic arc that captivates listeners from the first note to the very last one.

In the two following days, Till Fellner will collaborate with young singers from the Opernstudio Stuttgart in master courses to prepare works such as Beethoven’s “To the Distant Beloved” as well as select songs from Schumann’s song cycle op. 39. His in-depth collaboration with tenor Mark Padmore combined with his extensive experience teaching as a professor at the Zurich University of the Arts mean young musicians will benefit both from his expertise and wealth of experience.
