Austrian pianist Till Fellner’s international career was launched in 1993 when he won the prestigious Clara Haskil International Piano Competition in Vevey, Switzerland. Over more than two decades, he has become a sought-after guest with many of the world’s most important orchestras and at the major music centers and festivals of Europe, America, and Japan.
In addition to his New York Philharmonic debut in these performances, during the 2017–18 season Till Fellner returns to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for a subscription week with frequent collaborator Manfred Honeck. In Europe he appears with Le Concert Olympique, Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg, and Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. He performs recitals in Paris, Vienna, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, and France.
Last season, he performed Mozart and Beethoven piano concertos with the Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Montreal, and Vienna symphony orchestras, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, and London’s Philharmonia Orchestra. In 2015 he made his Berlin Philharmonic debut under Bernard Haitink.
Mr. Fellner regularly collaborates with British tenor Mark Padmore, with whom he premiered a work by Hans Zender in 2016 and toured Japan in February 2017. This collaboration continues in 2017–18, with Lieder recitals in Vienna and Salzburg. In addition, he regularly performs with the Belcea Quartet.
An exclusive ECM recording artist, Mr. Fellner has released the First Book of J.S. Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier, as well as J.S. Bach’s Two- and Three-Part Inventions and Beethoven’s Piano Concertos Nos. 4 and 5 with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and Kent Nagano.
