Mozart in Vienna

Gottlieb Wallisch

CKD352


    “Evidence of fingers exceptionally vigorous, nimble and purposeful.” - BBC Music Magazine
    “He plays with a light, sparkling touch and singing melodies, with tasteful and unexaggerated expression.” - Fanfare
For more than ten years Gottlieb Wallisch has captivated audiences from many of the world's major concert platforms with his playing.   Wallisch's debut on Linn Records, ‘Mozart in Vienna’, features a selection of Mozart's best-loved works, all composed in Vienna during one of the composer's most fruitful periods: 1781-1791

• Wallisch expertly demonstrates Mozart's quintessential style: his skill at improvisation (Fantasie KV 397), his humour (Variationen KV 455) and his more intimate, melancholic side (Rondo KV 511).

• Two of Mozart's finest sonatas are also included and they allow Gottlieb to display his deep understanding of the music of his fellow Austrian, as well as his impressive technical and interpretative skills.

• The Viennese pianist has performed this repertoire internationally to great acclaim: “Wallisch proved himself to be an exceptional performer of Mozart.” (Neue Ruhr Zeitung).

• Recorded in St George’s, Bristol, which is regarded as one of the best chamber venues in Britain, Gottlieb gives a stylish and individual performance of some of Mozart's finest piano works.

• Born into a family of Viennese musicians, Gottlieb Wallisch is a competition prizewinner and a respected artist in the Viennese piano tradition.

• Gottlieb Wallisch has performed with many leading orchestras including the Vienna Philharmonic, the Vienna Symphony, the Stuttgart Chamber and the Zagreb Philharmonic.

• Gottlieb participated in the international cycle “Rising Stars” and gave solo recitals in Musikverein Vienna, Konzerthus-Stockholm, Societé Philharmonique in Brussels, the Athens Concert Hall and the Carnegie Hall, New York. Numerous concert tours have also led him to Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Spain, Germany and Switzerland.

• The Austrian ORF, Radio France International and BBC London have recorded numerous radio and television performances with him.
