“Knauer manages to gice such an impression of spontaneity that he never seems to cover the same ground twice. His playing is unusually flighty and light-fingered; with something of the effortless grace of a darting bird.” (The Times)
At the 1999 Festival of Colmar that was dedicated to Leonard Bernstein, the fiery temperament of Sebastian Knauer, a former student of Andras Schiff and Alexis Weissenberg, created a sensation. This German pianist has compiled an impressive discography that has received showers of positive international critiques: his disk with the Camerata Salzburg has been lauded as one of the best recent recordings of Mozart! He is equally at ease interpreting Haydn and Mozart as Copland and Gershwin. He is coming back to the Festival of Colmar in Mozart’s final Concerto for Piano.
