Alexander Schimpf, Piano

“Maybe they still do exist, the younger music professionals who have gained a following thanks to their musical talent and not because of their extra-musical tabloid antics. In a classical music industry in need of reform, Alexander Schimpf, recent winner of the Vienna Beethoven Piano Competition, could be one of these future heroes …”

Thus the Süddeutsche Zeitung after a piano recital in the Small Auditorium of the Münchner Gasteig. Ever since winning First Prize at the 2008 German Music Competition in the solo piano category and the 2009 Beethoven Competition in Vienna, Alexander Schimpf has made a particular name for himself as a promising young talent in more frequent concert appearance in Germany and abroad.
Born in Göttingen, Germany in 1981, he initially studied piano with Wolfgang Manz in Hanover and subsequently attended the Musikhochschule Dresden with Winfried Apel as well as with Bernd Glemser in Würzburg. French pianist Cécile Ousset has also played an important role in his artistic development.
Alexander Schimpf was selected to perform in the nationwide Young Artists Concerts of the German Music Council for the 2009/2010 season. He has performed at concert venues throughout Germany (including Gasteig München, NDR Hannover, Beethovenhaus Bonn, Oberstdorfer Musiksommer, Heidelberger Frühling, and the Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspiele) as well as in France (Auditorium du Louvre and Salle Cortot in Paris), Italy, Austria, Switzerland and England. Alexander Schimpf has also been featured in performances with the three German broadcasters BR, NDR and SWR, on Austria’s ORF and on Radio France.
