Tobias Koch, Piano

Generally considered one of the most versatile and distinguished keyboard players of his generation, he applies himself to historically informed piano playing as well as musicological studies—always aiming to vivaciously and in an unorthodox manner perform all kinds of music using the most appropriate keyboard instrument, be it clavichord, harpsichord, pianoforte, organ, romantic or modern concert grand. He is part of a new generation of musicians that seeks to trace the essence of sound with curiosity and unprejudiced versatility. His repertoire includes with equal implicitness works of Renaissance composers like Orlando Gibbons and avant-garde pieces by Karlheinz Stockhausen. Trained in master-classes in the Düsseldorf Music Academy, in Graz, Vienna and Brussels his comprehensive musical career takes him around all of Europe.
Tobias Koch participates in important festivals as soloist, chamber music partner and vocal accompanist alike. He works as official pianist and coordinator for significant music competitions like Concours Reine Elisabeth Bruxelles and Verbier Academy. He obtained precious artistic inspiration from the pianists David Levine, Roberto Szidon, Jos van Immerseel, Claire Chevallier, Malcolm Bilson and Andreas Staier. Tobias Koch received the Förderpreis Musik der Landeshauptstadt Düsseldorf and scholarships from the DAAD and Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung. Positions as a lecturer at the Johannes-Gutenberg-Universität in Mainz and at the International Summer Academy in Montepulciano, more than seventy radio productions, publications on performance practice, rhetoric and musical aesthetics as well as several CD-recordings complete his musical activity.
With particular affinity for encyclopaedic projects, Tobias Koch cyclically performs the complete piano works of Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, Schumann, Janácek and Schönberg. He is furthermore considered one of the most distinguished Schumann interpreters, particularly in the realm of romantic performance practice.
