Impressions of our concert series
With the opening concert by Haiou Zhang and the Philharmonic Quartet of the Berliner Philharmoniker, the classic series in the Öschberghof was officially and musically opened at the end of August. A highlight was the Piano Festival on the last weekend in September. Seven concerts were held as part of the Piano Festival under the direction of music director Haiou Zhang. Six young talents showed their skills at the piano in front of a top-class jury in order to win the first Piano Award presented by the Öschberghof.
The 17 years old Russian pianist Eva Gevorgyan was finally awarded by the jury members. She went to the Chopin Competition in Warsaw right after and acclaimed by both the press as well audience as a finalist. Also the Austrian pianist Philipp Scheucher had his great success as the 2nd prize Laureate at the Beethoven Competition in Vienna. The Öschberghof Klassik Piano Festival is a remarkable experience for all of those young pianists.
At the end of October two virtuosos met at the piano, the Hamburg-born Sebastian Knauer and the star pianist Haiou Zhang. Bach, the sonatas by Mozart and Brahms were played on two pianos. Knauer's solo event "The Mozart Nyman Concert" was also exciting and insightful.
