HAKON AUSTBO

Of Norwegian origin, Håkon Austbø performed extensively in his homeland before continuing his studies at the Paris Conservatoire and the Ecole Normale de Musique. In 1970 he was the first non-French artist to win the Concours National de la Guilde Française des Artistes Solistes in Paris, and in 1971 he gained international attention when a unanimous jury awarded him the first prize of the Olivier Messiaen Competition for Contemporary Music in Royan, France. Håkon Austbø furthered his studies at the Juilliard School, New York, at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik, Munich, and in London. He was a prizewinner of the international Munich competition (in piano duo with Marina Horak, 1974), of the Ravel Competition in Paris (1975), and, as a member of Trio du Nord, of the UNESCO International Rostrum, Bratislava (1975). Based in the Netherlands for more than 30 years, he has recently returned to his native country and continues to enjoy an extensive solo career throughout Europe, America and Asia. Håkon Austbø received the prize of the Norwegian music critics in 1989 and was chosen Performer of the Year in Norway in 1992. In 2003 he received the prestigious Grieg Prize. Beside his intense performing schedule, he is professor of piano at the University of Stavanger.
