SILKE-THORA MATTHIES

Silke-Thora Matthies was born in Gütersloh, in North Rhine-Westphalia, and studied in Detmold with Renate Kretschmar-Fischer and at the Juilliard School of Music in New York with Joseph Kalichstein, winning first prize at the New York Gina Bachauer Competition and further awards in the Budapest Liszt/Bartók Competition, the Bordeaux Jeunes Solistes, and the Cleveland (Ohio) Robert Casadesus Competition. She has recorded music ranging from Domenico Scarlatti to the contemporary and appears as a soloist and recitalist in Germany and abroad. Since 1992 she serves as a professor of piano at the Hochschule für Musik Würzburg in Bavaria and in October 2003 became Rector of the school, leads masterclasses and is often a jury member for international piano competitions.

The pianists Silke-Thora Matthies and Christian Köhn established their piano duo in 1988 while studying with Renate Kretschmar-Fischer at the Detmold Musikhochschule. Already, a year later, they were prizewinners at the German Music Competition in Bonn and at the German Industry Culture Circle. In 1992 they won distinction at the International ARD Music Competition in Munich, the only German prizewinners of the whole contest. Their repertoire includes some three hundred works, ranging from the baroque to the contemporary. They have made numerous concert tours and broadcasts, and contemporary composers including Giselher Klebe, Martin Christoph Redel, Ulrich Leyendecker and Richard Heller have written works for them. They have recorded for Naxos and Marco Polo since 1994, with more than twenty CDs, including the complete piano duo works of Brahms and the complete piano music of Giselher Klebe [8.223712].
