WOLFRAM RIEGER

Wolfram Rieger received his first piano lessons from his parents and later from Konrad Pfeiffer in Regensburg. He soon developed a deep affection for Lied interpretation and therefore continued his studies at the Hochschule für Musik in Munich with the famous Lied pianists Erik Werba and Helmut Deutsch. In 1987, after winning a diploma with distinction, he attended several masterclasses with Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, and began teaching at the Munich Hochschule für Musik. In 1991 he started his own Lieder class for singers and pianists, and in 1993 and 1994 coached a Lieder class at the Berlin Hanns Eisler Hochschule für Musik. In 1995 he left his Lieder class, becoming professor of a Lied class at the Berlin Hochschule in 1998. He has frequently accompanied masterclasses by Brigitte Fassbaender, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Hans Hotter, and since 1991 has regularly held masterclasses throughout Europe and Japan. Wolfram Rieger frequently appears both as a recital accompanist and chamber musician at many important venues in Europe, North America, and the Middle and Far East, collaborating with such renowned artists as Brigitte Fassbaender, Barbara Bonney, Juliane Banse, Thomas Hampson, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Olaf Bär, Peter Schreier, Christoph Prégardien, the Cherubini Quartet, the Vogler Quartet, and the Petersen Quartet among many others. His recent engagements have included concerts at the Schubertiade Feldkirch, Schubertiada a Vilabertran, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, London’s Wigmore Hall, New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Vienna Musikverein and Konzerthaus, Salzburg, Schleswig-Holstein and Munich Festivals, Konzerthaus Berlin and Kölner Philharmonie. A prolific recording artist, he is well-represented on numerous CDs. Awards and distinctions include the honorary medal of the Associació Franz Schubert de Barcelona in 1997.
