Born in 1985, Austrian pianist Stefan Stroissnig studied with Oleg Maisenberg in his hometown of Vienna as well as with Ian Jones at the Royal College of Music in London, and received further artistic inspiration from renowned pianists including Daniel Barenboim and Dmitri Bashkirov.
His concert activity as a soloist has taken him all over the world. He has performed in the most prestigious concert houses in Europe, including the Musikverein Wien and the Berlin Philharmonie, and in 2013 he was the soloist in Messiaen’s Turangalîla-symphonie at the Royal Festival Hall, London.
Chamber music is of great importance to him, which has led to co-operation with musicians such as Heinrich Schiff, Nobuko Imai and Shmuel Ashkenasi. He has been invited to appear at the Salzburg Festival, the Carinthian Summer Music Festival and the Ruhr Piano Festival among others.
His recording of works by Franz Schubert and Franz Liszt was awarded the Pasticcio Prize by Austrian radio station Ö1. Aside from his concert activity, he teaches at the University of Music and the Performing Arts in Graz, Austria. His contribution to the international musical world has earned Stroissnig a nomination for the Credit Suisse Award in 2014 by the Vienna Philharmonic.
