Klaus Sticken (Piano)

Born: 1966 - Germany

The German pianist, Klaus Sticken, studied with Vladimir Krainev, Vitaly Margulis, Gyorgy Sebok and Alfred Brendel. Through his teachers he has become familiar with very varied approaches to music. He won prizes at the Concours Clara Haskil in Vevey, the Grand Prix Maria Callas in Athens and the Hamamatsu International Piano Competition in Japan.

Klaus Sticken is a versatile and distinctive pianist with over ten years of concert experience. He performs in such venues as the Tonhalle Zürich, the Great Hall of the Tchaikovsky Conservatoire in Moscow, the Philharmonie in Kiew, the Megaron in Athens, the Konzerthaus in Berlin and the Musikhalle in Hamburg. He has performed, amongst other engagements, to concerts with the Warsaw Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne, Ukraine State Orchestra, Berliner Symphoniker and Moscow Symphonic Orchestra. He undertakes concert tours throughout Europe and in the Far East.

Klaus Stickenís creative engagement with piano music is well displayed in the theme-based recitals for various radio stations, the Deutschlandradio, Radio Suisse Romande and Westdeutsche, Mitteldeutsche and Hessische Rundfunk and others. Sticken also works with experimentally minded partners such as the Kuss Quartet or the author and pianist Cord Garben and tries out new methods of presenting music and text with the poet Oskar Ansull. Recordings for the CD label Thorofon and many radio productions of seldom heard masterpieces by Clementi, Reubke, Strauss, Martin, Arthur Honegger, Korngold and Nino Rota provide evidence of the wide-ranging nature of his repertoire.

Besides his concert activity Klaus Sticken directs a piano class at the Konservatorium Wien University.
