BIOGRAPHY

ANTON GERZENBERG

The 1996-born pianist Anton Gerzenberg was catapulted onto the international classical music scene in June 2021, when he won the First Prize at the 15th Concours Géza Anda in Zurich.

Since then he has established his presence in the music world with performances of both the classical repertoire as well as the extended sound worlds of Contemporary piano music, for which he has a particular affinity and likes to combine with each other in conceptual programs.

Highlights of the coming season include a residency at the Wiener Konzerthaus, where he will be represented as „Great Talent“ and will perform in five concerts throughout the season, in recitals, but also in debuts with the Wiener KammerOrchester and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra. The season will feature also a conducting debut with the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra, extended tours to South Korea, Taiwan and Mexico, as well as a tour in Germany and Austria of the complete Ligeti Etudes for the celebration of the 100th anniversary of Ligeti‘s birth.

„Gerzenberg was in a league of his own. He seemed in total control, armed with uncommon self-assuredness for a pianist of his age. … He looks every bit a potential leading light of his generation.“

James Imam, Musical America Worldwide

“The Totentanz … sounded epic, heroically powerful, courageous and at the same time modest, testifying to the pianist’s fine aesthetic taste. Gerzenberg’s organic virtuosity, composure and stage confidence impressed from the first notes.”

Svetlana Melentyeva, Rossyiskaya Gazeta

„Suddenly there was a pianist on the stage, who withdrew behind the music, who acted in such a way that the musical text was recognized in its delicacy. … He showed an immense musicality, which convinced in every nuance.“

Carsten Dürer, Piano News
