About the album

Born in Budapest in 1965, Hungarian pianist Klara Würtz started playing the piano at the age of six. Showing an extraordinary affinity for the instrument, she became a member of the highly regarded Hungarian Radio and Television Children's Choir the same year. By the time she was ten years old, she had toured Greece, Italy, Rumania, Yugoslavia, Austria and Japan as piano soloist with the choir. At 14, Miss Wurtz joined the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest and later became a student of the prominent pianist Zoltan Kocsis. She also worked extensively with colleague Andras Schiff.
In 1985, Klara Wiirtz won the coveted First Prize in the Ettore Pozzoli International Piano Competition in Milan, Italy. She was praised not only for her superior technical command, but also for her very special sensibility towards the music, as well as for her charismatic quality which is intensely personal and individual. Milan's leading newspaper, Il Giornale, exclaimed: "From the first moments, Klara Würtz showed the exceptional qualities, both technically and musically, of a true artist. This young pianist strikes one immediately with a clarity of sound and interpretation, coupled with exquisite control".

For her prize-winning performance of Schubert's Sonata in B flat in the 1988 Dublin lnternational Piano Competition, the Sunday Tribune wrote of her "deeply moving performance of this difficult work, with silky-smooth touch and effortless melodic flow".
Klara Würtz has appeared all over Europe and in Japan. During the 1989/90 concert season she made her debut in the United States with three different tours performing over forty concerts in recital and with orchestra.
