"After silence that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music." - Aldous Huxley

Gerold Huber, pianist of international standing and winner of two coveted "Echo" prizes, was born in 1969 in Straubing, Bavaria. He won a grant to the Munich Hochschule für Musik, studying piano with Friedemann Berger and Lied interpreation with Helmut Deutsch, and was a participant in Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's masterclass in Berlin. In 1998 he won the Prix International Pro Musicis in Paris. In 2001 he was one of the prizewinners at the highly specialized Johann Sebastian Bach International Piano Competition in Saarbrücken.
An experienced and dedicated classical lied accompanist, Gerold Huber has made countless guest appearances not only at most of the worldwide famous concert halls but also at various significant festivals, notably the Schubertiades in Schwarzenberg (Austria) and Vilabertran (Spain), the Rheingau Musikfestival and the Schleswig- Holstein Festival, as well as featuring in festivals in Cheltenham (England) and Saintes (France). His extensive list of performance venues also includes major international concert halls such as the Cologne Philharmonic Hall, Frankfurt's Alte Oper, the Leipzig Gewandhaus, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Konzertgebouw Amsterdam, the Wigmore Hall in London and the Frick Collection in New York. Gerold Huber's solo performances to date have largely showcased the works of Bach, Beethoven, Schubert and Brahms. His recordings of Schubert's Winterreise (2002) and Die schöne Müllerin (2004) were both awarded the hotly-contested Echo-Klassik prize. Amongst the soloists regularly accompanied by Gerold Huber are Christian Gerhaher, Ruth Ziesak, Franz-Josef Selig, Cornelia Kallisch, Diana Damrau, the Liedertafel ensemble and Susanne Brantl.
