“He is a musical expressionist par excellence, who continues the German piano artistry with his performance.” FAZ
Matthias Kirschnereit is counted amongst the most riveting and successful German pianists of his generation. The ECHO-Classic-Laureate performs 60 concerts annually and is celebrated as the “poet on the piano” by the Süddeutsche Zeitung.
His concerts can be experienced in the prime musical venues all over the world, amongst others Konzerthaus and Philharmonie Berlin, Herkulessaal Munich, Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, Théâtre des Champs Elysées Paris, Tonhalle Zürich, Sala Verdi Milano, Rudolfinum Prag and the Teatro Municipal Santiago de Chile, Suntory Hall Tokio and Shanghai Oriental Art Center. Equally important to him are his moments of chamber musical intimacy during recitals, where he captivates his audience with his nuanced yet intensive interpretations.
Since 2012, Matthias Kirschnereit is artistic manager of the Gezeitenkonzerte Ostfriesland – a festival amongst friends that gains renown year after year.
In the meantime, Matthias Kirschnereit has published 30 CDs, including the standard setting complete piano concerts of Mozart and Mendelssohn or the referential recordings of unconventional repertoires such as the piano concerts of Julius Röntgen or Händel’s organ concerts arranged for piano. „Kirschnereit deserves all the praises coming to him these days!“ was the verdict of London’s Gramophone Magazine regarding his internationally celebrated Solo-CDs with the works of Robert Schumann („Scenes“, 2010) and Franz Schubert („Wanderer Fantasy“, 2012). With equal fervour, the Fono-Forum hailed his newest playing of the “Songs without Words“ of Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy and his sister Fanny Hensel as “without comparison”. In 2017 his most recent CD “Frei aber einsam” with Brahms recordings was released, including collaborations with the Amaryllis Quartet (piano quintet) and Lena Neudauer (Scherzo from the F.A.E. Sonata). The Fono Forum praised the recording as “flaming intensity” and “addictive potential”.
