*Special Concert*

November 16, 2014 - 9:00 am

The Wagner Society welcomes Steinway Artist and piano virtuoso Stephan Möller. Stephan Möller is also professor of piano at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna, President of the Vienna International Piano Institute and also serves on the juries of many piano competitions world-wide which is what brings him to California (see additional information on Stephan Möller below). The program will be devoted to Richard Wagner with several of Wagner’s rare piano works as well as piano transcriptions of Wagner’s works. Those of us who heard Möller perform last year at the Wagner-Liszt Festival will not soon forget his riveting performance.
Tickets are $25 per person. This event is open to the public and we welcome our members to invite friends for this unique concert.
Stephan Möller first gained prominence as a prizewinner at the 1985 International Beethoven Competition in Vienna. Since then his busy concert schedule has taken him to Japan, China, North and South America as well as all over Europe. Performing all the standard repertory, Stephan Möller has concentrated especially on the interpretation of the Viennese classics, in particular Beethoven’s thirty-two sonatas, as well as on Franz Liszt’s paraphrases of Wagner opera scenes and transcriptions of Beethoven symphonies. Among his CD recordings, there are such rarities as Beethoven’s “Grosse Fuge” and the complete piano works of Wagner. Born in Hamburg, Germany, Stephan Möller studied piano and conducting at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria. From 1983 to 1989 he assisted Herbert von Karajan and other world-renowned conductors at the Salzburg Festival. In 1990 he took up an appointment at the University for Music and Performing Arts Vienna. He is president of the Vienna International Pianists Association and their festival, the “VIP Academy.”
There will be light refreshments served after the concert.
