Vienna State Opera
20 March 2018
Three fearless musicians perform original compositions inspired by various musical styles. This rare musical language combines classical virtuosity with cool and innovative rythms, breaking musical boundaries. They electrify the audience with their unique sound and thrilling performance.
Classical & Improvisation: The music of the New Piano Trio was celebrated on its 2016 debut as a "Classic Revolution". And indeed: violinist Florian Willeitner, pianist Maria Radutu and cellist Ivan Turkalj discover their own sound worlds, blurring the boundaries between classical and pop.
Radiant harmonies, dark tones, Balkan rhythms and groovy beats: Willeitner's compositions express the seriousness, but above all, the joy and lightness of life. Incidentally, in November 2017, the 25-year-old Sting fan completed his violin studies with Prof. Benjamin Schmid at the Mozarteum Salzburg with top marks.
Program: Irish Wedding in Bucharest / No Place to Go / Piano Trio No. 2 / Valentinair / Fugue in D / Lower Bavarian Integration Suite for Piano Trio

“The ORF - Symphony Orchestra is currently touring through Asia [...] in the National Concert Hall in Taipei . [...]. The young pianist Maria Radutu, as soloist of the concert, surprised the audience with her soulful interpretations (Mozart Concerto).” (2016 – Radio Taiwan International)
"She reveals these intimate emotions that people aren't so quick to bring to the stage." (Donato Cabrera - Conductor)
“The young concert pianist Maria Radutu in turn enriched the Burlesque with refined technique and a sensibility of excellence that musically unified with the orchestra. She merged completely with the orchestra's interpretation and proved herself an excellent connoisseur of Strauss, deemed challenging for the interpreter. She will undoubtedly continue her rise in a brilliant career that already shines.” (L'Orfeo)
„Her subtle selection of works by [...], as well as their versatile interpretation lead Insomnia to a first rank listening experience.“ (2016 - Die Presse)
"A young pianist with classical background who brings out her own identity" (2016 Concerto)
