It's Beethoven's elemental force that fascinates Wunder. Every single note of this composer is definite. There is no timid attempt. Either one leaves it altogether or one takes the challenge. And the challenge is in Wunder's blood. He takes them with pleasure and enjoys them tremendously.

Notes like swarms of birds

The obligatory concerto presented with Ingolf Wunder, a pianist of the young generation, who already had substantial successes in his young career. Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 gained a clear profile without succumbing to the danger of being exaggerated. Even the dreaded octave glissando third movement, obviously written by the pianist himself, remained minor-shadowed in the area of the main themes. For the rich applause Wunder thanked the public with Debussy's "Clair de lune".

Beethoven 5th

With the Beethoven Piano-Concerto accompanied by the Brussels Philharmonic under Michel Tabachnik he presented himself as a master of sparkling cascades, effortlessly placed martellato-octaves and especially in the second movement of deep, fulfilling, poetic cantabiles.

Sprung from a dream

A nice introduction and an excellent contrast to the center-piece of the program, which exhibited the self-constructive constructivism of the 30-year-old Beethoven. Less in a gestural sense, however, because the 32-year Wunder is a man of clear structures in the matter. With a decided, very differentiated, precise and plastic tone that always points to the creative process in which it is very effective. He related always to the melodies without harming the form or creating pseudo-genial outliers. The correspondence with the direct and strikingly playing Museumsorchester was superb. Beethoven's articulatory self-logic in ideal projection of his formal calculus - crowned by the soloist with his wonderful cadences.

A Thomas Mann at the piano

Ingolf Wunder is telling stories with music. The young Austrian pianist Ingolf Wunder who visited the Tonhalle, is able to profoundly narrate works by both, Ludwig van Beethoven and Frédéric Chopin. He succeeded in a particularly impressive fashion with the bulkiest piece of the evening, Beethovens Eroica Variations.
