Dear friends of music,
The 5th Symphony by Ludwig van Beethoven should be well known to most people – it is one of the most famous and outstanding works of classical music literature. Less well known, however, is the fact that there is also an arrangement for piano alone by none other than the great composer Franz Liszt himself! If you know Liszt’s works, you can already imagine that it is highly virtuosic and Gotthard Kladetzky is a specialist in this field!
“Carnvaval” by Robert Schumann is a piano cycle consisting of 23 short pieces, which was originally supposed to be called “Fasching”. As the name suggests, the cycle is about a masked ball in which, among others, characters from the Commedia dell’arte take part. This is an Italian folk comedy that features characters such as the Harlequin. So we can look forward to a cheerful treat!

Gotthard Kladetzky, born in Cologne, studied piano in his hometown at the University of Music and Dance and finished his studies with a concert exam. During his studies and afterwards he took many years of lessons with the world-famous pianist Claudio Arrau. From 1975 to 1982 he was a teacher at the Engelbert Humperdinck Music School in Siegburg, where he frequently appeared as a pianist. He has been teaching at the Moers Music School since 1978, and at the HfMT Cologne since 1982, and has since become known to many people of Moerser and Siegburg through his concerts. The cyclical performances of the piano works by Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms and Ravel are still being appreciated by music lovers world-wide.
He also performed in many other cities in Germany and Europe, as well as in South Africa and recorded over 20 CDs. His most important performances were in the Great Hall and the Chamber Music Hall of the Berlin Philharmonic as well as in the Town Hall in Cape Town
Since 1980, Gotthard Kladetzky has been a member of the German Music Association (Deutscher Tonkünstler Verband) and its West German predecessor VDMK and is, for more than 25 years, a member of the board and most recently chairman of the district Bonn / Rhein-Sieg. In this function he is active in numerous specialist groups and especially as a juror at “Jugend musiziert”.
I’m looking forward to your visit!
