Dear friends of music and art,
we are delighted to once again welcome the outstanding pianist Gesa Lücker to the Musikstudio:
A thoughtful German pianist…straightforward and sensitive… rich with imagination and technical prowess…” (The New York Times)
Numerous concert tours have taken Gesa Lücker all over Germany, the USA, China and European countries to halls such as the NDR Hannover Great Broadcasting Hall, Yamaha Hall and Carnegie Hall (Weill Recital Hall) in New York, London’s Wigmore Hall and He Luting Hall in Shanghai. She has given recitals, master classes and lectured on several tours in China including Shanghai (Oriental Arts Center), Suzhou (Culture and Arts Center), Nanjing (Nanjing Arts Center), Beijing (Tsinghua University, China Conservatory of Music) and in New York City as a regular guest of the “International Keyboard Institute and Festival”.
Born in Braunschweig, she studied at the Hanover University of Music and Drama until her concert exam with Martin Dörrie and Matti Raekallio and in courses with Arie Vardi, Fabio Bidini and Jerome Rose.
She is a prizewinner of the Bruno Frey Foundation, the Chopin Society of Hanover and national and international competitions.
Initially Gesa Lücker taught at the Hanover University of Music at the “Institute for the Early Promotion of the Musically Highly Gifted” before being appointed Professor of Piano at the HfMT Cologne in 2010. Students in her class are now regular prize winners at national and international competitions. CD recordings have been released by Genuin and Wergo.
In her current program Gesa Lücker brings the German composer Luise Adolpha Le Beau, a contemporary and brief student of the late Clara Schumann, into the spotlight. Le Beau’s largely unknown works are mirrored with kindred pieces by her revered inspirers J.S. Bach and Robert Schumann. This combination creates a poetic and profound interplay between all three, and also makes Le Beau’s music seem downright timeless.
At the same time, today is also the finisssage of the exhibition Peau-ésie of the Belgian artist Markus Neumann, who will also be present today. So do not miss this special opportunity to see the artworks for the last time in Bonn! You can find more information about the exhibition here.
