Michael Endres, pianist


The outstanding German pianist Michael Endres performs worldwide as soloist and chamber music partner. Born 1961 in Sonthofen in the Oberallgäu region of the Bavarian Alps. Studied with Klaus Schilde and Karl Hermann Mrongovius in Munich, then with Jacob Lateiner at the Juilliard School New York, where he received his Masters Degree, and with Peter Feuchtwanger in London. He has won prizes such as the Concours Geza Anda (Zurich) and First & Special Prizes at the International Schubert Competition (Germany) among others.

As well as specializing in Mozart, Schubert, Schumann and Ravel, he has a wide repertoire including the somewhat neglected composers Carl Maria von Weber, Leopold Godowsky, Gabriel Fauré, Sir Arnold Bax and Eduard Tubin.

His comprehensive recordings - totaling 27 CDs - include the complete sonatas of Franz Schubert, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Carl Maria von Weber and Arnold Bax, the complete piano works of Maurice Ravel as well as a complete recording of the 400 dances of Franz Schubert and 3 CDs of works by Robert Schumann. His recordings have received many prizes including Choc du Musique and Diapason d'Or.

He has appeared at many major festivals and concert-halls around the world, such as the Salzburg Festival, Beethoven Fest Wigmore Hall London, Newport Festival, Wiener Musikverein, Berlin Philharmonie and Suntory Hall, Tokyo.

His playing is often described as subtle, elegant and refined. While not taking the dramatic elements of the music to the extreme, this is more than compensated for by the insights that he brings and the remarkable clarity of his readings and playing. Leading US critic Richard Dyer from the Boston Globe called him”one of the most interesting pianists recording today”, the New York Times wrote: ”the performances with pianist Michael Endres were revelatory” and the Gramophone Magazine stated: ”he is an outstanding Schubert interpreter”. And such comments are shared by Charles Timbrell, who notes in Fanfare Magazine in January this year "...Curzon, Richter, Pollini, Brendel, Perahia, and Kissin, among others... and Endres' belongs to that elite group."

He was professor for piano from 1993 to 2004 at the Hochschule fuer Musik in Cologne,until 2009 at the Hochschule Hanns Eisler in Berlin. Since autumn 2009 he is professor for piano at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand.

For many years, Michael Endres was the pianist to the late baritone Hermann Prey.
