Beethoven – Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor Mahler – Symphony No. 5 in C-sharp minor
“A pianist of unbounding sensitivity” (Gramophone); “He represents a vanishing tradition that favors inner expression and atmosphere over showmanship and bravura” (Chicago Tribune); “Impeccable technique and musicality … it would be hard to imagine better performances” (Sunday Times – London); “This artist has the kind of flawless touch that makes an audience gasp” (Washington Post); “Exquisite playing” (The New York Times). The Irish pianist John O’Conor studied in his native Dublin, in Vienna with Dieter Weber and being tutored by the legendary Wilhelm Kempff. His 1st Prize at the International Beethoven Piano Competition in Vienna in 1973 opened the door to a career that has brought him all around the world.
