THIS IS MARIA RADUTU

THIS IS MARIA RADUTU

SHORT BIO FOR IMMEDIATE USE:

Austrian-Romanian pianist Maria Radutu crosses borders between styles and time periods, combining classical piano music with different art forms, creating programs that must be experienced. In her recitals MARIA RADUTU IS PIANOBOX. , the podcast PIANOBOX and the music chamber play ALL ABOUT EVE with Sophie Heinrich, she surpasses the threshold between stage and audience, providing insights into the creation of her interpretation.

Her solo career has taken her through Europe, Asia and the U.S. to venues including the Carnegie Hall, the Vienna State Opera, the Wiener Konzerthaus, the Salle Gaveau in Paris, the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid, the Prince Mahidol Hall in Bangkok, the Smith Center in Las Vegas and the National Concert Hall in Taipei. She performed as a soloist with orchestras including the Vienna Radio Symphony, the Zagreb Philharmonic, the Las Vegas Philharmonic, the California Symphony, the Orquesta Clasica Santa Cecilia and the Vienna Chamber Orchestra.

Her albums and recitals are designed to share her stories with the audience, beyond the limits of style, language and background. INSOMNIA for Universal Music was called a „first-class listening experience“ by the Austrian newspaper „Die Presse“. PHOENIX is her answer to the question how to create a musical rebirth, enriched by the “Pictures of an Album” by Felicia Gulda. With Eno Peçi, solo dancer and choreographer of the Vienna State Opera, Radutu created PIANO & DANCE, a program to melt piano music with modern dance and combines classical music and jazz with Christoph Cech and his Jazz Orchestra Project. She was artistic director of the ensemble PhilKlang and curated her own subscription series in Vienna’s concert hall Das MuTh.

Radutu’s unconventional discography includes a dramaturgical designed trilogy “Joujoux – Insomnia – Phoenix” and Shostakovich’s First Piano Concerto with the RSO Vienna and Dirk Kaftan. A whole series of works have been dedicated to her, such as the piano concertos “The Orgy of Oxymorons” by Margareta Ferek-Petric (premiere 2022 with the RSO Vienna at musikprotokoll Graz) or the “Rhapsody in Delicate Blue” by Christoph Cech (premiere 2024 at the Keys to Heaven Piano Festival).

Maria Radutu is a Steinway artist and the artistic director of the KEYS TO HEAVEN PIANO FESTIVAL at the Esterhazy Palace in Austria, an annual festival held in spring to experience piano music in a wide variety of facets and formats over three nights and days.
