“In any case, he plays my music like no one else: intellectually and technically; a brooding man, but of the greatest skill, seriousness, and extraordinary sense of tone color.” This is how Arnold Schönberg described Eduard Steuermann, whose status as the unequalled pianist of the Viennese School all too easily obscures his universal artistic personality. The book “Eduard Steuermann ‘Musiker und Virtuose’” (Bericht zum Symposium an der Anton Bruckner Privatuniversität Linz, edition text+kritik) edited by Lars E. Laubhold and published in 2022, serves as an impetus for a concert that showcases Steuermann’s versatility and complexity.
