Ingolf Wunder Biography (Wikipedia)
Ingolf Wunder (born 8 September 1985 in Klagenfurt) is an Austrian classical pianist. Wunder was the second prize winner at the International Chopin Competition 2010 in Warsaw, Poland. He also won special prizes for Best Concerto and Best Polonaise-Fantasie performance at the competition.
Wunder had his first music lesson at the age of four, initially learning the violin. His talent for the piano was discovered years later, and he studied in conservatories in Klagenfurt and Linz before joining the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. A participant in the earlier 2005 International Chopin Piano Competition, Wunder failed to make the last stage. From 2008 to 2010 he studied under Adam Harasiewicz, who was himself the winner of the Chopin Competition in 1955, in preparation for the 2010 International Chopin Piano Competition.
After the Chopin Competition, he has performed around the world, both in solo recital and with symphonies.
In January 2011 he signed as an artist with Deutsche Grammophon. He has released three albums to date.
