 Update me on new releases by Kliegel

Maria Kliegel (b1952)

After studying with János Starker at Indiana University, in 1981 Maria Kliegel won the Grand Prix of the Paris Concours Rostropovich. Mstislav Rostropovich subsequently became one of her most important mentors. She started a successful recording career on the Naxos label in 1991, and her recording of the Dvořák and Elgar Cello Concertos (8.550503) with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London has been a bestseller for many years. The composer Alfred Schnittke described her recording of his First Cello Concerto (8.554465) as the definitive performance. She has received frequent honours including two GRAMMY® nominations. For her multimedia book and DVD project, Schott Cello Master Class: Mit Technik und Fantasie zum künstlerischen Ausdruck, published in 2006, she has received two prestigious awards, the special Digita Award and the European Media Award Comenius EduMedia-Siegel. This was the starting-point for the English version Cello-Master: Class Using Technique and Imagination to achieve Artistic Expression (2.110280–81), released on the Naxos label in 2010. Since 1986 she has been professor at the Cologne Musikhochschule and in 2001 established, with Ida Bieler (violin) and Nina Tichman (piano), the Xyrion Trio, which undertook the artistic supervision of the Andernach Music Festival at Namedy Castle in 2007. Maria Kliegel plays a cello made by Carlo Tononi, Venice, in c. 1730.
