Felicitas Karrer (b1924)

Felicitas Karrer was born in Vienna on 26 August 1924. Her father was an enterprising engineer who designed and constructed parking garages in Vienna, including the very first five-storey garage with space for 400 cars. His successes and business acumen allowed his family to live in relative comfort. Karrer began piano studies at the age of five. From 1941 to 1945 she studied with Friedrich Wührer (1900–1975). She participated in various music competitions: Vienna (1948), Paris (1949, Concours Marguerite Long), Geneva (1951), Munich (1952), and Siena (Accademia Chigiana). During her concert career Karrer performed with many distinguished conductors, including Hans Swarowsky, Robert Heger, Paul van Kempen, and Edouard van Remoortel. She appeared in concerts in Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Belgium and England. When Remington Records began recording in Vienna, Karrer was asked to join the artist roster in 1950. She recorded the Grieg, Rachmaninov Second and Beethoven’s Emperor Concertos for the label, as well as an entire disc of the solo piano works of Richard Wagner (which received their first commercial recordings).
