Notes and Editorial Reviews
Elisabeth Brauss was born in 1995 in Honnover. She was admitted to the piano class of Dr. Elena Levit at the age of five and studied from 2007 to 2010 at the “Institut zur Fruhforderung musikalisch Hochbegabter” (Institute for the Early Furtherance of the Highly Gifted) of the Academy of Music, Theatre and Media in Hannover. She studied from 2008 to 2010 in Hannover in the piano classes of Dr. Elena Levit and Prof. Matti Raekallio; she has been studying at the HMTMH in the piano class of Professor Bernd Goetzke since 2010. Elisabeth makes regular guest appearances at the Laeisz-Halle in Hamburg, the Konzerthaus in Berlin, the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, and the
Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival. In January 2015 Elisabeth Brauss won first prize at the competition “Ton und Erklärung” in Frankfurt and performed with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony in the finale. This prize is awarded annually by the Cultural Society of the German Economy in BDI; OehmsClassics also presents the prize winner album each year. The 2015 prize winner obviously has a great career before her.
The maturity and sophistication of her thoughtful interpretations would be the pride of any pianist twice her age. It is rare to encounter the degree of instrumental mastery wed to musical depth and sensitivity in one so young. Her exhilarating Beethoven is so thoroughly integrated that each movement is emotionally and spiritually amplified by what has gone before. Her original and unaffected Chopin-playing is fresh and a joy to listen to.
