Till Fellner

This guy’s Beethoven is something special.  My review is here.  No media of his sonata playing, but here he is, quite young, playing my favorite Mozart Concerto, K. 488.  Enjoy:


I'm a composer and musician, and I write about music—I do that here, for the New York Classical Review, at the Brooklyn Rail (I edit the music section there) and any place else that will have me, like New Music Box and Music & Literature. I also wrote the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew book in the 33 1/3 series.

  • A terrific review of a superb recital. Your point is very well made: Fellner’s Beethoven is a model of clarity, beauty, and apparently effortless technique, with no ticks, idiosyncrasies, or willful distortions, yet it fully conveys the profound strangeness and discomfort in much of the music.
