Extractions: Paul Badura-Skoda is one of the most important pianists of our time: a legendary artist who has played in all the world's greatest concert halls and for years the pianist with the largest number of commercial recordings available in the market. His musical personality is characterized by complete immersion in music, a passionate search for its essence, and a sense of artistic responsibility. In 1945 Badura-Skoda entered the Vienna Conservatory and two years later won first prize in the Austrian Music Competition and a scholarship which allowed him to study with Edwin Fischer. These years laid the foundation for Badura-Skoda's artistic future. In 1949 Wilhelm Furtwängler and Herbert von Karajan became aware of Badura-Skoda's outstanding talent and invited him to perform. Practically overnight the young Viennese pianist became a world-famous artist. Since then Badura-Skoda has been a regular and celebrated guest at the most important music festivals and a soloist with the world's most prestigious orchestras. In addition to Furtwängler and von Karajan, he has collaborated with such renowned conductors as George Szell, Karl Böhm, Zubin Mehta, Sir Georg Solti, and Lorin Maazel, among others.

Extractions: Last year's concert by Viennese pianist Paul Badura-Skoda with the A. Mozart Fest Orchestra was a lesson about authenticity. Decades ahead of a trend that bloomed in the Eighties and Nineties, Badura-Skoda was dusting off Mozart-era forte-pianos and stripping away the centuries of romantic interpretation to bring us closer to what Mozart's contemporaries heard. But his performance of three Mozart works for piano and orchestra showed that he didn't need an antique piano to convey the essence of Mozart. Badura-Skoda could probably do that with an accordion. "He knows all about performance practice because he came from the tradition in the purest form. It is part of his personality," says A. Mozart Fest director Mary Robbins, who is bringing Badura-Skoda back to Austin for a solo recital on Sunday, March 23. Some historical fundamentalists are content to read scores literally, steadfastly refusing to warm up luscious, 200-year-old melodies, perhaps to escape the smothering orbit of romanticism. But Badura-Skoda nurtures his phrases without apology, and you understand why. Sometimes leaping off the bench to cue the orchestra, Badura-Skoda communicated such a sense of logic and purpose that he wove the musicians and audience into an unforgettable experience. He and Robbins, who have had a musical relationship for more than a decade, sparred in the
Extractions: Paul Badura-Skoda recital in Calgary The eminent Viennese pianist and scholar is currently on a wide ranging tour of North America. His stop-over in Calgary coincided with a ferocious cold snap (minus 29C) but this hardly daunted the seventy-five year old master pianist. A part of a symposium on Schubert held at the University of Calgary, Paul Badura-Skoda gave a brief lecture outlining some connections between Schubert's songs and instrumental works. His observations reminded us that it is crucial and also valuable to study the songs. They provide important insights into instrumental music as well. For all that, far more significant was the superb recital played the following night. The first half of the concert was played upon an 1822 Broadwood and Sons piano provided by the Cantos Music Foundation. In almost original condition the instrument was both visually beautiful and aurally satisfying. The second half of the concert was performed upon a modern Yamaha concert grand. It may be thought that Paul Badura-Skoda, long associated with period performance, period instruments and the Classical era is 'merely' a fortepianist. Nothing could be further from the truth. Indeed, I think that for all of the interest in the Classical masters (and I consider his recording of the Op 106

Extractions: Pianist Paul Badura-Skoda Fresno StateUniversity Paul Badura-Skoda Lays on the Charm by Lyn Bronson A living legend came to Fresno State University on Wednesday, October 14, as world-renowned Austrian pianist Paul Badura-Skoda appeared in recital on the Philip Lorenz Memorial Keyboard Concerts series. Now in his seventies, Badura-Skodas skills and prolific memory seemed to be undimmed by time, He managed to perform a gigantic program consisting of Mozarts Fantasie in C Minor, K. 475, Haydns Sonata No. 46 in A-flat, Frank Martins Fantasie sur des rhythmes flamenco and Beethovens Op. 111. This is a program that would be daunting to someone half his age. Also, he managed to charm his audience with generous and entertaining remarks about the music he was performing. This is the first time I had ever heard his speaking voice, and I am pleased to report that he has a perfect command of the English language (unlike that other Austrian, our new State Governor, who has a perfect command of broken English). It was interesting that his Mozart and Haydn playing seemed more in the style of Beethoven than Mozart and Haydn, but this was Badura-Skoda making a valid point here that these works do contain the aggressive boldness that we associate with Beethoven.

Extractions: April 4, 2003: A Craftsman Conversing With Mystery First Baptist Church, Sunday, March 23 The second thing was the phone book. A cushion would not sit securely enough atop the piano stool, so Badura-Skoda opted for an open, upturned Yellow Pages for the precise boost on the stool. Oddly, the man upright a 75-year-old Austrian with the measured pace of the classic European: unhurried and easy, with something of a regal air; simultaneously uncomplicated and unfathomably deep was not as impressive as the man sitting down. If it was possible, Badura-Skoda appeared larger sitting at the Steinway than he did gently accepting the warm appreciation of the hands-side-heavy house. The opening work was Mozart's Fantasy in C Minor, K. 475 Sonata in A Minor, Op. 42 (D. 845) took grandeur to new heights in the supreme opening Moderato. This time, in keeping with the highly dramatic piece, Badura-Skoda allowed lengthy, dead-still pauses between movements. The stately Moderato, then, was followed by the delicate and light Andante, then two Allegro movements: a teeth-bared attack of the Scherzo and an acceleration of the final Rondo, upon whose conclusion Badura-Skoda flew away from the piano, the final note firing the 75-year-old off the Yellow Pages and face front at the audience, which offered its own ecstatic response. After the break, the audience was treated to a display of exquisite control for Haydn's

Extractions: Biographie PAUL BADURA-SKODA ist einer der großen Pianisten unserer Zeit. Ein legendärer Künstler, der in den Konzertsälen der ganzen Welt zu hören ist und lange Jahre der Pianist mit der höchsten Platteneinspielung war. Seine musikalische Persönlichkeit ist geprägt von einer völligen Vertiefung in die Musik, einer leidenschaftlichen Suche nach dem Wesentlichen und einer hohen künstlerischer Verantwortung. Der Zuhörer spürt sofort, dass er die Musik mit jeder Faser seines Wesens liebt. Als gebürtiger Wiener gewann er mit 20 Jahren nach dem Krieg den ersten Preis im österreichischen Musikwettbewerb, der ihm ein für sein Leben richtungsweisendes Stipendium für Edwin Fischers Meisterkurse in Luzern brachte. Wenig später wurden Furtwängler und Herbert von Karajan auf ihn aufmerksam und die Konzerte mit diesen Dirigenten wurden zum Beginn einer kometenhaft aufsteigenden Karriere, die ihn in die Konzertsäle aller Kontinente und in die Schallplattenstudios von Europa und USA sowie in die internationalen Fernsehstudios brachte. Badura-Skoda ist für die unglaubliche Vielseitigkeit seines Repertoires bekannt und wird für sein sprühend lebendiges, schöpferisches Musizieren geschätzt und gefeiert. Die Vertiefung in die Musik, die leidenschaftliche Suche nach dem Wesentlichen des Kunstwerks führte ihn zu einer hohen künstlerischen Verantwortung und der Einmaligkeit seines Interpretationsstils.
