“Music is the deepest expression of my soul” says Munich-based pianist Tanja Huppert who sees her most important task during the piano playing in re-feeling the composer’s inner world - when writing their music - and conveying it to the listener.
She believes that music can work wonders and even defeat all evil. Kirill Petrenko, chief conductor of Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, described her interpretation of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations BWV 988 as “subtle” and “played with great musicality, creativity and high technical ability”.
She is currently preparing a video project in which she will record classical piano works for YouTube.
Her recordings with Bamberg Symphony Orchestra and Bayerischer Rundfunk (Public Bavarian Radio) are yearly broadcast in the radio, e.g. on BR-Klassik.

For me, they are one of the most beautiful works for piano, and they vividly illustrate Bach's ingenious
foresight for the musical possibilities to come with the advent of the piano.
At the same time, they represent a wonderful counterpoint to the fast-moving habits of our time and are
therefore very topical from my point of view. I also offer this programme as a matinée.
Johann Sebastian Bach: Goldberg Variations (BWV 988)
~Inspired by Vienna
My beloved place in Vienna is the salon room in the Mozarthaus,
where Mozart and Haydn played their string quartets with their friends and where the view from
the window has not changed for 300 years. The idea for this program came to me there,
because practically at the same time Haydn, Beethoven and Schubert were inspired by Vienna and yet
musically expressed themselves in different ways. This is precisely what I would like to show with this programme.
J. Haydn: Piano Sonata C Major Hob. XVI:48
J. Haydn: Andante con variazioni for piano F minor Hob. XVII:6
J. Haydn: Piano Sonata in E Minor Hob. XVI:34
Franz Schubert: Moments musicaux D. 780 op. 94:
No. 1 in C major, No. 3 in F minor, No. 6 in A flat major.
Ludwig van Beethoven: Sonata No. 30 op. 109
I am currently preparing a larger video project with classical piano music.
More information about this you will soon find here.
Her subtle interpretation and a rich tone are evidence of a matured musical personality.
A wonderful balance between technical ability, musicality, inspiration and wit.
A highly gifted pianist with her own, musical profile.
A fascinating, soft, sometimes introvert, then again feminine interpretation of wonderful beauty.
Tanja Huppert played into our hearts tonight! Completely devoted to the music she interpreted Rameau, Scarlatti and Haydn. And then Bach! It was a wonderful evening.
