Ingolf Wunder

A morning of wonder and genius

[...] Next up was Ingolf Wunder, another student of a jury member and previous laureate – Adam Harasiewicz. That patrician influence showed in the Austrian’s way with such elusive pieces as the G flat Impromptu and Op.24 Mazurkas, but he also disclosed his own musical maturity. The brilliant lightness of his A flat Waltz, Op.34 No.1, and utmost delicacy in the first part of the Andante spianato et Grande polonaise brilliante put them among the best performances of these works so far...It might be an exaggeration to call this a morning of “Wonder” and “Genius”, but these are names to watch.
