Ingolf Wunder

Ingolf Wunder in Baden-Baden

[...]There is not a single moment of doubt that he got his name unjustly, because in his interpretation of all the bravura pieces, he shows next to tremendous virtuosity, which never drifts into shallowness, a mature understanding of the structure[…] Pollini’s sentence “I think one gets closer to Mozart with age” is this time not true. Because Wunder captures the details best possible. [...] What follows makes one equally speechless. As with Mozart, the pianist widens and condenses tempos and expands the cosmos  of the score into another dimension [Chopin’s g minor ballad]. [...] Here he shows that he can also be a lion on the keyboard [Liszt Csardas macabre]. So one asks himself, is he only equipped with a phenomenal technique? That’s absolutely not everything, because despite dashing speed one can absolutely understand the middle part of Rachmaninovs g-minor prelude as a conversation between tenor and soprano.[...] With this concert the pianist spurts with full throttle into pole position of the young pianistic acrobats.
