Karla-Maria Cording, the NOZ once wrote:
” …manages and inspires the musical heritage like the giant Fafner the treasure of the Nibelungen.
With great attention to her fellow players, with sheer irrepressible power and breathtaking accuracy in the coursing piano passages, as well as sensitive touch technique, she guards and develops the precious musical asset with great devotion and lets the complex sound structure shine in the most diverse, even mysterious colors.”
In a nutshell:
Karla-Maria Cording is a graduate of the music academies in Hanover and Munich. Kirsti Hjort, Marta Sosinska, Vassilia Efstathiadou, Karl-Heinz Kämmerling and Margarita Höhenrieder were her teachers.
In addition, she graduated as Magistra Artium at the University of Würzburg with a thesis on Ravel’s piano cycle “Gaspard de la nuit”.
She also studied with the Würzburg Piano Trio, which she founded in 2001 together with her sister Katharina Cording and Peer-Christoph Pulc, in Hatto Beyerle’s chamber music class at the Hanover Academy of Music.
Since 2006 she has been teaching a large piano class as well as chamber music at the University of Würzburg. She has also been engaged as a lied accompanist at master classes of the German Schubert Society and as a juror at the “Jugend musiziert” competition.
Her personal passion is Ravel’s and Scriabin’s piano works.
Decorated with numerous competition prizes at an early age, she has performed at venues such as the Cologne Philharmonie, the Kurhaus Meran, the Bad Reichenhall Philharmonie, on Crete and at the EXPO Hannover.
She has recorded several CDs and has been broadcast many times on radio and television.
Since childhood she has been making music together with her sister Katharina. The sisters made their official debut in 1998 at the Würzburg Residence, sparking a storm of enthusiasm at the time.
