Jonas Aumiller's victory at the Brahms Piano Competition
The third international Brahms Piano Competition Detmold has a deserving winner: Jonas Aumiller! Jonas thrilled the numerous audience and the jury at the live-streamed final with Brahms’ 1st Piano Concerto, accompanied by the Northwest German Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Florian Ludwig. He prevailed against 70 pianists from 20 countries, 30 of whom were invited to Detmold and he proved his outstanding talent in all four rounds of the competition. “His playing combines structural intelligence, sublime sound control and deep emotionality,” said Prof. Jacob Leuschner, artistic director of the competition. “Such a winner is a credit to the Brahms Competition.” In addition to the prize money and a CD production, many attractive prizewinner concerts await Jonas. Sincere congratulations for this achievement!
