Passion &ndash Depth - Sensuality These are only some of the attributes Lydia Maria Bader’s performances are characterized by the press. The German magazine Focus called her “The New Classical Superstar”. With her topically designed concert programs (eg. “ELEMENTS – Earth, Wind, Water & Fire” or “Music of the North”) the young German pianist is a welcome guest at many concert venues and festivals in Germany, Europe and Asia. In 2009 she was invited to perform her first concert tour in China. Followed by a big media attention (Press, Radio, Television) and titulated by the local press as the “German Piano Princess”, she performed solo recitals and held public masterclasses. Since then, she returns to China on a regular basis. Lydia started her life as a pianist at the age of four. Born in 1981 in Bavaria/Germany into a family with musical background, she was taught by her father during the first years. Already after two years she won the 1st prize in the national competition “Jugend musiziert”, where in the following years she won 13 1st prizes overall. Other significant rewards were the “Concert-Prize” in the International Piano Competition FLAME 2005 in Paris and the 1st prize in the Glière-Competition in Germany. Lydia studied at the University for Music and Performing Arts of Munich with Prof. K.-H. Mrongovius and Prof. Michael Schäfer. Significant influence on her musical development was a one year scholarship at the prestigious Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris in the class of Michel Beroff. In 2011 she finished the postgraduate course at the Music University in Graz, where she was a student of the famous Austrian concert pianist Prof. Markus Schirmer. In addition, she attended masterclasses with András Schiff, Jacques Rouvier, Joaquin Soriano, Mikhail Vosskressenky, Pascal Devoyon, Bernard Ringeissen and Ludwig Hofmann. Lydia received scholarships from “Jürgen Ponto Stiftung”, “Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben” and Giesecke & Devrient, combined with a CD recording in 2004. In 2006 she was selected to participate in the official CD recording “Young German Pianists” of the University for Music in Munich. Lydia has performed in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Netherlands, France, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Russia and China. She is frequently invited at festivals in France and Austria, like the “Festwochen Gmunden”, where she performed piano concertos by Franz Liszt and Sergei Rachmaninoff.
