Marian Rosenfeld immediately captivates listeners with her intensity: her passionate and personal playing leaves no one untouched.
Born into a family of musicians in Lucerne, she was accepted into Homero Francesch's master class at the Zurich Conservatory at the age of thirteen and made her debut at the Zurich Tonhalle at the age of 14.
With the 2nd prize at the Eurovision Competition for Young Musicians in Copenhagen in 1986, she is still the most successful Swiss in this competition. Further prizes and awards as a soloist or as a chamber musician followed, e.g. nationally the multiple award of the study prize of the Migros- Genossenschafts-Bund or a renowned sponsorship prize of the city of Zug, as well as the International Competition of the ARD (in duo with her brother Rafael Rosenfeld) and the International Robert Schumann Competition in Zwickau.
This was followed by concerts in leading houses in Europe, including Vienna, Salzburg, Lisbon, Berlin and London (Queen Elizabeth Hall, Wigmore Hall). (*name credits)
Chamber music performances brought her together with many Swiss or international artists (**name credits), and repeated invitations to record for Swiss, German, Hungarian and Danish radio stations rounded off this concert activity.
For personal reasons, despite the brilliant start to her career, a phase of conscious withdrawal followed, which enabled Marian Rosenfeld to develop further outside the classical concert business.
The musician now incorporates these experiences into her interpretations. Enriched by her diverse experiences, her playing speaks to listeners with depth and commitment. She breaks new ground in the concert experience and searches for new formats. For example, she combines music with research into philosophical questions or opens her world to a broad audience, enabling them to also engage with the depth and universality of classical piano music.
Today Marian Rosenfeld is once again passionately on stage, delighting audiences with her vitality, energy and charisma.
* Examples include engagements at the Prague Spring Festival, Savonlinna Opera Festival, Lucerne Festival as well as concerts with the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg, Munich Chamber Orchestra, Radio Symphony Orchestra Basel or Zurich Chamber Orchestra. She has played with conductors such as Franz Welser-Möst, Pinchas Steinberg, Olivier Cuendet, Hans Graf, Hans Stadlmaier, Hans-Dieter Baum and Mario Venzago.
