Olga Scheps

At an early age Olga Scheps had already developed her own unique style of keyboard playing, which combines intense emotiveness and powerful expressivity with extraordinary pianistic technique. Besides the well-known works for piano, her repertory today consists of compositions that are rarely heard in the concert hall, including the posthumous Études of Frédéric Chopin, Franz Liszt’s Malédiction or Olivier Messiaen’s Les Oiseaux exotiques. Her solo recitals are as popular with audiences all over the world as her acclaimed appearances as a soloist with orchestra and her chamber projects. Such noted conductors as Thomas Dausgaard, Lorin Maazel, José Serebrier, Marcus Bosch, Ralf Weikert, Michel Tabachnik, Antoni Wit, and Ivor Bolton have invited Olga Scheps to collaborate with them. Olga Scheps now performs with great success in world-famous concert halls such as the Elbphilharmonie, the Berlin and Cologne Philharmonie, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Cadogan Hall London, the Zurich Tonhalle, and the Suntory Hall Tokyo. She is a soughtafter guest at festivals like the Rheingau Musik Festival, Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Kissinger Sommer, Heidelberger Frühling, Klavier-Festival Ruhr, Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, MDR Musiksommer and Lucerne Festival am Piano.

Since 2009 Olga Scheps has been an exclusive Sony Classical artist. Her debut album Chopin immediately won an ECHO Klassik award. The two recordings that followed, Russian Album and Schubert, were also highly praised by the press. Her fourth Sony Classical release features Chopin’s Piano Concertos nos. 1 and 2 with the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra. She broke new ground with the album 100 % Scooter – Piano Only, on which she recorded arrangements of the most famous Scooter hits by Sven Helbig. Following a recording of Tchaikovsky’s 1st Piano Concerto with the WDR Symphony Orchestra, Olga Scheps’ album Melody features repertoire ranging from Bach to Aphex Twin, tracing an arc across four centuries. Olga Scheps is a Steinway Artist.
