'Luchino Belmonti' School of Music is glad to present its forthcoming Piano Masterclass held by the famous and worldwide renowned Maestro Wolfgang Manz. The course will take place at Belmonti’s classrooms, located in the heart of Imperia Porto Maurizio, an historical and charming small town overlooking the Ligurian Sea. As Senior Director and on behalf of all the school management, I wish to all participants an enjoyable stay and a profitable masterclass.

Wolfgang Manz

Wolfgang Manz Wolfgang Manz, born in 1960, is prizewinner of many prestigious international piano competitions such as Leeds (1981) and Brussels (Concours Reine Elisabeth, 1983), the first time that a German pianist won 2nd prizes in these competitions, furthermore winner of the Mendelssohn-Bartholdy – Prize Berlin 1980, 2nd prize at the National German Music Competition in Bonn 1982 and a jury discretionary award in the 1989 Van Cliburn International Pianoforte Competition in Texas/USA. Manz has been influenced by two very different traditions, by the Czech pianist Drahomir Toman, a representative of the Eastern European school originating from Theodor Leschetizky, whereas he adapted elements of the German tradition at the renowned University of Music at Hanover in the class of Prof. Karlheinz Kämmerling.


Lessons will be held at Belmonti classrooms from the 25th to the 29th of April 2018.
