Manfred Huss



Manfred Huss was born in Vienna and studied there under Hans Swarowsky and Alexander Jenner. Describing his early career as a pianist, which featured concerts and recordings all over europé, the journal Das Orchester wrote that it was ‘as if he wished to inherit Friedrich Gulda’s mantle even while the latter was alive’. Nowadays Manfred Huss prefers to play the fortepiano and directs the Haydn Sinfonietta Wien, which he also founded. The first recordings that he made with this ensemble - with music by Haydn and Schubert - received outstanding international reviews and numerous awards. Manfred Huss has appeared as a soloist and conductor at important festivals in cities including London, Paris, Salzburg, Evian, Florence, New York, Frankfurt (Alte Oper), Brussels (La Monnaie) and Prague. Among the orchestras he has conducted are the City of London Sinfonia, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the Mexico Philharmonic Orchestra, the Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra, the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra; he has also conducted the Tallis Choir and Kodály Choir. In addition to his work as a performer, Manfred Huss has published Hans Swarowsky’s posthumous Wahrung der Gestalt and has written the first large-scale Haydn biography in German.
