Clara Frühstück

(Oh Magic...): Performance, Music

Music was my first love.
Und mit drei war ich in Mozart verliebt...

She developed her passion for the piano and for classical music at the age of three. Among her teachers were Johannes Kutrowatz, Markus Schirmer, Paul Badura-Skoda, Rudolf Kehrer, Matti Raekallio, Henri Sigfridsson, the Altenberg Trio and Ralf Gothóni. She holds diplomas from Musikuniversität Wien and Kunstuniversität Graz. Clara was among the lauretes in numerous competitions, and performed in recitals and as a soloist with orchestra in concert halls throughout Europe. She celebrates chamber music in various constellations, most notably her piano trio, the Trio Frühstück, which she founded in 2010. A constant focus in her programming of music events lies on a liaison of old and new music, personal interchange with composers and interdisciplinary collaborations.
Besides classical music, Clara loves other arts from her childhood days on, developing ideas to promote innovative approaches to music, especially for „beginners“. She performed, amogn others with the pop band Garish, or with amateurs at the Styriarte Graz, and trusts in the uniting power of her music when playing in places like Jerusalem or Tehran. In may 2016 she left an enchanted audience with a furious melange as artistic director at the klangfrühling Schlaining festival. Lately, Clara puts her attention increasingly on contemporary dance, culminating in joint performances with Superamas and with Simon Mayer.
