Helmut Deutsch


Born in Vienna in 1945, Helmut Deutsch is widely recognised as one of the finest lieder pianist working today. He studied and later taught piano, composition and musicology in his native city, winning the Vienna Composition Prize; his first long-term lieder relationship was with the soprano Irmgard Seefried, since which he has worked with many of the world’s finest singers including Matthias Goerne, Jonas Kaufmann, Diana Damrau, Hermann Prey, Mauro Peter, Dietrich Henschel, Angelika Kirchschlager and Hans Hotter.
