The GershWIEN Project
Two soloists and chamber musicians, with Viennese warmth and cosmopolitan perception.
Their debut album, released in April 2019, combines modern humor and dark deepness, America's jazz of the 20s and 30s, Spanish gypsy virtuosity, German elaborate
romance and French singing melancholy all on one CD and with that makes it to probably the most diverse album for clarinet and piano.
Maria Radutu, piano was considered one of the great prodigies in Romania in the 90s and won over 20 national and international awards. She studied and received her Concert Diploma at the Music University in Vienna. Her solo career brought her to the stage of the Golden Hall of the Musikverein, the Carnegie Hall, the Auditorio Nacional Madrid, the Vienna State Opera and touring Asia and the USA. In 2013 she released her debut album “Joujoux” and in 2016 her concept album “Insomnia” (DECCA).
Markus Adenberger, clarinet grew up in a beautiful valley in Austria, where he first came in touch with the traditional Austrian music through the local wind band, before studying at the University of Arts in Graz and later in Vienna. After several engagements in Germany, he returned to his native Austria and now performs as a member of various orchestras in Vienna, e.g. the Vienna Chamber Orchestra. He is also a much sought-after pedagogue (since 2017 he is professor at the Global Summer Institute of Music at Virginia Commonwealth University, US) and soloist. His love for chamber music allows him to regularly perform with great and inspiring musicians from various musical genres.
