Paul Badura-Skoda, 91, is on the go

He played a recital yesterday at the Eroica-Saal of Palais Lobkowitz.

Next month, he’s playing four-hand with Menahem Pressler at the Musikverein.

Menahem is 95.

Way to go.

  • I still remember him when he was Artist-in-Residence at the University of Wisconsin in Madison in the 1960s. Also played oboe in Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto with Otto-Werner Mueller conducting. Great memories of this man.

  • What an inspiration! If only Leon Fleischer and Jörg Demus could join them: they could then play Smetana’s lovely Sonata for two-pianos, eight hands.

  • I saw and heard Paul Badura-Skoda perform many years ago when he was an artist in residence at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He was amazing then, and probably more so now. It’s great to see he’s still so active.

  • his Beethoven & Schubert Sonatas on fortepianos from his personal collection are amazing things !

  • It’s also worth noting that Paul’s wife, the eminent musicologist Dr. Eva Badura, with whom he has collaborated in numerous scholarly endeavors, is also still with us, and with Paul, at age 90.
