Wolfram Wagner

The Austrian composer Wolfram Wagner, born in Vienna in 1962, is the author of a diverse oeuvre. It includes four chamber operas, such as Endlich Schluss (2002, based on a work by Peter Turrini), Sarabande (2008, based on a work by Leo Perutz) and Türkenkind (2011, based on a work by Irene Montjoye), but also solo concertos for piano, violin and flute as well as sacred music, for example the Hiob Oratorium (1989), the Augustinus Oratorium (2000), a Gloria (2006) and a Missa Sancti Crucis (2012). For the Vienna Boys’ Choir, Wagner composed Time (2009) and Mr. Double Bass (2010). Educated in Vienna, London and Frankfurt (where he was a guest student of Hans Zender), the Viennese composer teaches composition as an adjunct professor at the University of Music in his hometown. His Symphonia für großes Orchester was given its first performance by the Wiener Jeunesse Orchester at the Konzerthaus Berlin during the very first edition of Young Euro Classic in 2000.
