Stephan Möller's reputation as a pianist is based on his award at the International Beethoven Piano Competition in Vienna in 1985. Since then, he has been active in concerts throughout Europe, Japan, China, South Korea and North and South America. In addition to the general repertoire, his special focus is on the works of Viennese classical music, especially those of Ludwig van Beethoven. A worldwide tour "Beethoven 32x32" is planned for 2020/21, Beethoven's 250th year of birth, with performances of the 32 Beethoven sonatas in 32 different cities!

A pianist legend invites his audience to his concert at the Wiener Musikverein. Möller's enthusiasm for playing continues unabated at the age of 65. His interpretations are always characterized by the highest precision, credibility, style and virtuosity.

Stephan Möller makes pianistic CD history by playing rarities like Beethoven's Great Fugue with himself on four hands on a Bösendorfer computer grand piano and recording Richard Wagner's entire original piano work. His complete recording of the 32 Beethoven sonatas is in progress.

Stephan Möller was artistic collaborator Herbert von Karajans and other world-famous conductors at the Salzburg Festival. Stephan Möller has been teaching at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna since 1990 and also at the Prayner Conservatory since 2000. He is often invited to master courses and competition juries at home and abroad. Stephan Möller has been President of the "Vienna International Pianists" and their successful annual festival "VIP Academy" since 1998. In 2009 he founded the "International Rosario Marciano Piano Competition".

A tribute to Beethoven on the occasion of his 250th year of birth. The 32 piano sonatas, according to Hans von Bülow "the New Testament of all piano players", are certainly one of the main pillars of Beethoven's oeuvre alongside the 9 symphonies!

Let yourself be enchanted, experience grandeur, intimacy and high culture. Enjoy the entire sonata work in a uniquely concentrated form: the life's work of a genius in 2 days!
Möller's characteristic, always lively and yet changeable piano sound is an obvious declaration of love for the music, which culminates in an unsurpassed joy of playing.
