Friedrich Kleinhapl, Austrian cellist with Belgian roots, finishes his studies in Graz. The final step of his education takes place in Paris, where he was instructed by one of the best teachers of the world: Phillippe Muller. Kleinhapl then got into contact with very renowned musicians: Claudio Abbado considered “his talent worth promoting”, Yehudi Menuhin characterized him as a “highly gifted young cellist” and the famous cellist Paul Tortelier was deeply impressed by his “brilliant technique”. London, Paris, Brussels, Antwerp, Berlin, Bonn, Hamburg, Copenhagen, Bologna, Milan, Triest, Prague and Budapest are only few of the cities where Kleinhapl has performed. He’s also given concerts in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Studying with famous artists like Aldo Antognazzi, Pavel Gililov and Rudolf Kehrer, Andreas Woyke finished his classical education with special honor and since that time engagements and a number of international competition prizes lead him into nearly every continent of the world. In press reviews his art of interpretation is highly honored, which never stays technically superficial. Since 2003, Andreas Wokye has been permanent Duo-partner of Friedrich Kleinhapl. In March 2008, they have been awarded the international “Super Sonic Award” for their recording of Rachmaninov and Franck Sonatas. The SACD with Beethoven Sonatas is the fifth recording of the Duo.
