Heinrich Agapito Bruecher, born in Heidelberg on 26 April 1986, can already boast of several musical accolades since his first experience of musical training at the age of four and piano lessons at five. Almuth Fischer was his first teacher but, with his talent recognised early, he went on to study with Josef Verebes, Maciej Lukaszczyk and is now with Prof. Lidia Grychtolówna.
At seven years old he won first prize in the regional competition in Darmstadt in which he was the youngest competitor. From there he went on to receive first prize in the Essen Piano Competition in 1995 and again in Youth and Musica in 1996. The Chopin Society for Germany, based in Darmstadt, awarded him a distinction for outstanding musicianship in 1998.
Heinrich Agapito Bruecher has gone on to hone his abilities and performance through the 15th International Bösendorfer Master Class for piano in Austria, under Prof. Midas S. Forrer, Vienna in 1999; the first, second and third International Master Classes for young pianists, held in Denmark in 2000, 2001 and 2002 under Irina Ossipowa, Moscow; eugen Indjic, Paris and Kevin Kenner, London.
Heinrich Agapito Bruecher makes regular appearances performing for lage and small audiences displaying his great musical talent. This outstanding CD was recorded under the musical and artistic direction of Maciej Lukaszczyk, President of the Chopin Society in Germany, and Robert Wittinger.
