Burkard Schliessmann perfectly embodies musical Romanticism in his exceptionally expressive approach, never 'smoothing out' textures and rhythms in what can be very troubled and dramatic music, but instead searching for that music's soul - it's heart. Also a fine organist, professional scuba diver and owner of show-winning pedigree Maine Coon cats, he attracts awards at every turn including the Goethe-Plakette of the city of Frankfurt-am-Main; Classical Finalist 2019 International Acoustic Music Awards; 2 Gold Medals in the 2018 Global Music Awards; 3 Silver Medals in both the 2017 and 2018 Global Music Awards. Schliessmann is a Steinway Artist, recording and performing on his own Model D concert grand.
