Notes & Reviews:

Severin Von Eckardstein has won prizes in numerous competitions. Among these are the Hamburg Steinway Competition, the Incontro Internazionale Giovani Pianisti in Italy, the Feruccio-Busoni Competition in Bozen, and the ARD Competition in Munich). In 2000, von Eckardstein received the third prize and in addition the special prize for best interpretation of contemporary music at the Leeds International Piano Competition. In June 2003 Severin von Eckardstein won the first prize at the highly prestigious international Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
As an encore we have three very short pieces by Prokofieff, Scriabin, and Tchaikovsky. Although born in Germany, Eckardstein has a special affinity for the music of the Russian masters and includes many of them on his programs. He also has the distinction of taking first prize in the 2003 Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels. At age 34 his playing is mature enough to establish him as a fully seasoned artist.
