Markus Groh gained immediate world attention after winning first prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels in 1995, the first German to do so. Since then, his unique sound and astonishing technique have confirmed his place among the finest pianists in the world. Sharing the same birthday with Alfred Brendel, Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, and Maurizio Pollini, he has proven himself worthy of their company.

With a career spanning three decades, Mr. Groh has performed with over 140 orchestras worldwide. In North America those orchestras include the Cleveland Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, and the National Symphony Orchestra; in Europe Mr. Groh has appeared with the London Symphony, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Budapest Festival Orchestra, Finnish Radio Symphony, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, and most of the top German orchestras under such distinguished conductors as Ivan Fischer, Neeme Järvi, Hannu Lintu, Fabio Luisi, Kent Nagano, Jonathan Nott, and David Robertson.

In 2019 Sony Classical released its first recording featuring Markus Groh performing Danny Elfman’s piano quartet with members of the Berlin Philharmonic. Mr. Groh’s previous solo recordings all won prestigious awards including “Editor’s Choice” (Gramophone Magazine), “Stern des Monats” (Fonoforum), “Recording of the Month” (Musicweb International), and “Supersonic Award” (Pizzicato Magazine).
