Gregor Vidovic

The way until now...

Gregor Vidovic was born 1971 in Munich, Germany. A major part of his youth he lived in various foreign countries. These journeys influenced him strongly – from the beginning on, cultural diversity and cosmopolitan ideas were something natural – values that define him even today as a person and artist.

The culturally inspiring journeys had also their negative aspects: he started playing piano rather late – at the age of 13 years.

Nevertheless, he was able to start his academic piano studies at the age of 18, finishing them several years later on the Music Academy Cologne, Germany.

He likes to share his knowledge – from private piano lessons to workshops, lectures and master classes on numerous music institutions world-wide.

Gregor Vidovic believes that art is more then just an aesthetic value for the sake of its own – he regularly combines his concerts with charitable projects: promotion of young musicians, support for victims of natural catastrophes, funding of international social projects.  

For his artistic work and his social commitment Gregor Vidovic received various honors:

He is Paul Harris Fellow of the Rotary Club international and member of the Lions Club International.

Gregor Vidovic’s „specialty“ are lecture-recitals. In this compact and inspiring form he presents classical music literature in words and music. For the rookies among the concert audience this is an exciting and motivating way to get started and for the experienced audience this is a source of interesting information about composers and the social and cultural aspects of different periods of history.

At present, Gregor Vidovic offers following lecture-recitals:

The Triumph Of the Piano

The piano is central to the arts and culture in the Occident and they can hardly be imagined without it.  A mere hundred years lie between the invention of the piano and it becoming the dominant instrument for virtuosos, composers and music lovers alike. Many of the great composers were also celebrated pianists – Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, Rachmaninoff...
In this lecture-recital the pianist Gregor Vidovic charts the historic development of this fascinating instrument with stories of its composers, music from their masterpieces, insights into the historic circumstances, the relevant zeitgeist and plenty of anecdotal accounts.  Piano pieces from various periods round off this lecture-recital musically.

The Baroque “Clavier”-Music

How could a lecture-recital on Baroque music focus on an instrument that did not exist?  The piano as we know it was not invented until the Baroque period was practically over. One answer lies in the broad approach of the composers of time.  Even Bach’s son, Carl Philipp Emanuel, still used the collective term “clavier” for all keyboard instruments, whether he meant a harpsichord, clavichord, or fortepiano.  Another very convincing argument for music lovers and pianists alike is the fact that the music of the baroque masters is incredibly beautiful and should not be missed by anyone.
Experience Johann Sebastian Bach, Domenico Scarlatti and Jean-Philippe Rameau in words and music! 

The Vienna Classics

What do Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven have in common? They were the major representatives of the Vienna Classics. Named after the city that became the de facto cultural and political capital of late 18th Century Europe, this music period was defined by the assimilation of classical values like aesthetics, architecture, drama and perfection of form. The great composers of the period knew how to transform these values in audible pieces of art – into masterpieces that significantly influenced occidental civilisation.
Gregor Vidovic describes with words and music one of the most thrilling periods of European music history. 

Ludwig van Beethoven – The Zenith of the Vienna Classics

The name Ludwig van Beethoven is synonymous with classical music and the virtues of classical art all over the world. What put him into this unique position? Probably what he wasn’t is just as much a part of it, as what he was.
He wasn’t a child prodigy like Mozart, he wasn’t a superstar like Liszt, he wasn’t an all-rounder like Haydn, he found no serenity in religion like Bach; instead he was a very much a grounded human being and a humanist through and through.  Justice and liberty were the virtues that determined his personality and shaped him as an artist. The fact that he remained true to these virtues throughout his life in spite of hard times that climaxed in deafness – in many ways the maximum penalty fate could deal a musician – makes him one of the most exceptional personalities of classical music, and rightfully so.

Frederic Chopin – Between Vanity and Revolution

Irrespective of personal musical interests, it is almost impossible to find someone who hasn’t heard of Frederic Chopin. For music lovers his name is synonymous with piano music, romanticism, ingenuity, virtuosity and elegance of piano play and for pianists he is the pinnacle of compositional and pianistic synthesis.
The pianist Gregor Vidovic describes in this lecture-recital the complex correlation between Chopin’s highly conservative and vain personality and his revolutionary ingenuity as a musician. 

Franz Liszt POST 2011 – After THE YEAR OF LISZT

The year 2011 was a year of great significance for the name and fame of Franz Liszt. On the occasion of the second centennial of his birthday, musicologists everywhere presented the latest results of their Liszt-research, and all around the world pianists were playing his music – from “greatest hits” to “previously unreleased”. All of this modernized our perception of Liszt and liberated him from many old prejudices.
In this lecture-recital Gregor Vidovic attempts to summarise this new view of Liszt with piano pieces as well as important aspects of his life, personality and the zeitgeist of the 19th century world. 

Chopin und Liszt – Between Tradition and Avant-garde

Irrespective of personal musical preference, it is almost impossible to find someone who never heard the names of Frederic Chopin and Franz Liszt. For music lovers these names are synonyms for pianistic elegance, virtuosity, the peak of piano playing, but also for romanticism, emotions, ingenuity and opulence of pianistic ideas.
The pianist Gregor Vidovic presents in this lecture-recital the intricate artistic, social and historic correlations that define these two extraordinary composers. Historic facts, legends, anecdotes and descriptions of the 19th century zeitgeist complete this journey through time to two of the greatest personalities of musical history. 

The German Romantics

The term “German Romantics” is primarily associated with the literary Romantics, like Schlegel, Novalis, E.T.A. Hoffmann or Eichendorff. It is usually only a second thought that leads to music. This chronology is actually correct – while literature was already firmly in the hands of the Romantics, music was still seeing out the period of the Vienna Classics. But a new generation of composers was just about to appear, and inspired by the novel literature and philosophy of the time, they were to lead the German music with great steps towards musical Romanticism.
This lecture-recital presents in words and music some of the greatest German composers – Franz Schubert, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms.

The Russian Romantics

Glinka, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Skrjabin... – these are all composers whose musical themes are well known to everybody, regardless of personal music taste. It is an interesting question, what kind of people composed these masterpieces that, due to their intense melodic, harmonic and drama, enchant the listeners. 
The pianist Gregor Vidovic presents in this lecture-recital some of the most important composers of the Russian Romanticism – their lives, their times and their piano masterpieces. 

Performing dates are accessible on the German language version of this website. 

All lecture-recitals can be presented in German, English, Serbo-Croatian and Portuguese language.

COncert Reviews

... a high-precision specialist at the piano, a virtuoso faultless and infallible.
— Neue Rhein Zeitung, Deutschland

In the „Pictures at an Exhibition“ Gregor Vidovic was capable of creating all of that what the composer requests from those who venture this difficult work – the spectacular colors, the drama and the expressivity, the tenderness, the mastering of technical difficulties, the brilliance of the passages and the depth of the expression.
— Cuxhavener Nachrichten, Deutschland

The freedom of his thoughts combined with almost infinite pianistic capabilities strive to a single purified goal: clear harmonic structures, intelligent organization of music and absolutely original characterization of the musical essence free of conventions and egocentricity.
— Slobodna Dalmacija, Kroatien
