In January 2015 Elisabeth Brauß won first prize at the competition “Ton und Erklärung” in Frankfurt and performed with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony in the finale. This prize is awarded annually by the Cultural Society of the Ger-man Economy in BDI; OehmsClassics also presents the prize winner CD each year. The 2015 prize winner obviously has a great career before her: she has already given guest performances at the Konzerthaus in Berlin, the Hamburg Laeiszhalle, the Mariinksy Theatre in St. Petersburg, at the Beethovenfest in Bonn, at the Heidelberg Spring Festival and regularly at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival and the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival. In Oc-tober 2016 she also won the KlavierOlymp in Bad Kissingen. If those aren’t reasons for hope, what are?
