Her debut album—inspired by her interest in scholarship and performance—brings together music of three centuries by composers who were active in Vienna: Mozart – Brahms – Berg. Before arriving at Harvard University in 2007 Ms. Röder graduated from the Mozarteum in Salzburg and worked intensively with the world-renowned Beethoven and Brahms specialist Gerhard Oppitz at the Musik Hochschule in Munich. In addition to her formal piano studies she focused on the study of period instruments and performance practice, explored orchestral repertoires as a guest student of Bruno Weil’s conducting class and attended master classes with András Schiff and Karl-Heinz Kämmerling. For her extraordinary artistic achievements Seda Röder was awarded several prestigious fellowships, amongst them grants from the Austrian Department of Education, the German Academic Exchange Program, the merit-based scholarship of the “Alumni Foundation of the Austrian St. Georg-Kolleg, Istanbul”, as well as the Richard-Wagner-Scholarship in Munich.
