Deutsche Grammophon has signed pianist Ingolf Wunder to its roster of artists.

The Austrian pianist, who took second prize at last year’s Warsaw International Chopin Competition, will launch his Yellow-label career with a solo Chopin recital, due out in April.

“It’s an honour and privilege,” said Wunder. “To record for Deutsche Grammophon is every pianist’s dream. I hope my recordings will add to that legacy.”

Michael Lang, president of DG, said of his new signing: “Ingolf Wunder is a gifted artist, who has deservedly won acclaim for his music-making; the music - and its beauty - focuses his audience’s attention entirely on his playing.”

It’s the latest in a series of young artist signings - Wunder was born in 1985 - by the major labels, including Polish soprano Aleksandra Kurzak and American cellist Alisa Weilerstein by the Decca label, and Georgian soprano Nino Machaidze by Sony.
