Dieter Flury is principal flutist of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and while the orchestra are touring Australia towards the end of September Dieter, together with his chamber music partner Maria Prinz (piano) will 'cross the ditch' to present this concert and a masterclass at the New Zealand School of Music.

The concert programme will be:

J.S. Bach – Sonata for flute and piano b-minor BVW 1030
Schulhoff – Sonata
Debussy – L'après midi d'un faune
Prokofiev – Sonata op.94

Praised by the press for his “soft, sensitive sound, perfect technique and his musical intelligence”, flutist Dieter Flury has been called a “flute Paganini” thanks to his “phenomenal finger and breath-technique”. Solo flutist of the Vienna Philharmonic since 1981, and the orchestra’s general manager since 2005, he enjoys a multi-faceted career as a leading soloist, recitalist, chamber musician, teacher, and orchestral leader. Mr. Flury is a Professor at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz, Austria. He previously served on the faculty of the Vienna Music Academy and the Vienna Conservatory, and leads master classes around the world. For more information, visit www.flury.at

Hailed as “brilliant” and “deeply sensitive” by Das Orchester Magazine, pianist Maria Prinz is widely in demand as a soloist, recitalist and chamber musician. Ms. Prinz has performed with leading orchestras throughout Europe, including the Vienna Philharmonic, collaborating with renowned conductors Riccardo Muti at the Salzburg Festival and Seiji Ozawa in Vienna, in Sofia and at the “March Music Days” Festival in Russe, Bulgaria under Sir Neville Marriner and in the “Musikverein” Hall in Vienna. She performed the Bulgarian première of "Oiseaux Exotiques" by Olivier Messiaen. Maria Prinz has made recordings of the Haydn and Mozart piano concertos with the Sofia Symphony Orchestra, and chamber music recordings with clarinetists, Alfred Prinz and Petko Radev, and soprano Krassimira Stoyanova. Ms. Prinz teaches at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. For more information, visit www.mariaprinz.com
