At the age of 14, Marie‐Luise Hinrichs was a last minute replacement for Stefan Askenase, playing Mozart's Piano Concerto KV 467 with great success. This fortunate event made it clear to her, that she was to become a concert pianist. She pursued her training in Hamburg, Essen and Cologne and has been greatly influenced by Yara Bernette, Pavel Gililov and Renate Kretschmar‐Fischer, as well as the Amadeus Quartet.
Ms. Hinrichs' concert activities have taken her to the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Sydney Town Hall, Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center in New York, Tanglewood Festival, and in Paris to the Chatelet and Théatre des Champs Elysées. Together with Christian Zacharias she has recorded on EMI Classics works for two pianos by Mozart. This CD was nominated for the 1998 „Cannes Classical Award“.
