Mario Häring, who won Second prize at the 2018 Leeds International Piano Competition and received the Yaltah Menuhin Award for his talent as a chamber musician, is considered one of the most promising German pianists of his generation. Mario studied at the Julius Stern Institute in Berlin under Professor Fabio Bidini even before he finished high school. Subsequently, he studied under Lars Vogt and Karl-Heinz Kämmerling at the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien in Hanover and graduated in 2017 with the highest marks in his class.
After his first concert, at the Berlin Philharmonic Hall in 2003 together with the Berliner Symphoniker, he performed with other great orchestras at famous venues in Constance (Philharmonie), Hamburg (Laeistzhalle) and Tokyo (Metropolitan Theater, Bunka Kaikan, Suntory Hall) and participated in several festivals (Schwetzinger Festspiele, Schleswig-Holstein Musikfestival, Festival de Lucerne, Kissinger Sommer).
Moreover, Mario Häring has a passion for performing chamber music, which he shares with the violinist Noé Inui. Together, they recorded a CD entitled Identity that was nominated for the International Classical Music Awards. Mario also recorded — on a C. Bechstein D 282 concert grand piano — a very colorful CD with works by Debussy that was released in 2018 on the Ars Production label and was highly praised by critics.
