BIO

As a pianist and a sixth-tone harmonium player, Miroslav Beinhauer (*1993) focuses on contemporary music and the music of the 20th century. In the role of soloist, he collaborated with composers such as Phill Niblock, Klaus Lang, Bernhard Lang, Georg Friedrich Haas, Marc Sabat or Petr Bakla, with festivals in Europe and in the USA like musikprotokoll, Sound Plasma Festival, Strings of Autumn, Ostrava Days, Moravian Autumn, Janáček Brno, Music Forum Hradec Králové, MusicOlomouc, MicroFest, Konvergencie or Gentse Feesten, and orchestras and ensembles including the PKF – Prague Philharmonia, Brno Philharmonic, Janacek Philharmonic Ostrava, Hradec Králové Philharmonic Orchestra, Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra Olomouc, Brno Contemporary Orchestra, Opava Chamber Orchestra, Kubin Quartet, S.E.M. Ensemble, Prague Quiet Music Collective or String Noise. Notable performances include Piano concerto no. 2 by Magnus Lindberg (cond. by Heiko Mathias Förster), Piano concerto “Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes?” by John Adams (cond. by Andreas Sebastian Weiser) or Piano concerto by Esa-Pekka Salonen (cond. by Marko Ivanović). Sought-after chamber musician, Beinhauer is member of the international Ostravská Banda ensemble (collaboration with conductors such as Bruno Ferrandis, Johannes Kalitzke, Petr Kotík, JIří Rožeň or Owen Underhill). Recently, he has been involved in numerous studio productions, including three album recordings of piano music by Petr Bakla or Milan Knížák. Beinhauer also regularly records for the Czech Radio.

Miroslav Beinhauer is probably the only person in the world to master Alois Hába’s sixth-tone harmonium. His involvement with the instrument began with taking part in the first ever performance of Hába´s sixth-tone opera Thy Kingdom Come, and continued with a recording of Hába’s only solo work for the instrument, Six pieces for a sixth-tone harmonium op. 37. Since then, Beinhauer has encouraged new repertoire for this unique harmonium. As a result of his collaboration with the Ensemble for New Music Tallinn, composers Georg Friedrich Haas, Klaus Lang, Marc Sabat, Gérard Pape, Arash Yazdani and others have created new pieces.

The 2022/2023 season highlights include several performances in Europe and in the USA including the first performances of pieces by Phill Niblock, Klaus Lang, Bernhard Lang, as well as several piano concerto performances including the performance of John Adams’s piano concerto “Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes?” conducted by Andreas Sebastian Weiser, recording of a solo CD with pieces for the sixth-tone harmonium or recording of the complete piano works by Alois Hába.

Miroslav Beinhauer studied at the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno with Helena Weiser, as well as the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Vienna with Jan Jiracek von Arnim, and the Royal Conservatory of Ghent with Daan Vandewalle.
