Prof. Wolfgang Schulz© Ulla Schulz
During his major career, Wolfgang Schulz has not only brilliantly performed all of the major flute solos of the operatic and symphonic literature, but has also attained renown as an international soloist. He has made appearances at the most important festivals (Salzburg Festival, Vienna Festival, Carinthian Summer, Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, Lucerne Festival, Ravenna Festival) and since 1996 has been the artistic director of the classical music festival "Bonheur musical" in Lourmarin, France. His repertoire spans from the baroque to the modern era, where he gives special attention to the works of Austrian composers such as Helmut Eder, Friedrich Cerha, Iván Eröd, Erich Urbanner and Herbert Willi, all of whom have dedicated compositions to him which he premiered.
With the Vienna Philharmonic, Wolfgang Schulz has appeared 45 times as a soloist in numerous European countries as well as in Asia and North America, performing flute concertos by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Jacques Ibert, Helmut Eder, Lorin Maazel, under the conductors Claudio Abbado, Leonard Bernstein, Sir Colin Davis, Christoph von Dohnányi, Leopold Hager, Bernard Haitink, Lorin Maazel, Zubin Mehta, Seiji Ozawa, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Horst Stein und Marcello Viotti, as well as "Halil" by Leonard Bernstein and the Concerto for Violin and Flute by Bohuslav Martinů.
Since the beginning of his career, Wolfgang Schulz was, of course, also very active in chamber music, with the ensemble Wien-Berlin receiving the greatest attention. The most important partners in his duo recitals have been Helmut Deutsch, Elisabeth Leonskaja, András Schiff and Stefan Vladar. His numerous recordings have received many prizes (Wiener Flötenuhr, Edison-Prize, Grand Prix du disque, Diapason d'or) and his artistic accomplishments have been acknowledged on the state and national level with many prominent awards. In the history of the Vienna Philharmonic, which presented him with the Honorary Ring in 1999, the contribution made by Professor Wolfgang Schulz has made a rich impression which will last long past his 41 years of his service to the orchestra.
