Born in Filderstadt in 1994, pianist Sophia Weidemann began her musical training on the piano when she was ten years old. Just five years later, she became a junior student at the Stuttgart University of Music and Performing Arts in the class of Florian Wiek. She completed her bachelor’s and master’s studies with top grades at the State University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart, the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, and the Latvian Academy of Music Jāzeps Vītols in Riga.

In 2020, she was accepted for the school’s postgraduate concert exam, a program designed to train highly talented students, in which Péter Nagy and Florian Wiek mentored her.

In January 2023, she played the Goldberg Variations by Johann Sebastian Bach in the first part of her final examinations. The commission awarded her the mark “passed with distinction” for her interpretation. She
received further vital impulses for her artistic work from Alfred Brendel, Till Fellner,
Mikhail Voskresensky, and Ian Fountain, among others.

She is a multiple prizewinner of national and international competitions. With her chamber music ensemble Kyklos Chambers, she won first prize at the Virtuoso & Belcanto Festival in Italy in the summer of 2022. As a soloist, she won first prizes at the International Piano Competition “Alexander Scriabin” (2019) and at the International Bartók Piano Competition (2015). She is a scholarship holder of Live Music Now, the Lyceum- Club, the Jürgen and Helga Drews Foundation and Jeunesses Musicales Germany e. V..
