Wolfgang Seligo

Pianist and composer Wolfgang Seligo is very much at home in many divergent musical styles. His original music is influenced by jazz, rock, and modern classical music and driven by a funky and powerful sound from the piano. He brought his work onto the international stage in various formations but also solo. He gave concerts in the Forbidden City of Peking, on the Red Square of Moscow, but also in Morocco, Senegal, Chicago and Washington. Other performances include festivals and concert series in Europe, Asia, Africa and the United States.

After jazz studies in Vienna, Wolfgang Seligo gathered his first experiences as a composer, producer and musician in the early 1990s. In addition to his participation in various ensembles in the Viennese scene, he cofounded together with Dhafer Yousseff and Gerhard Reiter the ethnic jazz project “Ziryab” (Extraplatte) which toured in Austria and Germany. He also pursued other activities, including individual activities as a composer and a co-producer for some regional music projects (Ariola BMG, EMI) and working as an advertising and media composer for radio, TV and cinema. But since around 2000, Wolfgang Seligo has been dedicating himself to concert piano music in combination with jazz, rock and improvised music and elements of classical music and toured with his music throughout Europe and Asia as well as Africa and the United States

”Nevertheless, Seligo is obviously extremely talented, both incomposition and performance. It seems like he almost cannot helpplaying in such a bravura manner, but, because there are so manythings happening, it is relatively easy to get beyond the surfaceand enjoy the very fine playing.” Budd Kopman (New York) allaboutjazz
