In the nearly three decades since Richard Fuller arrived in Vienna, Austria - city of Haydn,Mozart and countless other prominent musicians and composers - his artistic work has given decisive impulse to the fortepiano revival in Austria and Germany. Today he is one of the pre-eminent interpreters of the fortepiano repertoire. Richard is among the very few who have sought to utilize exclusively the specific musical resources of period pianos, evoking the sensitivity and delicate nuances of an earlier "Clavier" culture and convincingly projecting them to his listeners. The emphasis of Richard's artistic work today lies in the solo piano works of Haydn, Mozart, C.P.E. Bach and their contemporaries, and as a collaborative fortepianist in Lied-recitals and chamber music, the latter with his own ensemble "The Donaustädter Mozart Players".
Numerous concert, radio, television film and above all CD productions of the music of the Viennese Classical period and the north German "Empfindsamkeit" (the Bach family, E.W. Wolf, F.W. Rust) document Richard Fuller's comprehensive artistic vision; among his many musical interests are also the music of Ignaz Pleyel, J.B. Vanhal and Hyacinthe Jadin, resulting in world premiere recordings of Pleyel's keyboard works, the piano quartets Op 40 of Vanhal and the complete sonatas of Jadin.
