Born in Vienna, Manfred Wagner-Artzt was admitted to study at the former „Academy of Music and performing Art“ in Vienna in the class of Richard Hauser at the age of 13. Four years later he continued his education with the renowned pianist Alexander Jenner and obtained his concert pianist diploma in 1974. Only a few months later he gained a second diploma, by finishing his studies of chamber music. He is renowned as a soloist, a chamber musician and a Lied-accompanist, promoted by Erik Werba.
