Sheila Arnold belongs to the generation of pianists for whom the language of the fortepianos has
had a decisive influence on their self-image as musicians.
Outstanding successes at international competitions such as the Mozart Competition in Salzburg or the Concours Clara Haskil as well as numerous scholarships and awards such as the Mozart Prize of the Mozart Society Wiesbaden in 1995 contributed significantly to her international concert activity as a soloist in recitals and with renowned orchestras and conductors as well as a chamber music partner. She played in big European concert Halls and at festivals such as in Schleswig-Holstein, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Rheingau, Spannungen Heimbach, Hambach, Echternach, Sangat, Ravinia and others.
Her CDs have been awarded prizes such as the Choc of Classica Magazine or inclusion in the longlist of the German Record Prize. She is also co-editor of the new edition of Ludwig van Beethoven‘s piano pieces published by Wiener Urtext 2020. Sheila Arnold is a professor at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln.
