“Hanna Bachmann plays with great musicality, creativity and technical skill. Her delicate sound and her interpretation speak of a mature personality at the piano,” Kirill Petrenko, chief musical director of the Bavarian State Opera, writes about the young pianist. With her Debut CD, Bachmann is introducing the listener four great works for piano, including both finales of Schumann's Sonata No. 2! Ms. Bachmann (born in 1993) received her first piano lessons at the age of six. When she was twelve, she started attending Ferenc Bognar‘s class at the Vorarlberg State Conservatory in Feldkirch and then moved to Florian Krumpöck in Vienna. Since 2011, she has been working with Pavel Gililov at the Mozarteum Salzburg. There, she completed her Bachelor degree with distinction in 2015. She received further artistically valuable inspiration from Elisabeth Leonskaja, Elisso Virsaladze, Barbara Moser, Arbo Valdma, Ya-Fei Chuang and Daejin Kim, amongst others. Hanna Bachmann has won prizes in both national and international piano competitions, most recently the first prize at the 'International Bachelor Piano Award 2015' in Düsseldorf.
