Anne Kaasa plays São Lourenço Cultural Centre

Accomplished Norwegian pianist Anne Kaasa returns to São Lourenço Cultural Centre, Almancil, this month to perform two concerts.

Featured music on Wednesday, February 22, will include works by Grieg, Debussy and Ravel.

On Saturday, February 25, Anne Kaasa will play pieces by Debussy, de Falla, Fragoso and Albéniz.

Playing a variety of classical and contemporary, Anne has gained critical acclaim for her recordings of works by Grieg, Ravel and Taccuchian.

Currently teaching at the Lisbon Conservatory, where she also studied, she has performed as a soloist at prestigious venues such as Wigmore Hall in London, Lisbon’s Grande Auditório da Fundação Gulbenkian, the Auditorio Nacional Madrid and Bergen’s Troldhaugen.

The pianist has previously performed with other highly talented musicians such as Norwegian violinist Arve Tellefsen, flutist Katherine Rawdon and Portuguese clarinettist António Saiote within the classical genre and recorded for television and radio in France, Spain, Slovenia, Italy, Norway and Portugal.

In 2011, Anne released a new CD recording of works by Debussy in Paris, which received excellent reviews in the French musical press and on Radio France.

Amigos of the São Lourenço Cultural Centre were introduced to two highly talented new pianists by Anne. Ana Beatriz Ferreira is now partly sponsored by the Amigos in her studies at the Royal School of Music in London and another previous sponsorship, Joana Ballman, just recently graduated from the Cologne Conservatory with a BA in music.
