Her program includes two sets of Bach’s Little Preludes and Luigi Dallapiccola’s Quaderno Musicale di Annalibera, a set of eleven short dodecaphonic pieces, as well as works by Chopin, Schubert, Liszt, and Wagner.

Raised in Sacramento and based in the UK, pianist Anyssa Neumann has been praised for the “clarity, charm, and equipoise” of her performances, which span solo and collaborative repertoire from the Baroque to the 21st century. Recent highlights include recitals in Rome, Paris, London, Montreal, Ottawa, Denver, and throughout the Pacific Northwest, and lecture-recitals in Madrid, Helsingborg, Toronto, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Her solo debut album of works by Bach, Beethoven, Messiaen, and Prokofiev was featured on David Dubal’s radio program The Piano Matters in New York and Chicago, and a new solo disc of works by Bach, Bach-Busoni, and Dallapiccola is scheduled for release later this year. A graduate of the Manhattan School of Music and Oxford University, she pursued advanced performance studies with Fabio Bidini in Berlin and with Paul Stewart at Université de Montréal and holds a PhD in musicology from King’s College London.
