Isata Kanneh-Mason

Next event:
  • Sold out
​Evening concert of nocturnes with a British pianist.

The critically acclaimed pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason released her debut album Romance in 2019, which landed her a first place on the UK Classical charts. The debut celebrates her inspiration Clara Schumann's 200-year anniversary; Gramophone Magazine cited the release as 'one of the most charming and engaging debuts'.

With a background from The Royal Academy of Music, Kanneh-Mason, despite being in her early twenties, has already had great achievements. She has received several prestigious awards, and this season includes performances at New York's Carnegie Hall and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. The Kanneh-Masons – the pianist along with six younger siblings, all trained in classical music – appeared on Britain's Got Talent in 2015.

Isata Kanneh-Mason will give two recitals in Grieg's villa, playing nocturnes by Schumann, Chopin and Grieg, and sonatas by Schumann and Beethoven. This is her first appearance in Norway.
