Isata Kanneh-Mason

Foundations
Music
Next event:
 ​Norwegian debut from 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 has already had many great achievements, despite being in her mid twenties. She has received several prestigious awards, and been booked for performances at New York's Carnegie Hall and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. The Kanneh-Masons – the pianist along with her six younger siblings, all trained in classical music – appeared on Britain's Got Talent in 2015. In 2020 the siblings released the album Carnival of the Animals.

Isata Kanneh-Mason will give two recitals in Grieg's villa. These concerts during the Bergen International Festival will be her first in Norway.
