Biography

Hanna Bachmann plays with great musicality, creativity and technical skill. Her delicate sound and her interpretation are a testament to a mature personality at the piano’

– Kirill Petrenko, general music director of the Bavarian State Opera

Firmly establishing herself as an international recitalist, Hanna travels extensively, not only in her home country of Austria, but also to Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovakia, the Principality of Liechtenstein and Switzerland.

After celebrating a much acclaimed debut at the ‛Beethoven Fest Bonn’ Festival in 2015, Hanna was asked to return for a performance at the ‛Beethoven House’ Bonn last year. Following her appearance at the opening ceremony of the ‛Beethoven@home’ Festival in 2016, she was subsequently invited to give six recitals at ‛Burg Adendorf’ in May this year.

Hanna’s frequent guest performances in Vienna, such as the opening soirée of the ‛Young Pianists Worldwide’ International Piano Festival in 2014, or her solo and chamber music recitals at the ‛Blüthner Concert Series Vienna’ where she made her 5th appearance in April 2017, are always received with great enthusiasm by the audience. The young artist’s keen passion for chamber music and Lied-accompaniment saw her perform four times as part of the well-established ‛Kultursommer Semmering’ Summer Festival this year.

This November she is going to give a recital at the Beethoven-Campus at Bonn’s ‛Beethoven House’, as well as to perform in the ‘Ambassadors in Concert’-gala in ‘Musikverein Wien’. Furthermore, she is looking forward to making her solo recital debut in London in 2018.

Hanna’s debut CD with works by Janacek, Beethoven, Ullmann and Schumann was released in November 2016 by the German label TYXart. 

In addition to claiming numerous top prizes at both national and international piano competitions, such as first prize at the ‛International Bachelor Piano Award 2015’ in Düsseldorf, Hanna is also a proud recipient of the ‛Richard-Wagner Scholarship’. 

Born in 1993, Hanna received her first piano lessons at the age of six. In 2005 she started attending Ferenc Bognar‘s class at the Vorarlberg State Conservatory in Feldkirch and later changed to Florian Krumpöck in Vienna. From 2011 to 2017 she worked with Pavel Gililov at the Mozarteum Salzburg, where she completed both her Bachelor and Masters degree with distinction. Hanna has also received further artistic guidance from distinguished artists such as Elisabeth Leonskaja, Elisso Virsaladze, Barbara Moser, Arbo Valdma, Ya-Fei Chuang and Daejin Kim, amongst others.
