Notably, she has performed numerous times at the Beethoven House Bonn, at Bonn’s ‘Beethovenfest’ as well as the city’s ‘Beethoven@home’ festival and at the ‘Beethoven-Campus’. Hanna Bachmann’s frequent solo and chamber music recitals at the ‘Blüthner Concert Series Vienna’ and the well-established summer festival ‘Kultursommer.Semmering’ have been received with great enthusiasm by the audience. Furthermore, she performed as soloist with the orchestra Sinfonietta Vorarlberg under the baton of Tibor Bényi, in the Berlin Philharmonie and at the Bodenseefestival during the season 18/19.

In addition, concerts frequently lead her outside Europe: She gave her successful Americas-debut in Mexico in 2018, that included performances with the Orquesta Sinfónica de San Luis Potosí under the baton of José Miramontes Zapata and giving a masterclass at the music faculty of the renowned Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM).

Her second album Plaisanteries is dedicated to the topic humour and was published in November 2018 by the Austrian label Gramola.

This rising musician was accepted as a student of Ferenc Bognar’s class at the Vorarlberg State Conservatory in Feldkirch at the age of twelve, before moving to Florian Krumpöck in Vienna.
