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, despite being in her early twenties, has already had great achievements. She has received several prestigious awards, and has recently 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
