Marie-Ange Nguci

Past events:

​A rising star among pianists.

Albanian-born pianist Marie-Ange Nguci's career is taking off like a comet: in recent years she has performed with some of the world's leading orchestras. She first attracted major public attention with her 2018 album En Miroir, in which she played piano works by composers best known as organists and improvisers.

She has also had an extensive whirlwind academic career: after entering the Paris Conservatoire at the age of 13, she took her master's degree in performance in three years instead of the usual five. She continued with further studies at master's level, and at the age of eighteen in 2016 she was accepted for doctoral studies at City University in New York. Marie-Ange, who speaks seven languages, has also studied conducting, organ, cello and the quirky electronic instrument Ondes Martenot.

Her broad range of interests allows her to compile original concert programmes. Her repertoire ranges from baroque through classical and romantic to contemporary music. In Troldsalen, her first Nordic concert, she opens with Bach's iconic Chaconne, considered 'the violinist's Himalaya', arranged for piano by the Italian composer Ferruccio Busoni.
