 Anja German Piano

Anja German is from Slovenia but is now studying in Austria. She has already won several prestigious competitions, including the 2007 Manchester International Concerto Competition, part of her prize being the chance to make her debut recording. These popular works are performed exquisitely, and bear comparison with any previous recording, proving that Anja is likely to be a very prominent musician in the near future.

“Certainly a keyboard player to watch out for. Anja German’s unique musicianship comes across with all the sense of a newly improvised appreciation of genius. This is a CD which I wholeheartedly recommend. “

Denby Richards

Musical Opinion

“German delivers the goods in fine style on this solo extravaganza.  Played with the power of sounding like an entire orchestra by herself, German powers a delightful program that must be heard to be believed.  Simply an exquisite performance.”

Chris Spector

MidWest Record

“Part of 22-year old German’s prize for winning last year’s Manchester competition for young pianists is this disc and while she is a tad too cautious in the Haydn, the clarity of lines and colour in the Schubert and energy of the Chopin vindicate the judges.”

Philip Sommerich

Classical Music Magazine

"[Anja German’s] Schubert playing reveals (in the final movement) both youthful fire and poetry, and her Chopin playing is simply wonderful. There is passion and bravura a-plenty here, as well as tenderness and sweetness, and she brings the showpiece second scherzo to a thrilling conclusion that makes you want to stand up and cheer. A great debut recording."

Robert Beale 

Manchester Evening News

"Her Schubert sonata has many fine qualities: she is well inside the lyrical intensity of the wonderful Adagio... With the Haydn we are still in C minor, and she tackles this intelligently, too: there is nothing wrong with her Chopin either, as her forceful execution of the B flat minor Scherzo , fervent and sensitive by turns, amply demonstrates.” 

Piers Burton-Page

International Record Review

“She acquits herself well... a promising start to a career, and a release worth supporting.”
