ANASTASIA

Precious musical pieces stand the test of time for many years, sometimes even for many centuries, and infatuate people’s hearts over and over again. This demonstrates anew how important music is for our lives. Young Russian-Austrian pianist Anastasia Huppmann shares her passion for music with the audience and enchants the listeners with her brilliant interpretations of world-renowned music of Chopin, Beethoven, Liszt, Rachmaninov and other great masters of music history.

Great passion for music, that you can feel with every note

From the french philosopher Denis Diderot: “Only big and great passions, can elevate the own soul to very great things.” Anyone who has ever visited one of Anastasia Huppmann's concerts knows that the Russian-Austrian concert pianist has completly succeeded in this. Discovered as a child prodigy, she has since devoted herself completely to classical music.

what THE WORLD SAYS

The well thought-out and perfectly implemented sophistication of every single touch, with which Anastasia draws the colours of the music, is unparalleled among the famous pianists of our century. It is one thing to hear this, but it is another to experience it.

Indeed, it can be said that Anastasia is one of the most impressive pianists of our time. Her way of performing with passion and inner sacrifice can be compared with the work of great composers.
Russian press, translated

With great attention to detail, Anastasia demonstrates entirely new possibilities in terms of tempo and sound, which prove that a talented musician who not only has heart but also taste and a sense of style can create something breathtaking.
German press, translated

  With Anastasia's final touch, you could literally feel how the audience held their breath and could not escape the spell of this emotional mood. An extremely emotional experience. 
Italian press, translated

If you had to sum up her performance in one sentence, concise, subtle, moving, challenging and sensual are all attributes that come to mind when Anastasia plays.
Paul Badura-Skoda, Austrian pianist, translated

Everyday life is completely forgotten as soon as the first touches sound. Anastasia's playing pulls one increasingly deeper into the spell of the works she performs. You literally sink into the depths of the performed pieces, immerse yourself in other worlds and only realize after the final chord that you could unconsciously escape everyday life.
US press

Note by note, motif by motif, and phrase by phrase. Anastasia Huppmann literally paints an absolute masterpiece every time with her performance on a fictional easel. It combines precision with passion, speed with faithfulness, and elemental force with intoxicating sensuality.
