With her impressive debut album, the Russian pianist Anastasia Huppmann brings together works for piano solo by Frederic Chopin and Franz Liszt. Both composers, whose friendly relationship developed during their joint years living in Paris, were affected by the widespread awakening of nationalistic ideas at the time, which led them to use musical elements from their respective native countries, Poland and Hungary, as the basis for many of their works. The catchiness of the rhythms, melodies and harmonies, which had previously hardly existed in this form in the world of classical music brought about highly virtuoso cornerstones like the Hungarian Rhapsodies No. 2 and No. 11 or the popular Mephisto Waltz No. 1 S 514 by Franz Liszt. The polonaises, concert etudes and waltzes by Chopin as well count among the most well-known pieces for piano solo.
Anastasia Huppmann Born in Russia, Anastasia Huppmann discovered her love of music at a very early stage and started training as a pianist at the age of five. When she was six years old the school directors recognised her musical talent and made it possible for her (as the only child in the school) to receive instruction for specially gifted pupils in the areas of piano, composition and music theory. A year later Anastasia appeared live in television playing her own compositions. At the age of eight she won her first piano competition. She studied piano with Prof. V. Daich at the state conservatory in Rostov-on-Don and with Prof. Thomas Kreuzberger at the Konservatorium Wien Privatuniversität, completing both with a distinction. Anastasia Huppmann then continued her training at the Hochschule für Musik in Hannover in the solo classes of Prof. Karl-Heinz Kämmerling until his death. She deepened her knowledge in master classes by well-known pianists such as Paul Badura-Skoda, Vladimir Krainev, Lev Naumov, Dmitri Bashkirov, Aquiles Delle Vigne, Boris Petrushansky, Lev Shugom and others. Anastasia Huppmann has already celebrated major successes at numerous piano competitions. In 2005 she won the competition «21st Century Art» in Vorzel near Kiev (Ukraine), in 2009 the «Prof. Dichler Wettbewerb» of the Wiener Musikseminar, also in Vienna the «Blüthner Sonderpreis» in the framework of the «Erika Chary Sonderpreis» at the Internationaler Beethoven Klavierwettbewerb, and in the same year she also won prizes in Japan at the «Osaka International Piano Competition». Numerous solo appearances in Ukraine, Russia, Austria, France, Poland, Spain, Italy, and concerts with orchestras from a variety of countries have taken Anastasia Huppmann to the great concert halls of Europe and Asia.
