Humour in music is the theme of this album by the 25-year-old pianist Hanna Bachmann from Austria, whose plans include debuts in the Berlin Philharmonic and concerts in the UK and US, and whom the conductor Kirill Petrenko attested “great musicality, creativity, high technical ability, fine sound and a matured personality”. The spectrum of variety of this programme spans from the childlike cheerfulness of Mozart (Variations on “A Woman is the Most Delightful Thing”, K613) to the profound wit and deliberate irony of Beethoven (Diabelli Variations, op.120) to the pungent laughter of Prokofiev (Sarcasms, op.17).

Already an active performer, Hanna Bachmann (b. 1993) plays regularly in her native Austria as well as Germany, Hungary, Croatia, Italy, Great Britain, Slovakia, Holland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland. Her numerous performances at the Beethoven Festival hosted at the Beethoven-Haus Bonn, as well as Beethoven@home and at the Beethoven Campus, are special highlights. Additional performances have taken her to the Vienna Musikverein and the Schubertiade Vorarlberg.

In 2018 she gave a successful North American debut in Mexico, where she performed as soloist with the Orquesta Sinfónica de San Luis Potosí conducted by José Miramontes Zapata. There, she was also invited to conduct a masterclass at the department of music of the renowned Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México.
