Anna Magdalena Kokits
Austrian pianist Anna Magdalena Kokits is known for her fresh approach to classical concerts: in her innovative programs she presents famous repertoire and contemporary pieces as well as music that has unjustly sunk into oblivion, such as the works of Jewish composers who were forced into exile.
Her performances are captivating excursions through different styles of music and diverse cultures, interwoven with stories and anecdotes.
During the European Music Festival she will perform on Nov 22 in Hanoi and Nov 24 in Ho Chi Minh. Her visit also includes a public master class in Ho Chi Minh.
Anna Magdalena Kokits has performed as a soloist and chamber musician at major concert venues in many European countries, in Asia, Africa, North America and the Middle East. Her CD recording of solo piano works by Jewish composer Ernst Toch (1887-1964) was released on the Capriccio label in June 2017 to enthusiastic critical and public acclaim.
