Annegret Kuttner

Pianist Annegret Kuttner impresses the audience with  the naturalness of her interpretation and the lightness  and clarity of her playing.  After successfully participating in the Robert Schumann  Piano Competition in Zwickau, Annegret has performed  already at the age of 16 as a soloist in concerts in  Germany and other European countries, including with  the European Union Youth Orchestra.  She completed her studies at the Dresden Academy  of Music with Professor Peter Rösel, and received further  musical impetus from masterclasses with Karl-Heinz Kämmerling, Pavel Gililov and Amadeus Webersinke. Annegret augmented her musical training with post- graduate studies on piano accompaniment (as a répétiteur) with Professor Monika Raithel as well as studying harpsichord with the renowned expert on early music, Professor Ludger Remy.
