Raised in Sacramento, American pianist Anyssa Neumann has been praised for the “clarity, charm, and equipoise” of her performances, which span solo and collaborative repertoire from the Baroque to the 21st century. In December 2010, she released her solo debut album of works by Bach, Beethoven, Messiaen, and Prokofiev, which was then featured on David Dubal’s radio program "The Piano Matters" in New York and Chicago. Recent projects have included all-Bach recitals at The Banff Centre (Canada), the Sacramento Bach Festival (USA), and Blackheath Halls and St James Piccadilly (UK), a concert tour of England with American soprano Rena Harms, an exploration of American art song with English mezzo-soprano Katherine Nicholson, and duo recitals with Canadian violinist Yolanda Bruno at London's St-Martin-in-the-Fields and Toronto's Mazzoleni Hall. Anyssa has appeared as recital partner with Grammy Award-winning cellist Sara Sant’Ambrogio of the Eroica Trio, as guest pianist with the Sheba Ensemble, and on NPR’s "Performance Today" and Sirius Satellite Radio. She has additionally appeared in solo and chamber concerts at Queen’s Gate Terrace, the Holywell Music Room, Regent’s Hall, the Jacqueline du Pre Music Building, Norden Farm Arts Centre, Riverhouse Barn Arts Centre (UK), the Hudson Valley Piano Club (New York), the Huntington Arts Festival (New York), the Sevenars Festival (Massachusetts), and Salle Claude-Champagne (Montréal), among others. A graduate of the Manhattan School of Music and Oxford University, Anyssa continued advanced studies with Fabio Bidini in Berlin and Paul Stewart at Université de Montréal, and has participated in master classes with Thomas Adès and Rita Wagner at IMS Prussia Cove. In January 2017, she completed a PhD in musicology at King’s College London as a recipient of the King’s Overseas Research Studentship, focusing on pre-existing music in the films of Ingmar Bergman.

Upcoming concerts include appearances throughout California as well as in Canada, the UK, and France. anyssaneumann.com
