On Wednesday, December 9th, the Norwegian pianist, Anne Kaasa, will give a matinée with music by Haydn and Beethoven and, in the evening, Anne will play compositions by Haydn, Beethoven, Chopin. 

The Norwegian pianist Anne Kaasa, living in Lisbon, has been described by the French musical magazine Le Monde de la Musique as “ a pianist that stands out in the crowded world of soloists by the depth of her interpretations, the fluidity of her playing, as well as the precision and the delicacy of her touch”. 

Her activity as a soloist has brought her to play at prestigious venues like Wigmore Hall (London), Gulbenkian Foundation (Lisbon),  Auditorio Nacional (Madrid),  Ateneu Roman (Bucarest) and Scheremetev Palace (St. Petersburg) among others and in many International Music Festivals.

On Thursday, December 10th, Anne will be joined by cellist Maria José Falcão. In the morning they will play compositions by Brahms and Chopin and in the evening music by Beethoven, Brahms and Chopin.

Maria José Falcão has performed in numerous concerts in Portugal and abroad, and appeared in many Festivals, including in the Festivals of Algarve, Sintra Macau and Funchal. She collaborates regularly with the Portuguese Radio for classical music, Antena 2 and has recorded the Cello Concerto of Fernando Lopes-Graça with the National Symphony Orchestra of Budapest.
