Purcell Pianist Wins Franz Liszt Competition

Our heartfelt congratulations to Year 11 pianist Anna who triumphed in the recent 6th International Franz Liszt Competition for Young Pianists in Weimar, Germany.

Anna not only won 1st Prize in Category II but was also awarded the rarely given Grand Prix in recognition of outstanding achievement throughout the competition. She also received the Liszt Prize, the Classical Sonata Prize, the EMCY Prize and the Junior Jury Award!

This highly prestigious competition is triannual, and hugely demanding in terms of repertoire. Anna was the youngest finalist at 15 years of age, and her success is a testament to skill, determination and immaculate preparation. Anna studies at Purcell under Tessa Nicholson who supported her throughout the competition, and joined her in Weimar.
