Organised by Altus Arts & Culture, APF is welcoming Dutch pianist Saskia Lankhoorn at Ankara Piano Festival on March 27th, 2018.
The versatile Dutch pianist Saskia Lankhoorn is an active soloist and chamber musician in the contemporary music scene. Her dedication to performing contemporary music dates from early age; 1995 marked her first appearance on national radio, playing Arnold Schönberg’s Sechs Kleine Klavierstücke. Her critically acclaimed solo concerts combine new art music with a strong performance and sound concept, and strive to immerse the audience in a new sound world.
In spring 2014 she presented the solo program ‘Chords & Cables’, exploring the external sound possibilities of the instrument through combining the piano with electronic and prepared sounds. Saskia performs throughout the Netherlands in venues such as the Concertgebouw and Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ in Amsterdam, as well as Symphony Space NY in the USA. October 2014 marked the release of ‘Dances & Canons,’ Saskia Lankhoorn’s first solo CD on ECM Records, featuring a suite of solo piano works by Kate Moore. In 2014-2015 Saskia embarks on an international CD release tour of ‘Dances & Canons,’ performing a solo show featuring a striking light and sound design at a.o. Pukt, Norway; Sacrum Provanum, Poland; Apples & Olives, Switserland; Look and Listen, New York. Dances&Canons was nominated for the Edison Award 2015
