Angela Gassenhuber

Angela Gassenhuber took her first piano lessons at the age of four. Only two years later she had already won first prize in the nationwide “Jugend musiziert” competition. In 1985 she began her piano studies with Klaus Schilde at the Munich Music Academy. The Study Foundation of the German People enabled her to attend a two-year post-graduate program at the Royal College of Music in Manchester, following the conclusion of which she was awarded the Peter Frankl Prize. In 1988 she won the encouragement prize from the Carl Maria von Weber Competition, and one year later, she was granted a scholarship from the German Music Council Competition. She completed master classes, among others, with Franco Gulli/Enrica Cavallo and Brigitte Fassbaender/Helmut Deutsch at the Schleswig-Holstein Festival. Since 1995, Angela Gassenhuber has been a instructor of piano accompaniment at the “Hanns Eisler” Academy in Berlin. She assists in master classes and is official accompanist at international competitions. She has been able to display her extensive repertoire and musicality at a great number of concert appearances at home and abroad both as soloist and chamber music partner.
