Stefanie - Anastasija Richter
Austria, Vienna Vienna Piano
The pianist Stefanie-Anastasija Richter captivates the audience with transparent sound and a clear understanding of the musical idea. Her sensible playing and flexibility have made her an appreciated chamber musician and accompanist. Since the young age of 5 years, the Russian born German – Austrian pianist has successfully attended competitions in Austria and abroad and has played in famous concert halls such as the Gläserner Sall of Wiener Musikverein, the Concert Hall of Prague Conservatory and Slovakian Philharmony as well as the Larnaca Municipal Theatre in Cyprus. In 2018 she has won 1st prize at the "Danubia Talents Competition" in Vienna. During corona times she received a 2nd prize at the "Young Artists of 21st Century Competition" in Moscow and a 3rd price at the Iscart chamber music competition with her ensemble. In 2021 she participated and played concerts in two masterclasses and festivals: Kaunas Piano Fest (Lithuania) and Festival de Bergerac (France). For her engagement in charity concerts in Vienna, Stefanie-Anastasija received the„Young Ambassador of Peace“ award by Archduchess Herta Margarete and Archduke Sandor Habsburg-Lothringen of Austria. At the moment Stefanie-Anastasija is studying piano with special focus on chamber music at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna with professor A.Kouyoumdjian. Her interest in harmonious playing and musical exchange with other artists has resulted in multiple projects and recordings. One of these recordings was dedicated to the revival of music by - almost forgotten - Austrian composer Wilhelm Grosz. In the present, the artist is preparing a wide range of compositions for her solo and chamber music activities. The focus lies on exploring rarely played pieces and composers starting in the Renaissance period until modern times and to present not new – but rediscovered – music to the public.
