Couperin, François (1668-1733), Pièces de clavecin: selection
Shostakovich, Dmitri (1906-1975), Twenty-Four Preludes and Fugues for piano, Op.87
Annett Busse, Piano
Inspired by the great pianists of the "Golden Age", Annett has a great affinity for Russian music. Her recording of rare Shostakovich preludes has been hailed as a scholarly realisation of the composer's wishes.

Busse was born in the East German town of Chemnitz - known then as Karl-Marx-Stadt. After an early musical education there, she was accepted into Dresden's Special School for Music in 1987. She later studied under Professor Winfried Apel at Dresden's University for Music. Annett was awarded a scholarship by the Studies foundation of the German people in 1993. During the late 1990’s Annett moved to England and studied with renowned pedagogue Peter Feuchtwanger. She lives between Hertfordshire where she has a flourishing teaching practice and the South of France. Annett has given recitals across Europe, a highlight being Liszt's first piano concerto in Berlin with the Berolina Sound Orchestra. She performs regularly at City of London Churches.
