Anjulie Chen (piano)
Born in Munich in 2000, Anjulie Chen started playing the piano at the age of three – in the beginning coached by her mother Yumiko Yamamoto but very soon by Prof. Martina Bauer. However, she didn’t only follow her passion for the piano but dedicated most of her time to professional ballet training at the Heinz-Bosl Stiftung in Munich.
Due to an injury in 2016, she stopped taking intense ballet classes and started devoting her time primarily to her piano studies. In October of the same year, she became a Junior Academy Member at the Leopold-Mozart Zentrum in Augsburg with Prof. Christine Olbrich as well as at the University for Music and Performing Arts in Munich with Prof. Thomas Bockheler where she progressed to becoming a full-time piano student in 2017. Two years later, Anjulie won third prize at the International Piano Competition Lagny-sur-Marne and was soon after that awarded with the DAAD scholarship which allowed her to continue her music education at the Royal Academy of Music as a student of Prof. Colin Stone.
Alongside her studies, Anjulie Chen gives concerts both nationally and internationally, and will appear in the Beethoven Festival at the Bunka-Kaikan Concert Hall in Tokyo in January 2022. She has received extensive tuition from eminent artists such as Dina Yoffe, Thomas Ades, Pascal Devoyon, Herbert Schuch, Yevgeny Sudbin, Pascal Roge, Kirill Gerstin and Prof. Klaus Schilde.
Anjulie will play music from Bach, Chopin, Ravel and Schubert
