About The Artist

Lauded by The Washington Post for playing “with intelligence, poetry and proportion,” pianist Tanya Bannister has triumphed  at the Concert Artists Guild International Competition and the New Orleans International Piano Competition, confirming her status among the leading pianists of her generation. Receiving further distinction as an “Artist to Watch” on the cover of the January 2007 issue of Symphony magazine, Bannister has already appeared on many of the world’s great concert and recital halls.

“Bannister is an expressive pianist who plays with feeling and emotional involvement. Her technical skills are equally impressive, and she had ample opportunity to display both during her well-chosen program, which ranged from Bach to Prokofiev.”
