SO THRILLED TO HAVE JUST RECEIVED THE BUMA CLASSICAL AWARD 2019! GIVEN TO THE COMPOSER IN THE NETHERLANDS WITH THE MOST PERFORMANCES WORLDWIDE IN THE PREVIOUS YEAR! THANK YOU TO ALL THE MUSICIANS AND PROGRAMMERS AND AUDIENCES WHO HAVE CHAMPIONED AND WELCOMED MY MUSIC INTO YOUR HALLS AND FESTIVALS AND HOMES! WHAT A TREMENDOUS HONOUR!


Vanessa Lann has been composing and playing the piano since the age of five.
She writes for all sorts of musical ensembles and enjoys collaborating
with artists of diverse disciplines. Her work, almost entirely written on commission,
is performed by the world's top musicians at the most prestigious international halls, festivals
and events, and receives enthusiastic reactions from audience, press and musicians.
