Anne Lovett

Anne was born in Normandie, France. She began piano lessons at the age of three. She then went on to study at the Conservatoire Superieur de Paris with Pierre Reach (a pupil of the great Artur Rubinstein) and Alberto Neuman (a rare student of Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli). At the age of just eleven, she was invited to perform in concert at the Festival International d’Annecy, and a year later at the Festival International de Montdauphin. Anne then moved to the UK to further her education at the Royal Academy of Music in London with Hamish Milne. She also studied composition with Ruth Byrchmore, chamber music with Michael Dussek, and jazz with Dominic Alldis. She then undertook a Masters in Composition at Kings College, London. During her academic years, Anne took part in many masterclasses, including those run by Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Roger Muraro, Miriam Solovieff, Andrei Diev, John O’Connor and Rolf Hind.

Since graduating, Anne has performed throughout Europe, in countries including Portugal, Norway, Italy, England, and France, as well as in Brazil. She has represented France and the UK in official engagements in both concerts and masterclasses. She has been broadcast on ITV, the German station ZDF, the radio station France Musique (Radio France group), French national TV network, France 3, and the European network, Mezzo.

Anne leads collaborative work with artists from various avenues, from acting to dance companies. This includes an instrumental project with producer and programmer, James Sanger, well known for his million selling work with Dido, Keane, U2 and The Cure.

Anne’s deeply personal debut album Beyond (and Below) which comprises her own piano works was recently released to rave reviews on Discovery Records. She has just recorded a new album engineered by multi-award winner, Mike Hatch (Grammys, BAFTAS and Gramophone Awards), which will include the first commercial release of Carl Vine’s ‘Piano Sonata’. She has also just recorded the sonatas by Franck, Faure and Poulenc for the label Champs Hill Records with Grammy Award producer Raphael Mouterde and violinist Giovanni Guzzo due to be released in January.
