Anna Korsun (Donetsk, 1986) studied composition and music theory Kiev and continued her studies with Moritz Eggert at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Munich. In addition to her work as a composer she performs contemporary music as a vocalist, pianist, organist and conductor. Her compositions have won many prizes, including the Gaudeamus Muziekprijs (2014) and the Kunstpreis Berlin (2018). She co-organised the concert series Evening of Low Music (Munich), 6+1 (new vocal music, Moscow and Kiev) and Ereignishorizont (organ music, Cologne). Her work has been performed at events and festivals such as the Warschauer Herbst, the Darmstädter Ferienkurse, the Musikfest der MGNM and Musica Viva in Lisbon.
Anna has caused a stir with her versatile and rapidly growing oeuvre, which ranges from music for orchestra and various chamber music settings, vocal music and music for theatre to works for piano, organ, percussion, tape and sampler. Her writing for voices and instruments is unconventional, always searching for new sounds and stories.
