Beatrice Rana

Beatrice Rana (1993) astounded the music world at a young age with her profound and nuanced approach to such works as Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 and Bach’s Goldberg Variations. In 2018 she made her debut in Amsterdam in the Master Pianists series as well as with the Concertgebouworkest, which turned her into a household name in no time. The orchestra is very happy to see her return for Tchaikovsky’s populair Piano Concerto No. 1.
