Schaghajegh Nosrati was born in Bochum in 1989. She has become known as an extremely versatile musician. That she could establish herself as a concert pianist in early years is due to her excellent reputation as an interpreter of Bach‘s music. Her international breakthrough came in 2014 as an award winner at the International Bach Competition Leipzig and particularly through her increasing musical collaboration with Sir András Schiff.
Schaghajegh Nosrati was admitted to the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media as a young student, completed her master’s degree under Christopher Oakden in 2015 and her artist diploma under Ewa Kupiec in 2017. Robert Levin, Murray Perahia and Daniel Barenboim gave her further artistic inspiration.
She performed at international music festivals such as the Schumannfest Düsseldorf, the Menuhin Festival Gstaad and the Luzern Festival. Further performances followed at the Philharmonie Berlin, Pierre Boulez Saal Berlin, Alte Oper Frankfurt, the NDR Kleine Sendesaal Hannover, Gewandhaus Leipzig, Deutsche Oper am Rhein, Anneliese Brost Musikforum Bochum, the Beethovenhaus Bonn, Tonhalle Zurich and 92nd Street Y New York with the Central German Chamber Orchestra, the German Chamber Orchestra Berlin and the Bochum Symphony Orchestra, among others.
