Jasmina Samssuli

Noted for her lyrical and passionate interpretations of everything from Bach to contemporary composers, Jasmina Samssuli has a rare ability to communicate the essence of music. She draws in her audience with a very intimate sound and compellingly open, spirited playing.

She studied the piano in Germany, first in Berlin and later in Hamburg at the Hochschule der Musik. In recognition of her exceptional talent, a German government scholarship took her to London to study with Maria Curcio and Joan Havill (Guildhall School of Music and Drama). She was also invited as a scholar to study at the Mozart Academy in Prague. She obtained her masters degree at the Royal Academy of Music in London where she studied with Joanna MacGregor.

Appearances at international music festivals (including Schwetzinger Musikfestspiele, IMS Prussia Cove and South East Asian music festivals) have led her to perform on concert platforms in Europe, Africa and Asia. Both as a soloist and a chamber musician, she has broadcast widely on German broadcasting stations e.g. SFB, NDR, SWR, and Radio France and ARTE.
