Oana Kariotoglou Popescu
I am currently a postgraduate researcher at the University of Leeds under the supervision of Doctors Edward Venn and Michael Spencer. I focus on George Enescu’s piano output, with special interests in the analysis of form, early twentieth-century style and piano writing, and the interdependence between music analysis and performance. I graduated with a Masters degree in Music Performance/Piano and a Masters degree in Music Pedagogy/Piano from the Zurich University of the Arts, and with a Bachelors degree in Music Performance/Piano from the National University of Music, Bucharest. I pursue parallel careers as a pianist and piano teacher in Switzerland. My recital programs are built on works with roots in Balkan and Carpathian basin.
