Angela Lear brief curriculum vitae:

updated on April 17th, 2006
      Following her London Bishopsgate Hall debut recital at the age of twelve Angela Lear began her concert career. After winning numerous competitions and prizes she studied at the Royal Academy of Music with Professor Guy Jonson (Senior Piano Professor and former pupil of Cortot and Rachmaninov). As the result of Angela Lear winning a Gold Medal for her performance of Ravel’s ‘Miroirs’ she had a period of study with Nadia Boulanger.
      From 1972-76 Angela Lear worked with Louis Kentner, who introduced her to the importance of researching into Chopin’s autograph manuscripts and original sources due to the discrepancies contained in various edited publications. Angela Lear has undertaken extensive research studies into Chopin’s manuscripts and related sources and continue to be her life-long devotion.
      Angela Lear and her CD series, ‘The Original Chopin’, has received critical acclaim. The double-CD albums, Vols. IV, V & VI, include a gratis CD presented as a spoken commentary with illustrations and detailed discussion on Chopin interpretation.
      Angela Lear has toured the U.K. and abroad extensively giving recitals and is also in demand for her lecture-recitals on Chopin. She has performed at major concert venues worldwide, including recitals for international Chopin Societies and the Polish Embassy in London, and has had the privilege to be invited by the Chopin Society of Warsaw to give Chopin Recitals at the Castle Ostrogski and the composer's birthplace at Zelazowa Wola
