About Isata Kanneh-Mason

The oldest of the seven performing Kanneh-Mason siblings, Isata Kanneh-Mason has garnered both critical and commercial success. Her career has developed somewhat more slowly than those of some of her younger brothers and sisters, but it grew strongly in the early 2020s with major prizes, including the Opus Klassik Award in Germany for Best Young Artist in 2020 and, the following year, the Leonard Bernstein Award. Kanneh-Mason has released two critically acclaimed and commercially successful albums on the Decca label, 2019's Romance: The Piano Music of Clara Schumann, which entered British classical charts at No. 1, and Summertime, featuring works by Gershwin and other American composers, in 2021. Kanneh-Mason often plays duets with her younger brother Sheku, and she has performed chamber music with a variety of other artists.
