Anne Page

BMus, Hon ARAM

Organ - Harmonium

Runs a specialist course on harmonium for Academy organists

Anne is known in the UK and abroad as a musician who combines virtuosity with versatility. Born and educated in Perth, Australia, she moved to Europe to continue advanced studies successively with Marie-Claire Alain, Peter Hurford and Jacques van Oortmerssen. Based in Cambridge, she directed the Cambridge Summer Recitals for eight years, presenting many world and UK first performances and bringing several major recitalists from Europe to Britain for the first time. She made her London debut playing 20th century repertoire at the Royal Festival Hall.

She took a leading role in the Historic Organ Sound Archive, and is a founder and trustee of the Cambridge Academy of Organ Studies. During 2011-2012 she performed the complete organ works of Bach in Cambridge.

The revival of the harmonium as a mainstream instrument has become her particular speciality: she has made recordings which have brought the instrument to a wider public and directs an annual course for the Royal Academy of Music - the first in modern times in this country.
