Pianist Chrysi Nanou combines a career as a performer, curator, lecturer and a devoted teacher of all ages. Born in Greece, Chrysi’s personal and professional aesthetics were formed in Paris and further shaped in the United States with her studies at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris / Alfred Cortot, The Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University, and at Stanford University’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA).
Her repertoire is particularly diverse, ranging from core classical music to twenty-first century and in a wide variety of genres with an emphasis on electro-acoustic contemporary music. Appearing as a concert pianist in over 30 countries, she has premiered many compositions by young and eminent composers. Chrysi has served as the Artistic Coordinator of CCRMA (Stanford University), is part of GoogleArts and sits on the board of the International Computer Music Association (ICMA).
