Schaghajegh Nosrati, born in Bochum in 1989, is an extremely versatile musician and was able to establish herself as a concert pianist early on thanks to her outstanding reputation as a Bach interpreter. Her international breakthrough came with her success as a prizewinner at the 2014 Leipzig Bach Competition, but above all through her increasing musical collaboration with Sir András Schiff, who praised the "astonishing clarity, purity and maturity" of her Bach playing and her associated understanding of music.


In recent years, the pianist has performed at many renowned venues, including the Essen Philharmonie (as part of the Ruhr Piano Festival, standing in for Daniel Barenboim), at the Palais des Beaux Arts Brussels (Bozar), the Lucerne Festival, the Tonhalle Zurich, the Vancouver Playhouse, the Kennedy Center Washington, Palau de la Música Catalana Barcelona, the Berlin Philharmonie, Wigmore Hall London and Carnegie Hall in New York. In the 2022/23 season, Schaghajegh Nosrati was "Artist in Residence" at the Beethovenhaus Bonn and soloist with the Beethovenorchester Bonn. 


The pianist accepted invitations from the Bochum Symphony Orchestra to perform at the Anneliese Brost Forum. At the Bach Montréal Festival, she performed with the festival orchestra under the direction of Reinhard Goebel, and she also made her highly successful debut with the Bremen Philharmonic Orchestra with Mozart's Piano Concerto K. 467 at the Bremen Glocke. 


She made her debut at the Pierre Boulez Saal Berlin in 2019, standing in for Radu Lupu, who was ill at the time. She was invited back in 2022, this time to perform "Das Wohltemperierte Clavier, Book 1" by J.S. Bach, which Schaghajegh Nosrati had recorded the previous year in the same hall and as part of a CD production (CAvI Music).


Another highlight of the pianist's career to date was her 2018 tour with Sir András Schiff and the Cappella Andrea Barca, performing J.S. Bach's concertos for two pianos at venues including the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Musikverein Vienna, Tonhalle Düsseldorf and KKL Lucerne.


In 2017, Schaghajegh Nosrati went on tour to China for the first time, where she gave acclaimed debuts in Beijing, Shanghai and other major cities in the country.


The pianist has released 6 CDs. Her discography includes works for solo piano and concertos with orchestra by J.S. Bach, Charles Valentin Alkan and Anton Rubinstein. Her CD with J.S. Bach "Das Wohltemperierte Clavier, Book 1", released in 2022, was awarded the German Record Critics' Award in quarter 4/2022.


In addition to her solo activities, Schaghajegh Nosrati is an enthusiastic chamber musician, not only in the field of classical music but also in world music. In 2022, she founded the Joolaee Trio together with Misagh Joolaee and Sebastian Flaig (line-up: kamancheh, piano and percussion) and has performed in this formation at the Rudolstadt Festival, the Raderberg Concerts in Cologne, the Bremen Sendesaal, the Schleswig Holstein Music Festival and the Heidelberger Frühling, among others.


In parallel to her concert career, Schaghajegh Nosrati became involved in teaching at an early stage. Between 2015 and 2019, she worked as a lecturer at the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media. Since 2020, she holds a position as assistant to Sir András Schiff at the Barenboim-Said Academy in Berlin.
