Nils Franke biography

Nils Franke held scholarships and awards at several music colleges and universities, including the Royal Academy of Music (London). He studied piano, amongst others, with Sulamita Aronovsky and Vovka Ashkenazy. In 2005 Franke became the course director of the MA in Instrumental Teaching at the University of Reading and in April 2013 took up the position of Head of Studies at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). His commercial recordings include music by Rachmaninov and Bortkiewicz for Warner and Brilliant Classics, and his work in piano pedagogy led to an involvement in professional development programmes for piano teachers. Franke’s work as a pianist and researcher in historical piano pedagogy has led to a number of publications, including CD releases, editions of sheet music and the Urtext Primo Series from Wiener Urtext Edition.
