The RMA is the brainchild of Romanian-born concert pianist, Anda Anastasescu.
Anda Anastasescu’s performances across the world have been consistently praised for their artistry, insight and imagination. An International Debussy Competition winner, she has performed extensively with orchestras in Europe, the USA and Asia, and toured with her own orchestra, London Schubert Players. Anda has given a number of first performances of works by Constantin Silvestri, Dinu Lipatti and George Enescu. She has pioneered music by British composers overseas and introduced for the first time in Romania the music of Sir Lennox Berkeley and Malcolm Williamson. She also initiated and was the artistic director of A Romanian Musical Adventure, the first London festival of Romanian composers, November 2005 – February 2006.
Anda is President of the Constantin Silvestri International Foundation and, under the patronage of the late Yehudi Menuhin, established in Romania, the Silvestri International Festival, Concerto Competition and Summer Academy.
She is a Commander of the Order of Cultural Merit in her native Romania.
