Anne Page is known in the UK and abroad as a musician who combines virtuosity and versatility. Born and educated in Perth, Australia, she moved to Europe to continue advanced studies with Marie-Claire Alain, Peter Hurford and Jacques van Oortmerssen. She made her London debut playing 20th century repertoire at the Royal Festival Hall. Her career encompasses performances and broadcasts in Europe, the USA and Australia. In the pioneering spirit of her country of origin she likes to explore some of the less well trodden musical paths and has been one of a handful of musicians at the forefront of the revival of the harmonium, making critically-acclaimed recordings and establishing a course on the instrument at the Royal Academy of Music. In 2008 she was featured in a Purcell Room recital for solo harmonium and the Swiss organist and composer Lionel Rogg has written a suite of pieces for harmonium for her.
Based in the university city of Cambridge, she directed the Cambridge Summer Recitals for eight years, presenting many world and UK first performances and bringing major recitalists from Europe to Britain. During 2011/12 she performed the complete organ works of Bach in 23 recitals on 14 different organs in Cambridge. The series attracted capacity audiences and helped to support the educational work of the Cambridge Academy of Organ Studies of which Anne is a founder.
In November 2017 her performance of The Art of Fugue by Bach at the Royal Festival Hall in London received critical acclaim in the national press:
‘Her handling of timbre and colour allowed us to savour, more than we usually do, the constituent voices in the counterpoint; each piece was vividly characterised, with much emphasis on the pervasive French influence.’ Independent
‘Page rose marvelously to her immense challenge.’ The Sunday Times
