Aglika Angelova was four and took her first
piano lesson in her native Varna, Bulgaria, she couldn't
have known that one day she was going to settle in
San Francisco. However, she knew from very early on
that being a musician was her fate. She went through
the same pains and bliss all gifted kids go through
until, in 1997, she received her Bachelor and Master
of Music degrees from the Hamburg Academy of Music
in Germany. "Like all imaginative people, Aglika needs
the kick of risk and facing the seemingly impossible,"
wrote her teacher, the eminent pianist and pedagogue
Volker Banfield. "Yet, in the end, she develops a
healthy sense of realism. One of her greatest assets
is that she is in no way conceited, always listens
to advice, and, even if she only follows it in part,
considers it in seriousness."
After 19 years of going to school, winning competitions, and playing recitals and concerts, Aglika moved to San Francisco in August 1997 to set herself free from the authority of the European tradition. Not coincidentally, here she ran upon the famous pianist and violist Paul Hersh, who introduced her to the local professional community and to the ways classical music is cherished and performed in America. Aglika fell in love with the city. She began teaching at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and giving private piano lessons to students of all age; in this way she discovered her vocation as a music teacher.
Aglika quickly became a sought-after soloist and chamber music performer in the Bay area. Her commitment to the music led her to co-found JUPITER TRIO, first-prize winner of the 4th Osaka Piano Trio International Competition in 2002. In addition to her dazzling performances, Aglika writes prose, adores food and cooking, and brings a charming assertiveness to her multiple wonderful friendships.
