Usman Anees started taking piano lessons at the age of 8 from his father. Three years later he was able to sight-read well and prepare concert work independently. He practices 5-6 hours each day and has a repertoire of over 200 classical works ranging from Baroque to Modernism. Usman has also written a dozen compositions, including 3 piano sonatas and a piano concerto. His piano and violin composition, “Lonely Reflections”, recently premiered at NAPA, performed by Usman in collaboration with American violinist, William Harvey.
Currently, Usman is experimenting with music composition and is incorporating eastern raags into his work, whilst maintaining the Western technique of harmonies. He is also arranging popular film music into the pianistic idiom. Usman performs in Karachi and Lahore and has even performed at a concert in Berlin.
Passionate about visual arts since he was a child, Usman has taught himself how to paint and sculpt by studying the works of the grand masters. He is currently working on a series of paintings.
