The pianist Ananda Sukarlan is known for his collaboration with Spain’s most important contemporary composers in premières of their works in Spain and internationally. He has recorded the complete piano works of David del Puerto, Santiago Lanchares and Toru Takemitsu, as well as being a dedicatee of new works by Per Nørgaard, Peter Sculthorpe, John McLeod and more than fifty other prominent composers. Ananda Sukarlan is also certainly Indonesia’s most prominent composer, with numerous international commissions and performances. His collaboration with the renowned Indonesian choreographer Chendra Panatan has given birth to many works for ballet, performed both in Europe and Indonesia. His first opera, based on the script by Seno Gumira Ajidarma, Mengapa Kau Culik Anak Kami? (Why did you kidnap our son?), based on a true story during the Suharto dictatorship, had its première in 2008 in Jakarta. His compositions include works for orchestra, chamber music and solo instruments, but it is his vocal compositions, art-songs, choral works and theatre works, that have consolidated his high reputation as a composer. A National Piano Competition, the Ananda Sukarlan Award, has been established in Indonesia to help the career of young pianists.
