Ana Clemente Sánchez


Brief CV

A professional musician with an extensive career, Ana has successfully combined her artistic and scientific facets in a mutually enriching way. She holds a 2-year M.A. in Solo performance (Aufbaustudiengang Konzertexamen) at the Robert Schumann Hochschule Düsseldorf (Germany), an M.Phil. in Art History at the University of La Laguna, and an M.Sci. in Human Evolution and Cognition at the University of the Balearic Islands (Spain). International bassoon soloist and conductor, she has worked with top figures such as Claudio Abbado, Martha Argerich, and Berliner Philharmonic Wind Quintet, and recorded for BBC Proms, EMI, Generalli, and RTVE, among others. Ana has taught at several music colleges for more than a decade, also becoming Head of Department and member of the Advisory Board and the International Relations Bureau. She won various musical prizes (e.g., MAMC Award 2000, Young Performers Competition Price 2003, Youth in Concert), graduate scholarships, and fellowships from the most prestigious institutions (e.g., Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung; Fundación Caja Madrid; Ibermusica Foundation; Ministerio de Educación, Cultura y Deporte; AIE). Her natural inquisitiveness and love for knowledge have led her to combine her expertise and a very active artistic praxis with her artistic-scientific passion, captured in the topic of her current Ph.D. research, Aesthetic Sensitivity, for which she has been awarded a La Caixa Foundation Fellowship.
