Jeneba Kanneh-Mason Signs Exclusively to Sony Classical, First Album Releasing 2025

Sony Classical has signed British pianist, Jeneba Kanneh-Mason, who records her first recital album this year for release next spring.

The 22-year-old’s debut album for the label will feature works by Frédéric Chopin, Claude Debussy and Alexander Scriabin alongside underrepresented composers Margaret Bonds, Florence Price, and William Grant Still. A finalist in the 2018 BBC Young Musician competition and a recent Classic FM Rising Star, Jeneba completes her studies at the Royal College of Music this summer, where she holds the Victoria Robey Scholarship.

I am so happy and honoured to join the prestigious roster of artists at Sony Classical,” Jeneba said. “I can’t remember a time when classical music wasn’t an integral part of my life and I am a huge advocate for its positive influences and ability to really connect with such a wide range of people. The piano repertoire is enormous and I’m excited to be able to explore it, discovering the old, the new, and to perform pieces by more women, as well as Black and minority ethnic composers.

Per Hauber, President, Sony Classical International, said: “I am delighted to welcome Jeneba Kanneh-Mason to Sony Classical. We can’t wait to shape the next steps of Jeneba’s career together with her as her exclusive recording partner.

Dr Alexander Buhr, SVP A&R, Sony Classical International, said: “Jeneba’s musical prowess is simply electrifying. With curiosity and a vibrant spirit, she brings her very own fresh perspective to every piece she plays. We are absolutely thrilled to have Jeneba join the Sony Classical family, bringing her infectious energy to our joint musical journey!
