In June 2013, she won Silver (2nd Prize) and the Audience Award at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, having already attracted international attention in 2011 when she won 1st Prize and all special prizes at the Montreal International Competition.
Ms. Rana is invited to concert series and festivals throughout the world, including Zurich’s Tonhalle, Vienna’s Musikverein, Paris’ Theatre des Champs Elysées, London’s Wigmore Hall, Washington’s Kennedy Center, the Verbier Festival and Klavier Festival Ruhr.
