CELLO Described by The Washington Post as an artist graced with “spiritual authority” and “easy mastery of her instrument,” Tanya Anisimova enjoys a multifaceted career as a concert performer, composer, and a recording artist. An innovator by nature, Anisimova is as much at ease performing her own concerto with a symphony orchestra as she is improvising with the New Age legend Paul Horn. Anisimova’s playing has inspired Pulitzer Prize winner David Del Tredici and the Dean of Yale School Of Music Ezra Laderman to write works specifically for her. Other noted composers who have written for Tanya include Francis Thompson McKay, Judith Shatin, Gary Powell Nash. Recent highlights include а recorded video performance of “Delphi” – a piece composed for Tanya by the recipient of Wammie (Washington D.C. area version of a Grammy) Jessica Krash, as well as the performance of the Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations with Symphonicity Orchestra at Sandler Center For The Performing Arts in Virginia Beach. Currently, Anisimova is getting ready to perform Shostakovich’s First Cello Concerto in New Orleans with Haitian-American conductor Jean Montes, as well as tour New England with Bona Fide Duo.
