More About Tanya Anisimova:
After Anisimova’ solo recital at Port Fairy Festival in Australia, Eleonora Sivan wrote the following: “What she [Anisimova] does is on the verge of the impossible: such a masterful combination of instinct, uncompromising spirit, and intellect. Only few artists could accomplish that.”

Described by The Washington Post as a “thoughtful and powerful,” artist “graced with spiritual authority,” this Russian-born American cellist, composer, improviser, educator enjoys multifaceted career, which has taken her across the globe. Currently, Anisimova is preparing for her tour of United Kingdom.

Tanya Anisimova is as much at ease performing her own cello concerto with a symphony orchestra as she is improvising in concert with legendary New Age musician Paul Horn. Her performances encompass standard repertoire, original compositions and arrangements, and otherworldly improvisations with her own vocalizing. Tanya’s impassioned and highly virtuosic cello playing has inspired composers, including Pulitzer Prize winner composer David Del Tredici and Yale School of Music’s Dean Ezra Laderman, to write pieces for especially for her.

Herself a composer, Anisimova has over twenty works to her credit. Her original music was described by The Washington Post as “melodious, mystical, and deeply emotional”, and by Moscow Conservatory Press – as a “life changing experience.” A saxophone arrangement of Tanya’ Caravan was selected as the best work at the World Saxophone Congress in the United Kingdom in 2012. Her recent work Farela has been receiving standing ovations ever since its premiere performance in 2015.

Recent highlights include solo appearances with Russian Chamber Orchestra, McLean Symphony, Loyola Orchestra in New Orleans, and a launch of the new “Sundays Live At The Studio” globally broadcast series conceived and realized by Anisimova and The Blue House Productions’ founder and director Jeff Gruber.

Extensively educated in her field, Ms. Anisimova holds graduate degrees from Moscow Conservatory, Boston University, and Yale. She is an active pedagogue and lecturer, and has presented numerous lectures/demonstrations on the music of J. S. Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven at Portal de la Universidad Nacional Autónoma México (U.N.A.M.) at the University of Mexico and El Conservatorio De Las Rosas in Morelia, as well as master classes in cello, improvisation, and chamber music at Moscow Conservatory, Moscow Central Music School, Icelandic Academy of Fine Arts, Hart School of Music, George Washington University, Loyola University, Virginia Commonwealth University, Loomis Chaffee Arts Academy, Longy School, and Wintergreen Festival Summer Academy.

As a performer, Pablo Casals, Glenn Gould, George Neikrug, Jordi Savall, and Paco de Lucia have greatly influenced Anisimova. Other influential figures in her life are Sri Ramakrisna, Paramahansa Yogananda, Sri Swami Satchitananda, and Alexander Anufriev.
