Anna Fedorova is one of the world’s premier young pianists. From an early age, she demonstrated an innate musical maturity and outstanding technical abilities. Her international concert career took off while she was only a child, and audiences around the world were stunned by the depth and power of her musical expression. Critics have praised Anna’s signature “sweet modesty and wild expression,” which rendered listeners “completely taken by surprise, compelled and astonished.” In September 2013 Anna performed Rachmaninoff 2nd Piano Concerto at the opening of the season of Sunday Morning Concerts series at the Great hall of the Royal Concertgebouw. Within two and a half a years, the recording of this concert received over 9 million views on YouTube and was highly praised among renown musicians. In November 2015 she returned to perform in the big hall of Concertgebouw in Sunday Morning Concerts series Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No 3, this performance was again steamed live on TV, internet and radio.
