From an early age, Anna Fedorova, one of the world’s premier young pianists, demonstrated an innate musical maturity and astounding 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. Born in 1990, the Ukrainian piano virtuoso has already appeared over twenty times at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and has played at concert halls all over the world, including the Carnegie Hall, Cadogan Hall and Tonhalle in Zurich. After winning numerous awards in Russia, America and Europe, her career has already taken her across the world to perform with some of the most famous conductors and orchestras.
She has won 14 international piano competitions, including first prize at the international Rubinstein In Memoriam Piano Competition in Poland, and has developed a formidable repertoire to match her extraordinary technique. All acknowledge her talent and her musical maturity which is way beyond her years. Her amazing musical talent is shown in her live performance of Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto on Youtube which has attracted over two and a half million listeners.
Here in Biggar we are looking forward with great anticipation to presenting the Meadows Chamber Orchestra with pianist, Raymond Yiu, with a performance of this Rachmaninov Concerto.
Anna’s programme includes some of the most virtuosic piano music by Scriabin, the much loved Appassionata Piano Sonata by Beethoven, and two Romantic Fantasies by Chopin and Schumann.
Devoted to music from the age of 5, her career took on a crescendo of maturity, as she performs solo and with orchestra in the world’s most important concert halls, generating rave reviews from critics and audiences as well as earning several brilliant successes at international competitions.
L’Adige, Italy, 2012
..The first night was dominated by a truly great piano talent, the Ukrainian Anna Fedorova, who stunned the audience with instances of sweet expression alternating with passionate cascades of sound as she performed Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Scarlatti and Ravel. The listener was genuinely amazed upon witnessing a seemingly shy girl dramatically transform into a passionate pianist and display virtuoso skill far beyond what is expected of her young age...
