About Anna Fedorova

Anna Fedorova's playing is "unfailingly sensitive, poetic and tasteful, the phrases flexibly shaped even when the technical going gets tough (...) she never forces her tone and never loses her cool” Gramophone Magazine.


From an early age, the Ukrainian-born pianist Anna Fedorova showed an innate musical maturity and amazing technical abilities. Her live recording of Rachmaninoff’s 2nd Piano Concerto has more than 30 million views on YouTube and is highly acclaimed by critics and world-renowned musicians. She regularly performs at the world’s most prestigious concert halls such as the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, New York's Carnegie Hall, Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, Tonhalle Zürich, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Bunka Kaikan in Tokyo, and many others.


As a soloist, Anna Fedorova has performed with the Philharmonia Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic, Tokyo Symphony, Yomiuri Orchestra, Russian National Orchestra, Utah Symphony, Dallas Symphony, Hong Kong Philharmonic, the Netherlands Philharmonic, and more. Called the ‘house pianist’ (Telegraaf) of the Concertgebouw, Anna Fedorova has performed there more than 30 times as well as in numerous online and television broadcasts. She is a regular guest at leading music festivals such as the Verbier and Menuhin Festivals in Switzerland, Stift Music Festival in the Netherlands, Festival de Sintra in Portugal, Ravinia Festival in the USA.

On 6 March 2022 she was one of the first to initiate a charity concert to raise money for the victims of the war in Ukraine, together with her musician friends, Interartists Amsterdam and the Concertgebouw. Having raised one hundred thousand euros on that first night, she has continued to perform in more than 20 charity concerts since then. During the summer of 2022, she was the solo pianist with the Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra, playing across Europe and the US. The New York Times noted that “The pianist Anna Fedorova was a sensitive, poetic soloist in Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2, a nod to the Polish support for the Freedom Orchestra project.”

In 2018, Anna Fedorova signed with Channel Classics Records for a series of recordings. By the end of 2022, she will have released three solo piano albums, four chamber music albums, and all of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concertos with the Sinfonieorchester St. Gallen. BBC Music Magazine gave a 5+5 star-review for the first album with Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 1, Preludes, and Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, and also a 5+4 star-review for Rachmaninoff Symphonies Nos. 2 & 4, noting that the clear thinking and feeling behind these Rachmaninoff concerto interpretations are refreshing indeed: this certainly isn't just yet another 'Rach 2'. It was Classic FM’s Album of the Weekend, received Luister Magazine’s 10 star review, and Album of the Week on Scala Radio as it was released in October 2022. She will record Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3 with the same orchestra and conductor in November 2022, completing their Rachmaninoff Piano Concertos cycle in 2023; the 150th birthday year of the composer.


Anna Fedorova graduated from the Lysenko School of Music in Kyiv with Borys Fedorov and the Accademia Pianistica in Imola, Italy, with Leonid Margarius. She received her Master’s degree and Artist Diploma at the Royal College of Music, London, under the guidance of Norma Fisher. Her mentors include Alfred Brendel, Menahem Pressler, Steven Isserlis, and András Schiff.
