Anna Tsybuleva (piano)Described by Gramophone Magazine as embodying 'superb pianism and intelligent musicianship', Anna Tsybuleva shot into the international spotlight in 2015 when she was crowned First Prize Winner of the Leeds International Piano Competition. She received wide critical acclaim for her winning performance, and was described as 'A pianist of rare gifts: not since Murray Perahia’s triumph in 1972 has Leeds had a winner of this musical poise and calibre' (International Piano Magazine).
Now a regular performer in major cities worldwide, Tsybuleva’s early experiences were more modest. Born in 1990, she was raised in Nizhny Arkhyz – a small village of approximately 500 inhabitants – in the Karachay-Cherkess Republic of Russia, where nature and the beauty of her surroundings proved a constant source of inspiration. These beginnings have served to feed directly into the development of her unique performance style today, which is one of captivating intimacy: drawing the listener into a private sphere of music-making in even the largest of concert halls.
With her 'energetic elan, bravura, and heart-on-sleeve communication' (International Piano Magazine), Anna Tsybuleva is fast emerging as one of the finest pianists of her generation, 'destined to become a world piano star' (APE Musicale), Italy).
