Anastasia Seifetdinova, Piano


After her Carnegie Hall debut in 2006, the New York Concert Review wrote: "For a critic, hearing a new pianist with a truly warm, luscious tone is like breathing in the scent of jasmine blooming - a pleasure to be recalled again and again - and so I'm happy to report that from the first note she touched at her Weill Hall recital, Anastasia Seifetdinova was a genuine pleasure to listen to. Every piece, every measure, every note - no matter how complex the texture, no matter how many strands of melody and accompaniment - was wrapped in a halo of golden tone..."

Born in Kiev, Ukraine, Anastasia began her musical studies first at the Kiev Lysenko Special Music School for gifted children where she finished with honors, and later at the Tchaikovsky National Music Academy. In 2000, Anastasia immigrated with her family to Germany and continued her studies at the Hochschule für Musik Würzburg. In February 2004, she graduated with honors and continued her studies in the Meisterklasse Program.

In 2001 Ms. Seifetdinova was the winner of the Rachmaninoff Concerto Competition and was awarded First Prize at the Competition of the Musical Academy in Würzburg. She received First Prize in the 2003 International Piano Competition for Young Pianists in Rome, Italy and was awarded a Special Prize. In 2006, the young pianist won the Puigcerda International Piano Competition in Spain.

Anastasia's recent engagements included a performance at the Bolshoi Hall of Moscow Conservatory, and solo appearances with orchestras in the United States and Germany performing concerti by Prokofieff, Mozart, Grieg, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, and Stravinsky.   Ms. Seifetdinova received the "Outstanding Award" which granted her a return engagement to Carnegie Hall on April 27, 2008.  For Naxos Records, she recorded the complete works for piano and orchestra of Balakirev with the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra.

Anastasia is currently pursuing a Doctoral Degree at The Hartt School of Music of the University of Hartford. Ms. Seifetdinova is a member of Performance 20/20, an honors chamber music program that offers its participants full-tuition scholarships and an intense chamber music experience. She is a recipient of many other scholarships in both Germany and the United States.
