We are pleased to be able to welcome to Ripon the young Russian pianist Anna Tsybuleva the winner of the 2015 Leeds International Piano Competition.
Anna was born in 1990 and began piano studies at age six. Her first piano teacher was her mother, Svetlana Tsybuleva. From 2000 to 2003 Anna was a pupil in the Shostakovich Music School in Volgodonsk (Russia). From 2003 to 2014 she studied under Professor Ludmila Roschina, firstly at the Moscow Central Music School and since 2009 at Moscow State Conservatory from where she won the prize as "The best graduating student of 2014". Until summer 2016 she was a student at Basel Music Academy in the piano class of Professor Claudio Martinez Mehner. She is currently a postgraduate student at the Moscow Conservatory.
Besides performing many solo piano recitals, Anna has also performed with a number of important Russian orchestras, and in 2012 she played in Japan with the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra under Inoue Michiyoshi.
She won first prize in the 2012 Emil Gilels International Piano Competition at Odessa, Ukraine, and in the same year was one of the winners of the Hamamatsu Piano competition in Japan.
Her success at the Leeds competition has led to many important engagements in the UK and internationally, including with the Mariinsky Orchestra in St Petersburg and with the St Petersburg Philharmonic and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestras. She has given recitals in Paris, Zurich, Brussels, at the Ruhr Piano Festival and at Luxembourg. She also appeared at the Chipping Campden Festival in 2016, stepping in at short notice for Paul Lewis. Other future engagements include the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and Halle Orchestras, and various UK and international festivals.
In October 2016 Anna made her debut in Hong Kong at the Hong Kong Concert Hall. In January 2017 she made her debut at Wigmore Hall in London to huge public and critical success.
Future plans include the release of her first commercial CD on the Champs Hill label.
