A unique figure on the international scene both as soloist and chamber musician, the violist Anna Serova has several compositions dedicated to her in recent years by some of the most important contemporary composers.
In fact, by writing for her they have created a new genre in composition uniting the form of the concert piece with the action of an opera. She has performed as a soloist with orchestras such as Moscow State Symphony, Siberian Symphony, Karelia Symphony, Krasnoyarsk Chamber Orchestra, Arkhangelsk State Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra del Teatro Olimpico, Belgrade Philharmonic, Orchestra da Camera del Teatro Amazonas, Amazonas Philharmonica, Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma, Orchestra dell'Arena di Verona, Croation Radio Television Orchestra etc... The warm, shining beauty of her sound makes her very much in demand as a chamber musician and she has collaborated with artists like Ivry Gitils, Bruno Giuranna, Salvatore Accardo, Rocco Filippini, Filippo Faes, Toby Hoffman, Rainer Honeck, Remus Azoitei…. Her CDs released by DECCA, NAXOS, BRILLIANT CLASSICS, VELUT LUNA, and RED DRESS have been praised by critics and earned awards and recognitions, such as “5 stars award” by “Musica” Magazine, ICMA Nominee, and Pizzicato Supersonic Award. In June 2006 the Administration of the City of Krasnoyarsk conferred on Anna Serova the title of Attaché for Cultural and Trade Relations.
Anna Serova is Professor of Viola and Chamber Music at the Biella “L.Perosi” International Academy and also frequently holds viola and chamber music masterclasses.
