Anna Serova, viola
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 a theatre.
After studying with Vladimir Stopicev at the Conservatory of St Petersburg, with Bruno Giuranna at the Acacdemy of Cremona and with Juri Bashmet at the Acacdemy of Chigiana in Sienna, she began a brilliant career as a concert musician which saw her starring in some of the most important concert seasons and festivals in Italy and abroad.
Her CDs released by DECCA, NAXOS, BRILLIANT CLASSICS, VELUT LUNA, RED DRESS and RECANTUS CLASSICS have been praised by critics and earned awards and recognitions, such as “5 stars award” by “Musica” and “Amadeus” Magazines, ICMA Nominee, and Pizzicato Supersonic Award.
Anna Serova is happy to offer her art for charity: she has recorded two CDs dedicated to the project “End Polio Now” by Rotary International playing the precious Amati Viola 1615 “La Stauffer” owned by Fondazione Stauffer in Cremona.
In March 2016 Anna Serova has been awarded by STANDOUT WOMAN AWARD 2016.
From 2017 she is a testimonial of the Association CCVI in Multiple Sclerosis.
Anna Serova is Professor of Viola at the “E.R.DUNI” CONSERVATORY (Matera, Italy) and Professor of Viola and Chamber Music at the Perosi Academy (Biella, Italy) and also frequently holds viola and chamber music masterclasses in Italy, Russia and South America.
