001tanyaThe Washington Post has described cellist Tanya Anisimova as a "highly focused artist" graced with "spiritual authority" and "an easy mastery of her instrument" and her original music as "melodious, mystical, and deeply emotional."

International recognition came to Anisimova upon the CD release of her cello arrangements of J.S. Bachʼs Complete Violin Sonatas and Partitas.

Anisimova has since built a successful career in performing, composing and recording.

Recent highlights include sold-out recitals at Carnegie Hall in New York, International Port Fairy Festival in Australia, a video performance of Bachʼs Chaconne, as well as performances of Shostakovich Concerto No. 1 in New Orleans and Tchaikovskyʼs Rococo Variations in Virginia Beach, Stage8 TV and "The Red Door Series" in Connecticut.

In 2007, Anisimovaʼs Caravan for two cellos was premiered by Paul Katz and the composer. The saxophone arrangement of the piece was selected as the favorite work at the 2012 World Saxophone Congress in UK. Currently, Caravan is being performed worldwide in both cello and saxophone versions.

Ms. Anisimova is a graduate of Yale University, Boston University, Moscow Conservatory, and Moscow Central Music School. She won First Prize at Concertino Prague International Competition, All-U.S.S.R. String Quartet Competition, and she is a top prize winner at Min-On International Competition in Tokyo and First Shostakovich International Competition in St.Petersburg.
