A Rach-only program showcasing the ability of the Russian genius to deal with both the large and the small form: from the prelude, a form which he mastered to the point of  becoming a reference in the repertoire, to the elegy, to the sonata. A composer by many shun as marginal to the history of music, Rachmaninoff’s voice is more and more relevant these days as his tunes and harmonies speak passionately to many people around the world.

Described by Gramophone Magazine as embodying “superb pianism and intelligent musicianship”, Anna Tsybuleva shot into the international spotlight in 2015 when she was crowned First Prize Winner of the Leeds International Piano Competition.  She received wide critical acclaim for her winning performance, and was described as “A pianist of rare gifts: not since Murray Perahia’s triumph in 1972 has Leeds had a winner of this musical poise and calibre” (International Piano Magazine).

Recent and forthcoming highlights include major international recital debuts at Het Concertgebouw Amsterdam (2020) KKL Luzerne (2022), Paris’ Salle Cortot (2022), and the Shanghai Oriental Arts Center (2022).  In concerto, the 2021/2022 season sees Tsybuleva make debuts with National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia/Vladimir Spivakov, Orquesta Extremdura/Andrés Salado, the Sichuan Orchestra of China/Darrell Ang, Sinfonieorchester Wuppertal/Risto Joost, and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra/John Nelson.  In a major season highlight, Tsybuleva embarks on the debut recording of a newly commissioned piano concerto, at Abbey Road Studios with the London Symphony Orchestra/Marin Alsop.
