A unique figure on the international scene both as solist and chamber musician, the violist Anna Serova has several compositions dedicated to her by some of the most important contemporary
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.
There are some World Premiere Performances, such as “Tang-Jok(Her)”, “Giocasta” and “Fero dolore” by Azio Corghi ,“The Poem of Dawn” by the Israeli composer Boris Pigovat and more.
She has also performed the “Viola Tango Rock Concert” by the composer Benjamin Yusupov in Serbian, Mexican and Russian premieres.
After studying with Vladimir Stopicev at the Conservatory of St Petersburg, and later with Bruno Giuranna and Juri Bashmet, 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.
A few of her recordings have been praised by critics and have earned awards and recognition. 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 June 2006 the Administration of the City of Krasnoyarsk conferred on Anna Serova the title of Attachè for Cultural and Trade Relations. Thanks to her tireless work, shortly afterwards a protocol promoting the organisation of cultural, commercial and administrative exchanges between the vast Central Siberian region and Italy, was signed by Cremona and Krasnoyarsk.
