Tanya Anisimova

At noon, on Saturday, 21st of November, we gathered in La Sala Ninos Cantores of Conservatorio de las Rosas to be present at one of the most anticipated concerts of the festival. It was offered by cellist Tanya Anisimova and pianist Alexander Pashkov. Both are Russian, but have left their country. The concert has fulfilled the expectations of warmth, beauty, emotionality, and masterful interpretations. It is indeed impossible to select my most favorite from the Sonata for Cello and Piano No.1, by Brahms, The Gypsy Airs, by Pablo de Sarasate, in Tanya's own transcription, or Abendlied (The Evening Song) by Schumann, which was offered as an encore. Tanya decided not to do an improvisation, which are stunning.
