Internationally recognized cellist and composer Tanya Anisimova is a unique artist whose performances encompass standard repertoire, original compositions and arrangements, and live improvisations with her own vocal accompaniment.
Anisimova is equally at ease whether improvising live with New Age legend Paul Horn or performing her own "Seasons” with a symphony orchestra. 

A graduate of Yale University School of Music, Boston University School for the Fine Arts, Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory and Moscow Central Music School, First Prize Winner at Concertino Prague International Competition and the All-USSR String Quartet Competition, and top prize winner at Min-On International Competition in Tokyo and First Shostakovich Competition, Tanya Anisimova is enjoying a multifaceted career of a soloist, composer, educator, and recording artist.

Having appeared on the most prestigious stages of the world, such as Carnegie Hall in New York City, The National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., Beethoven Hall in Bonn, Suntory Hall in Tokyo, Smetana Hall in Prague, and St. James Piccadilly in London, Anisimova is a sought after musician known for her inventive and unorthodox programming and charismatic interpretations, especially of the music by J.S. Bach.

International recognition came to Anisimova in 2001 with the 2-CD release of her cello arrangements of the J.S. Bach’ Six Sonatas and Partitas for Unaccompanied Violin. Upon listening to this recording distinguished Janos Starker described Anisimova as "an Everest climber, a high-class cellist with a powerful and inventive musical mind.” 

Tanya Anisimova is an award-winning composer with a constantly growing catalog of works. In 2012, the saxophone arrangement of her original work Caravan was named the favorite composition at World Saxophone Congress in United Kingdom. Her music has been described by The Washington Post as "melodious, subtly mystical and deeply emotional” and is being performed internationally by leading ensembles and soloists.

Anisimova is an active educator. She has presented lectures on the music of J.S. Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, as well as that of Shostakovich and Prokofiev. Additionally, she regularly gives lectures-demonstrations on the art of improvisation.

Tanya’s cello teachers are Zoia Kamysheva, Igor Gavrysh, George Neikrug, Miklós Perényi, and Aldo Parisot. She finds continuous inspiration in the music of J.S. Bach and in the sayings of Hazrat Inayat Khan.
