Hailed by The New York Times as a pianist of “a fiery sensibility and warm touch,” ANNA SHELEST is an international award-winning artist who has thrilled audiences throughout the world!  She made her orchestral debut at the age of twelve with the Kharkiv Symphony Orchestra and has subsequently appeared as soloist with many distinguished orchestras, among them the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra and Estonian National Symphony Orchestra. In recital, she has been heard in New York City’s Stern Auditorium and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ Alice Tully Hall, Washington DC’s John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Mexico City’s Palacio de Bellas Artes, and Austria’s Wiener Konzerthaus.

            With her husband, pianist Dmitri Shelest, Anna has recorded Ukrainian Rhapsody, an album exploring the rich repertoire for solo and four hands piano by composers of their homeland.  This CD was broadcast on radio stations throughout the United States, many of which selected it as their Album of the Week. The same wide-spread media enthusiasm greeted her 2019 solo album, Donna Voce, comprised of scores by women composers drawn from the last three centuries. She records exclusively with Sorel Classics, which has issued six CDs to date.

            A champion of esoteric repertoire, Anna Shelest is currently collaborating with legendary conductor Neeme Järvi on a project to record the complete works for piano and orchestra by Anton Rubinstein. The initial CD of the set features the Concerto #4 and Caprice Russe and was released in 2018 to wide critical acclaim. Early in 2019, Ms. Shelest’s latest album in this series was released: Rubinstein’s Concertos #3 and #5 with the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra.

            A native of Ukraine, Anna Shelest received her early music education at the Kharkiv Special Music School. She received her Masters Degree from the Juilliard School in New York City, where she studied with Jerome Lowenthal. Anna makes her home in New York City with her husband and two sons.
