Now a regular performer in major cities worldwide, Tsybuleva’s early experiences were more modest. Born in 1990, she was raised in Nizhny Arkhyz—a small village of approximately 500 inhabitants—in the Karachay-Cherkess Republic of Russia, where nature and the beauty of her surroundings proved a constant source of inspiration. These beginnings have served to feed directly into the development of her unique performance style today, which is one of captivating intimacy: drawing the listener into a private sphere of music-making in even the largest of concert halls.
Recent performance highlights have included performances with the Basel Symphony, Mariinsky Orchestra, National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Singapore Symphony Orchestra, St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra. Alongside this, Tsybuleva has given recitals at such prestigious venues as Het Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Shanghai Oriental Arts Center, Tonhalle Zürich, and the Wigmore Hall, London.
Tsybuleva took her first piano lessons with her mother at the age of 6, before attending the Shostakovich Music School in Volgodonsk aged 9. From age 13, she continued her studies at the Moscow Central Music School and the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatoire, under internationally renowned pedagogue Professor Lyudmila Roschina. During this time, Tsybuleva garnered her first major competition wins—including the Grand Prix of the International Gilels Piano Competition (2013), and top prizes from the Hamamatsu International Piano Competition (2012) and Takamatsu International Piano Competition (2014).
After graduating from the Moscow Conservatoire in 2014 with the coveted award for ‘Best Student’, Tsybuleva furthered her studies with Claudio Martínez-Mehner at the Hochschule für Musik Basel. During these two years, she developed her growing passion for Romantic repertoire of the German School, and won the Leeds International Piano Competition in 2015 with her captivating performance of Brahms Piano Concerto No 2, under the baton of Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé Orchestra. Tsybuleva has since combined her international performance career with a thirst for further knowledge, and has just completed postgraduate studies at the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatoire.
Tsybuleva’s debut recital recording (Fantasien, released on Champs Hill, 2017) comprised piano fantasies by C P E Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, and Brahms. It garnered universal praise in the media for its imaginative and carefully crafted programme, with reviews including:
The playing of this magnetic young Russian artist is thoughtful, elegant, and exciting … I have long admired Sviatoslav Richter’s take, but this new recording is even more satisfying for its broader approach (Fanfare)
With her 'energetic elan, bravura, and heart-on-sleeve communication' (International Piano Magazine), Anna Tsybuleva is fast emerging as one of the finest pianists of her generation, 'destined to become a world piano star' (APE Musicale, Italy).
Anna Tsybuleva is a proud member of the ‘Yamaha Artist’ family, and thanks Yamaha for their kindness and support.
