Anna Petrova

"Grand emotion ... a rich temperament and an outstanding technical ability"
Scherzo Magazine, Spain

Praised for her “artistic, clear and enlightened” performances (BBC Magazine) that showcase “refined virtuosity and underlying passion” (Ritmo Magazine), Bulgarian pianist Anna Petrova embraces a multifaceted career as a soloist, chamber musician, educator, and artistic director. She has been the recipient of top honors and awards at international piano competition, including the Queen Elisabeth and Jose Roca Competitions, leading her to perform in renowned venues such as Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and the National Center for the Performing Arts in Beijing. An avid chamber musician, Petrova is a member of two award-winning ensembles: the Carr-Petrova Duo, and Iris Trio. Alongside her performing career, she shares her passion for music education as the Assistant Professor of Piano at the University of Louisville.

Petrova’s latest project is serving as the Co-artistic director of ATX Chamber Music and Jazz: an organization curating extraordinary musical and social experiences, while also offering educational opportunities to the local community.

“The heart is an ancestral metaphor: throughout human history, it has been thought of as a thing of paramount value, representing both literally and figuratively the core of a person; their essence. Slavic Heart is one of the most personal projects I have brought into this world. It is autobiographical and represents my journey both as a musician and person. “ – Anna Petrova

"The recording is superb, a marvelous showcase for Petrova’s splendid pianism and artistry."
