Anna Keiserman

After Anna Keiserman’s debut at Weill Recital Hall, New York Concert Review described her as “an impressive pianist who played brilliantly.” Ms. Keiserman demonstrates rich artistic potential, technical fluency, musical awareness and freedom on stage in all her concerts and projects. Her current interests include exploration of Russian music through her concert tours as a chamber musician and a soloist. The chamber music project, Russia XX: works by Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Shchedrin, Rachmaninoff, was presented at Hamline University, Saint Paul, Minnesota, the University of Wisconsin, River Falls, Wisconsin, and the Strand Theatre, Hudson Falls, New York. In August 2018, Keiserman released her solo debut CD Russian Mosaic (with music label Sheva Collection) that included works of Rachmaninoff, Shchedrin, Medtner and Smirnov,

Residing in New York, Ms. Keiserman completed her doctorate of Musical Arts at the Mason Gross School of Arts at Rutgers University. She also holds degrees from the Gnessian Russian Academy of Music, Moscow, Russia; and the University of Minnesota. Her teachers include Vladimir Tropp, Georgy Fedorenko, Eteri Andjaparidze and Vladimir Valjarevich. Ms. Keiserman is a prizewinner of several international competitions including the first place at the International Piano Competition for Young Musicians (Volgograd, Russia), second prize at the International Piano Competition (Saratov, Russia), and the Concerto Competition at the University of Minnesota. In 2017 she received the Culture and Art award from the New Russia Cultural Center, Rensselaer, New York for her dedication to promoting arts and culture in the community.

Ms. Keiserman is as committed to education as to performance. She has served as an adjunct faculty member at New York University Steinhardt School of the Arts, and currently works as a coaching faculty member at William Paterson University. As a teacher, she encourages her students to love music while establishing clear and attainable goals, helping them to develop their own strengths while achieving a balance between technical and musical skills.
