Ani Gogova Piano Recital: Russian Masterpieces @ PianoForte Studios

Ani Gogova’s “dazzling artistic presence”, “masterful poetic expression”, “ravishing colors”, and “virtuoso technique beyond reproach” have been captivating audiences around the world for almost two decades, most recently at Carnegie Hall, Chicago’s Harris Theater, Chicago Cultural Center, and the Embassy of Bulgaria in Washington. Some of her concerts have been selected as top recommendations by Time Out Chicago Magazine and the Chicago Tribune and broadcast on NPR, WBEZ, TEDx Talks, and WFMT Chicago. Following her debut with the State Orchestra of Mexico last season, this year she was a soloist with the Brevard Symphony Orchestra, was one of the four recitalists in the Philharmonic Society of Bellevile’s music series “Great Pianists of the World”, and was featured artist at the Zodiac Festival in France.  Her latest album titled “Fantasies, Fairytales, and Nightmares” was released on Blue Griffin Recording label gathering critical acclaim for her playing being “quite hypnotic”, “eliciting fine nuances”, “project[ing] a special magic “ and for its “incisive accuracy” “as if she were Martha Argerich on speed.” Gogova holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and has served as a professor at world-renowned Music Conservatory of Roosevelt University.
