About Anna



"A brilliant pianist who balanced her sound well and underlined the drama in the music... a dazzling toccata!"

The Washington Post

Anna Sleptsova was born in the town of Kovel in Western Ukraine, then part of the former Soviet Union.

Before coming to Australia in 1995, she was teaching at the Kiev State Conservatorium where she had earlier gained her Master of Piano Performance and Teaching degree and forged her reputation as an outstanding classical piano player.

During her time in Ukraine, Anna participated in countless festivals and composers' conferences, and devoted almost ten years of her career to promote modern Ukrainian music.

She is now regarded as one of Australia's finest young concert piano players and is fast gaining a reputation as an accompanist of exceptional ability.

Anna has appeared on numerous occasions as a recitalist and soloist with orchestras and ensembles in Eastern Europe, Germany, Canada, Czechoslovakia, Macedonia, New Zealand, Australia and the United States.

On arrival in Sydney in 1995, she was immediately engaged in various capacities by the National Academy of Music, the Sydney Conservatorium, the Sydney Opera and Ballet Orchestra, and SBS Youth Orchestra.

In Australia, she has made a number of studio recordings and live performance broadcasts for ABC Classic FM, ABC TV, SBS Radio and 2MBS FM.

Anna's busy performance schedule has included:

  • Several appearances in the West Australian Symphony Orchestra's Chamber Music series, including a live broadcast with the orchestra's wind ensemble.
  • All-Chopin recitals as part of Perth's Terrace Proms, an event televised nationally by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
  • Appearances at the Blackwood River Chamber Music Festival in 1999 and 2000 where she performed as a soloist and as an accompanist.
  • An all-Russian recital and performances with violist Esther van Stralen, soprano Jane Edwards, baritone Michael Leighton-Jones and others at the Fremantle Heritage Festival.
  • Chamber music and solo recitals on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's national classic FM station.
  • Collaborations with fellow pianist and composer Roger Smalley exploring rarely heard repertoires for two pianos, including works by Reger, Bax, Busoni and Stravinsky and performing the latter's Concerto for Two Pianos live on ABC Classic FM in 1999.

  • Anna Sleptsova became an Australian citizen in 1999 and now lives in Perth, Western Australia, where she is much loved for her classical piano performances at the Terrace Proms, the Blackwood River Chamber Music Festival, Mozart at Twilight and other events.

    She has collaborated with various distinguished classical musicians since arriving in Australia including Esther van Stralen, Barbara Jane Gilby, Jane Edwards, Sally Anne Russell, Michael Goldschlager, Simon Tedeschi, Roger Smalley, Joel Marangella, Rod McGrath, Allan Meyer, Paul Wright and Daniel Kossov.

    Churchill Fellowship

    In 2001, Anna was the only West Australian artist to receive a Churchill Fellowship.

    She travelled to France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada and the United States to discover the latest approaches in piano performance.

    This four month marathon of professional development included Anna's participation in piano festivals in Paris (France), Oxford (UK) and Banff (Canada).

    Anna is very much in demand as a piano teacher and has recently visited Victoria University in New Zealand and Ehime University in Japan where she gave a classical piano music recital and conducted Master classes.

    In April, 2002, Anna released her first CD highlighting classical musicians.
