Anna Goryacheva has loved classical music all her life.

At age nine, she had her first breakthrough in the classical music landscape when she made her orchestral debut in Hungary. The following year, she held her first philharmonic recital, playing Mozart’s Concerto No. 23 with the Kaliningrad State Symphony Orchestra and appeared as a soloist with the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Pavel Berman on tour across Eastern Europe.
Ready to conquer new heights, Anna Goryacheva aims to expand her fanbase with her new single and debut album.
“When you hear Philip Glass’ pieces, you’ll probably come up with your own picture. I felt very free and open in terms of interpretation, and as an artist, I enjoyed this freedom of being creative while performing this piece, as I could fully express myself,” said Anna Goryacheva. “This piece is based on repetitive sounds and rhythms, an excellent example of Glass and the minimalist style. Once I heard this piece, I immediately felt that something had moved in me. From a distance, you can sense the atmosphere, mood, and the colors of the harmonies. The hypnotic, repressive, incrementally unfurling nature of Glass’ music makes it gorgeous and moving; its simplicity and emotion behind it reflect today’s uncertain times. It gives you strength to keep going,” the classical music creative added.
On top of enriching her innate talent for classical music, Anna Goryacheva is also honing her entrepreneurial passion as the brains behind the Elite Piano Institute, a piano school known for reaching young, talented pianists and coaching piano teachers in the United States and abroad.
