The Connection between Art and Resilience, Part Four
Welcome to episode 12 of season one of Resilient Conversations, a podcast by PartnersGlobal that explores different facets of civic space resiliency. In this podcast, PartnersGlobal co-executive director, Roselie Vasquez-Yetter speaks with cellist, Tanya Anisimova, in the fourth in a series of vignettes on the artist collective who collaborated with PartnersGlobal and the International Human Rights Arts Festival.
Cellist, composer, arranger Tanya Anisimova is a unique artist whose performances encompass standard repertoire, original compositions, and otherworldly improvisations with her own vocal accompaniment. Tanya has appeared on the stages of Carnegie Hall in NYC, the Great Hall of The Moscow Conservatory in Russia, The National Cathedral and The National Gallery Of Art in Washington, D.C., Beethoven-Haus in Bonn, Germany, and many more. In 2001, Tanya became the only cellist in the world to ever perform and record the Complete Violin Sonatas and Partitas by J.S. Bach. As a composer, her music is regularly performed by leading musicians in the U.S. and in Europe. Currently, Tanya is working on a new project titled Appalachian Dreams. The idea grew out of reflecting on her experiences during twelve years spent in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
