Anastasia Rizikov
Anastasia RizikovAt age seven, Canadian pianist Anastasia Rizikov made her orchestral debut performing Polunin's Concertino in A minor with the National Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine, conducted by Mykola Diadiura. Now 13, Anastasia is already showing signs of being “one to watch”. She is currently performing solo concerts in major US cities such as Detroit, Chicago, Binghamton, New York, New Jersey, and Washington. Anastasia recently gave two performances of E. Grieg Piano Concerto in A minor: one with National Academy Orchestra of Canada conducted by Boris Brott in Burlington, Ontario and the other with Baleares Symphony Orchestra conducted by Salvador Brotons in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. Previous to these endeavors, she appeared for two performances of Kabalevsky’s Piano Concerto No. 3 with the International Symphony Orchestra conducted by Robert Debbaut in Sarnia, Ontario, and in Port Huron, Michigan. In 2010, Anastasia performed as guest soloist with the Plymouth Symphony Orchestra in Michigan conducted by Nan Washburn, in performances of Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in F Minor.

Anastasia won first place in all the following international competitions: the Rotary International Piano Competition (Senior Division up to 28 years old) in Palma de Mallorca, Spain (May, 2011); the Thousand Islands International Piano Competition for Young People (Cape Vincent, USA, 2010); the Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition (2009), which lead to a Carnegie Hall debut; and the Vladimir Horowitz International Young Pianists Competition in Ukraine (2006), among others. Nationally, Anastasia won first place in both the Canadian Music Competition (2007) and the Canadian Chopin Competition (2010), leading to an appearance at a gala winners’ concert at Koerner Hall in Toronto.
