"Anna Fedorova's playing is "unfailingly sensitive, poetic and tasteful, the phrases flexibly shaped even when the technical going gets tough (...) she never forces her tone and never loses her cool” (Gramophone).
From an early age, the Ukrainian-born pianist Anna Fedorova showed an innate musical maturity and amazing technical abilities. Her live recording of Rachmaninoff’s 2nd Piano Concerto has more than 35 million views on YouTube and is highly acclaimed by critics and world-renowned musicians. She regularly performs at the world’s most prestigious concert halls such as the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, New York's Carnegie Hall, Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, Tonhalle Zürich, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Bunka Kaikan in Tokyo, and many others.

Together with befriended and well-known musicians, she raised over 100,000 Euro for humanitarian aid organizations on 6 March 2022 in Concertgebouw Amsterdam.
