"Her playing is powerful, vigorous and volcanic. Not only does her technique appear to be boundless but it seems that Richter’s spirit is in the hall"

Versatile artist and life-affirming woman, honoured with a Gold Medal at the World Piano competition in Cincinnati in 2003, Swiss pianist of Russian and Ukranian descent was born into a family of professional pianists.

Voltchok started to study piano at the age of four at Moscow Gnessin School , continued at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory College with Larissa Dedova, Rowan University of New Jersey with Veda Zuponcic, Basel Music Academy in Switzerland with Rudolf Buchbinder and completed her studies at the University of Maryland with Santiago Rodriguez where she became a Doctor of Musical Arts. 

Since her orchestral debut with Haydn piano concerto at the age eight Anastasia Voltchok has performed extensively throughout Western and Eastern Europe and the USA. Among her renowned colleagues on stage are performers and conductors such as Martha Argerich, Lahav Shani, Valery Gergiev, Mario Venzago, Michal Nesterowicz, Dennis Russell Davies, Howard Griffiths, Maxim Rysanov, Oleg Kaskiv, Simon Gaudenz, Daria Scarano. As a recitalist she performs at New York’s Lincoln Center, Tonhalle Zürich, the Mariinsky Concert Hall in St. Petersburg, Santa Cecilia in Rome and Victoria Hall in Geneva.

For Voltchok, visual art is another essential means of expression, because it expands her sensorial connection with the audience. Unlike music, Voltchok notes that art can be “seen by the eye or touched" , for her it is of great importance to “express the energy and the emotion of the moment.”

Recent tours include appearances with Kremerata Baltica and Gidon Kremer, München Philharmonic with Lahav Shani, Vilnius Chamber Orchestra with Adria Cepajte, performances at the Auditorium de Teneriffe,and Salle Cortot in Paris.

 

In 2016 Anastasia Voltchok founded the “Stars at the Rhine” music festival in Basel, Switzerland,  its main focus is the promotion of young artists. The recent edition of 2022 featured the Swiss premiere of Evgeny Kissin string quartet and a Concerto competition for young performers in collaboration with the Soloists of the Menuhin International Academy.
