Glendale Community Concerts presents Anna and Kirill Gliadkovsky (piano solo and duo) on Sunday March 25, at 2:30 p.m. They both studied at the most prestigious musical institutions in Russia — the Tchaikovsky Conservatory and the Gnessins Russian Music Academy in Moscow. Anna also studied at the Special Music School for gifted children in Kiev.
Before marrying, each artist pursued a very successful career as a soloist and performed in major concert halls in Russia, such as philharmonic halls in St. Petersburg and Kiev and Bolshoi and Rachmaninoff Hall in Moscow.
Anna and Kirill now perform as a duo piano team, in addition to their solo work. Sometimes they are joined by their daughter Anastassia who is 8 years old. The artists have recorded several CDs.
