ANNA LITVINENKO, cello

An American cellist of Cuban and Ukrainian heritage, Anna Litvinenko has captured the attention of audiences in venues throughout Europe and the Americas. At six she began the cello with her father Konstantin Litvinenko and from a young age gained attention at competitions, gave solo recitals, and appeared as a soloist with the Miami Symphony, the New World Symphony, la Orquesta Juvenil Teresa Carreño, and the Odessa Philharmonic. 

A Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award winner, a Sphinx Competition laureate, and a Young Arts winner, Anna has been invited to perform in chamber music performances throughout Miami, New York City, Washington D.C., and London. She has collaborated with musicians from the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, and worked with Joshua Bell in “Joshua Bell – A Young Arts Master Class.”

While dedicated to the traditional classical repertoire, Anna has embraced new classical music styles. She  participated in the 8th Creative Dialogue Symposium, working with new music composers and exploring improvisation with Magnus Lindberg, cellist Anssi Karttunen, and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones. In 2015 she  premiered Yuri Boguinia’s Concerto for Cello and Orchestra at Carnegie Hall with the Aeon Music Ensemble.

Anna completed her undergraduate degree at Julliard where she was a principal cellist in the Julliard Orchestra, and was awarded the John Erskine Prize for excellence. She prizes her cello study with Joel Krosnick, baroque cello with Phoebe Carrai, composition with Philip Lasser, and improvisation with Noam Sivan.

In the Fall of 2016 she began graduate studies in London on scholarship with Richard Lester at Royal College of Music. She is grateful for the generous financial support of her studies by the Jack Kent Foundation.

Jazz and guitar legend James Blood Ulmer is among the most distinctive and influential free jazz electric guitarists to emerge in the past four decades. He has worked and recorded with Ornette Coleman, Art Blakey, Joe Henderson, Arthur Blythe, David Murray, Ronald Shannon Jackson, Vernon Reid and George Adams as bandleader and sideman. Ulmer is recognized as a central figure in the post-fusion movements of 1970s and 1980s jazz. Yet within this experimental framework, his guitar playing and songwriting incorporate blues, funk, and rock idioms, making it difficult to categorize his innovative musical forms.

"The missing link between Jimi Hendrix and Wes Montgomery on one hand, between P-Funk and Mississippi Fred McDowell on the other." Greg Tate, Village Voice
