Acclaimed for her innovative approach to classical music, Ani Gogova appears in over 40 performances each season throughout Europe and North America. Her cutting-edge collaborations with artists of other media such as photography, film, live animation, poetry, and dance create fresh and memorable classical experiences.
Ani Gogova’s “dazzling artistic presence”, “masterful poetic expression”, “ravishing colors”, and “virtuoso technique beyond reproach” have been captivating audiences around the world for almost two decades. Her career started early in her native Bulgaria after winning top prices in several national and international competitions for young pianists. Since then Gogova has appeared in solo recitals, at festivals and in concerts with orchestras in Bulgaria, Italy, Serbia, England, Slovenia, Romania, Portugal, Macedonia, France, and throughout the US. Her performances have been heard on NPR, WBEZ, TED Talks, Bulgarian National Radio, FM Classic Radio, Interlochen Public Radio, and WFMT Chicago and have been selected as Critics’ Pick by Time Out Chicago Magazine and the Chicago Tribune.
Her latest album titled “Fantasies, Fairytales, and Nightmares” was released in October of 2014 on Blue Griffin Recording label gathering critical acclaim for her playing being “quite hypnotic”, “eliciting fine nuances”, “project[ing] a special magic “ and for its “incisive accuracy” “as if she were Martha Argerich on speed.” (Audiophile Audition
