Event Details

Russian Center New York cordially invites you to an evening in celebration of the 175th birthday of the great Russian composer Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky. The festivities will be held at the Van Alen Mansion, 15 East 65th Street in Manhattan beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Tchaikovsky had an immense impact on classical music. One of the most performed composers in the world, his music is widely celebrated for its innovation, beauty, and distinctive style that has come to epitomize the Russian classical “sound.”

Our celebration will sample the great composer’s beloved song, operatic and solo piano repertoire, and feature performances by two noted artists: soprano Anya Fidelia and pianist Irina Nuzova. Rapidly gaining worldwide recognition as exciting and gifted talents, this Russian-born duo will present unique interpretations of Tchaikovsky’s works that are deeply rooted in Russian tradition and as an expression of their love for the master’s music.  In addition to selected Tchaikovsky compositions, our program will include pieces by Nikolai Rubinstein (who had a huge influence on Tchaikovsky) and Sergei Rachmaninoff (who continued Tchaikovsky’s tradition).




Anya Fidelia / Soprano

A versatile and powerful soprano voice with extraordinary charm, Anya Fidelia is on the rise in the operatic world.

Anya made her professional debut at the Caramoor International Festival, where she has returned in subsequent seasons. A Santa Fe Opera and Lyric Opera of Chicago National Auditions finalist, she is the winner of numerous professional vocal competitions. Her credits include engagements with the Metropolitan Opera Guild, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, and New Israeli Opera, and performances at the Centro de Bellas Artes in Puerto Rico, the Moscow International Performing Arts Center, the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, and the Carnegie Weill Recital Hall. Anya’s repertoire includes performances as Santuzza in Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana, Tatyana in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, Lisa in Tchaikovsky’s The Queen of Spades; Mimi in Puccini’s La Boheme, and Georgetta in Puccini’s Il Tabarro. She has had roles in La Forza del Destino, Un Ballo in Maschera, Il Trovatore, Don Carlo, Suor Angelica, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly, and Tosca, as well as Poulenc’s Blanche de la Force (The Dialogues of the Carmelites). Her performances have also been featured in soundtracks for Tribeca and Cannes award-winning films. 

Irina Nuzova / Piano

Irina is rapidly earning a reputation as a “rise above mere virtuosity” with “intensity of feeling” and “profound interpretation.”

Born in Moscow, Irina made her debut with the Omsk Philharmonic at age 14. She studied at the Gnesin Academy under the direction of Alexander Satz before moving to the U.S. where she continued her musical education at the Manhattan School of Music. She worked for many years in the studio Cello Harvey Shapiro at the Juilliard School, as well as with pianist Jean-Bernard Pommier, Eteri Andzhaparidze and Vladimir Feltsman.  Irina holds a Doctor of Musical Arts from the Hartt School of Music at the University of Hartford.. Throughout her successful career, she has developed a variety of styles, exhibiting virtuosic brilliance and depth of feeling. A winner of numerous international competitions, Irina has appeared in recital as a soloist and chamber musician in the United States, Europe, and South America. She has performed as part of the Amici della Musica concert series in Florence, at the Teatro Massima in Catania, Italy, the Hermitage State Museum in St. Petersburg, the Moscow Conservatory, the Phillips Collection in Washington D.C., Carnegie Hall in New York, and many other venues.
