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 prizes 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, Canada, Mexico, 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.

Acclaimed for her innovative approach to classical music, Ani Gogova appears in cutting-edge collaborations with artists of other media such as photography, film, live animation, poetry, fashion, and dance, creating fresh and memorable classical experiences. This season she performs in Canada, France, Austria, Italy, Bulgaria, and around the US. Recent performances include solo debut at Carnegie Hall, debut as soloist with the State Orchestra of Mexico and Brevard Symphony, appearances at Chicago Cultural Center, Harris Theater in Chicago, and the Bulgarian Embassy Series in Washington, DC. James Harrington of American Records Guide writes, “Gogova is a complete modern classical musician, with the ability to communicate her music through straight concert performances, videos, multi-genre presentations, and recordings...I would go out of my way to see her perform.”

Her latest album titled “Fantasies, Fairytales, and Nightmares” was released 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.” (Gary Lemco, Audiophile Audition) Next season, she will have two new releases. “The Tempest” will feature music inspired by the writings of William Shakespeare, while “Immortal Beloved” will explore the piano music Beethoven dedicated to three women considered by scholars to be the mysterious lady he addressed in his famous “immortal beloved” letter.

Gogova holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and has been living in Chicago since 2003 when she was appointed at the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University becoming the youngest professor at the time to join the world-renowned faculty of the Music Conservatory. In addition, she has taught young pianist from all over the world at the prestigious Interlochen Arts Camp in Michigan and has judged several international and national competitions.
