Dreaming and exploring something new are the leitmotifs of Anna Sutyagina’s artistic creation . Still shaped by the traditional training of the Russian school, the pianist opened up to new developments early on in order to allow more space for the imagination in her playing. In the Münchner Salon , which she founded, she combined music and literature in a theatrical form and the work and artistic influences of strong women such as Sappho, Lou Salomé, George Sand, Martha Gellhorn, Kathi Kobus, Madame Pompadour or Anais Nin processed. She started experimenting with music and light at an early age and, together with lighting designers, developed a concert performance under the name “Concerti Illumini” . In video clips her famous musical works were staged.   Concerts, such as in the Herkulessaal in Munich with over 1000 listeners, but above all discussion concerts with 30 – 200 listeners in a wide variety of locations shape her artistic work. As a pianist of the modern generation, she is very present in social media . Over 15,000 visitors regularly see and hear your weekly recordings on Facebook, Youtube and Linkedin.
