Cellisimo Ruslan and Ann (2).jpg (438x480)
Dynamic soloists Ruslan Biryukov and Anne Suda join forces to present CELLISIMO duo, an experience in dual virtuosity. Passionate about sharing the warm vocal quality heard exclusively from cellos performing together, Ruslan and Anne found an artistic connection while performing together in Los Angeles Cello Quartet. They further embrace the power of cello collaboration in Cellisimo. With their respective Russian and American backgrounds, Ruslan and Anne represent two countries with rich musical heritages. Dedicated to championing the solidarity of the human spirit, Cellisimo embraces the opportunity to serve as musical ambassadors, helping to unify a divided world by uniting and inspiring audiences from all walks of life. The duo also speaks to a range of audiences by creating multi-genre performances and interactive experiences, bringing artists of different disciplines to its projects. Cellisimo works to expand chamber music repertoire by commissioning and premiering pieces from composers worldwide. Recent collaborations include projects with composers from Iran, Kazakhstan, and the US/Puerto Rico. Cellisimo is a project of the Positive Motions Foundation (initiated by Ruslan Biryukov).
