Pianist Nadia Kisseleva was born in Crimea, where she began learning the piano from an early age.
She participated in many international piano competitions and won numerous prizes, including first prize at both the ‘Vladimir Horowitz’ and ‘Sergei Prokofiev’ competitions in Ukraine. After winning the International Moscow Television Contest ‘Nutcracker’, broadcast on the Russian ‘Kultura’ TV channel, she was invited to study at the Moscow P. I. Tchaikovsky Conservatory.
In 2012, Nadia enrolled in The Gnessins’ Russian Academy of Music (Moscow, Russia) to join the class of Professor Vladimir Tropp. In 2016, she graduated and was offered a place with a scholarship at the Royal Northern College of Music, where she completed Master of Music in Performance with Distinction. Since September 2018, Nadia has been generously supported by ABRSM as a PGDip student, studying with Dr. David Jones and Professor Graham Scott.
She performed at some of the world’s most prestigious venues, including Steinway Hall and the DiMenna Centre for Classical Music (New York), The Great Hall of Moscow Conservatoire (Moscow), Bridgewater Hall (Manchester), Salle Gaveau (Paris), Opera Garnier (Monte Carlo), Rector’s Palace (Dubrovnik), Lysenko Hall at the National Philharmonic of Ukraine and Mariinsky Palace (Kiev) as well as many others.
