A unique figure on the international scene both as soloist and chamber musician, the violist Anna Serova has several compositions dedicated to her in recent years by some of the most important contemporary composers. In fact, by writing for her they have created a new genre in composition uniting the form of the concert piece with the action of the theatre.

The warm, shining beauty of her sound makes her very much in demand as a chamber musician and she has collaborated with artists like Ivry Gitils, Bruno Giuranna, Salvatore Accardo, Rocco Filippini, Filippo Faes, Toby Hoffman, Rainer Honeck, Remus Azoitei and others.

She has performed as a soloist with orchestras such as Moscow State Symphony, Siberian Symphony, Karelian Symphony, Krasnoyarsk Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto, Orchestra del Teatro Olimpico, Belgrade Philharmonic, Amazonas Philharmonica, Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma, Orchestra dell'Arena di Verona, Croation Radio Television, New Zealand Symphony etc...
