Praised for their “stirring performances of rare repertory” (Fanfare), the husband and wife team of Anna and Dmitri Shelest traces its roots to Ukraine’s prestigious Kharkiv Special Music School. At their Carnegie Hall debut in February, 2018, the duo’s CD release of “Ukrainian Rhapsody” brought renewed international attention to the music of their homeland. Subsequently, that recording has been featured as the Album of the Week on radio stations throughout the United States, including WCRB (Boston) and KUSC (Los Angeles). Having been classmates since middle school, the artists began performing together after their marriage in the United States. Their inventive programs brought them to a broad array of venues from concert stages to state functions, and, in the words of then-Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon, “realized diplomacy through music.”
Anna and Dmitri Shelest and their two sons make their home in New York City.
