Anna Tulchinskaya completed her master’s degree at the Royal Northern College of Music in 2020 as a scholar under the guidance of her professors Leland Chen and Pavel Fischer. Throughout her time at the Northern, she performed in numerous masterclasses, including with James Ehnes, Ning Feng and Mauricio Fuks. Furthermore, Anna has performed concertos with numerous orchestras in the north, such as the Burnley, Blackburn and Settle symphony orchestras.
Anna is a member of the Emmeline string quartet, who are currently taking part in the Kings Place Chamber Studios, under the mentorship of David Waterman. The quartet was also selected to be part of the RNCM Quartet Studio of 2019-2020. Their studies were generously sponsored by the Albert and Eugene Frost trust, and they received a variety of performance opportunities, such as performing Mendelssohn’s Octet with the Elias Quartet, playing Schulhoff’s concerto for quartet and orchestra with the RNCM orchestra as well as giving regular concert performances throughout Manchester.
A keen orchestral musician, Anna is the co-principal of Broen Ensemble, an exciting young chamber orchestra that was the 2019 winner of the Tunnell Trust Award, and since 2019 she has been the leader of Tundra Ensemble. Anna particularly enjoys performing contemporary works as well as working in collaboration with composers, and in 2019 she gave the world premiere of Lucy Hale’s violin concerto.
