The music style of Elizaveta Sanicheva is a bizarre mix of controversies – introversive submergence into inner imaginary world and extroversive emotionality, the spontaneousness of the emotional impulses and the refined rational organisation of musical structure.
Elizaveta Sanicheva graduated Moscow P. I. Tchaikovskij Conservatory, composition department, prof. R. Ledenyov, 2006. During her studies in the conservatory, she participated in workshops of several famous composers as Klaas de Vries, Guy Rebel and G. Stabler. Her works were performed at the Moscow Conservatory during modern music concerts.
Elizaveta Sanicheva also studied harpsichord and organ and participated in many concerts and projects in the conservatory as a harpsichordist and organist. Her radiant gift of voice allowed her to take part in many contemporary music concerts and competitions, where she performed her own works and as well as the works of other composers.
In the year 2004, she became a participant of world-wide project, Prometheus, which consisted of five young Russian composers who wrote music to R.G. Mohnnau’s famous poem, “Prometheus”, translated into five different European languages.
During her conservatory studies, E. Sanicheva also studied at jazz college in Moscow with the famous jazz pianist, Lev Kushnir.
From 2006 to 2007, she worked as a Musical Instruments Chair Assistant at the Moscow State Open Pedagogic University (named after M. Scholokhov), where she taught composition, arranging, and also taught her own “first in Russia” jazz aesthetics course.
In 2007, she became a member of the Russian Composers’ Union. In the same year, she was given a diploma from the “2nd International Modern Art and Education Competition”. In 2008 she received the HSP Huygens Scholarship (Netherlands Ministry of Education, Culture and Science Scholarship) and now continues her studies at Rotterdam Conservatory (with Klaas de Vries).
Works of Elizaveta Sanicheva are being performed regularly in concerts and festivals both in Russia and abroad.
