Music & Dance

iAn & ANi Duo is a Chicago-based cello and piano duo comprised of Russian cellist Ian Maksin and Bulgarian pianist Ani Gogova.

In a little over a year since their inception, iAN & ANi have performed more than 50 concerts in different parts of the USA and Europe, and at several international festivals including Apollonia in Sozopol, Bulgaria. Their performances have also been broadcast on National Public Radio in the U.S., Bulgarian National Radio and Russian Radio.

Their debut album, "Tango Plus," released October 2012, features new arrangements for cello and piano of Astor Piazzolla's music, as well as works by Ravel, Ginastera, DeFalla, Rodio Shchedrin, and a world premiere of a work by award-winning Chicago composer Ilya Levinson commissioned by the duo.
