“Bashkirova herself represents an impressive role model as a pianist who smartly animates every sound with figurative language and life,” the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung wrote about pianist Elena Bashkirova, who was born in Moscow and studied at Tchaikovsky Conservatory in her father’s (Dimitrij Bashkirov) master class, himself a famous pianist and teacher.

In 1998, Elena Bashkirova founded the International Jerusalem Chamber Music Festival. In her position as Artistic Director, she creates an annual chamber music event featuring international artists.
