Valentina Lisitsa (Ukrainian: Валентина Лисиця, translit. Valentyna Lysytsya, Russian: Валентина Лисица) is a Ukrainian-born classical pianist. Lisitsa resides in North Carolina in the USA.
Her husband, Alexei Kuznetsoff, is also a pianist and her partner in a number of piano duets.

Born in Kiev, Ukraine, Lisitsa started playing the piano at the age of three, performing her first solo recital at the age of four. Despite her early disposition to music, her dream at that point was to become a professional chess player. Lisitsa attended the Lysenko music school for Gifted Children and, later, Kiev Conservatory, where she and her future husband, Alexei Kuznetsoff, studied under Dr. Ludmilla Tsvierko. It was when Lisitsa met Kuznetsoff that she began to take music more seriously. In 1991 they won the first prize in The Murray Dranoff Two Piano Competition. In the same year, they moved to the United States to further their careers as concert pianists. Their New York debut was at the Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center in 1995.

Lisitsa has performed in various venues around the world, including Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, and the Musikverein. Recently, she has been the pianist in recital engagements collaborating with violinist Hilary Hahn.[5] Many of Lisitsa's performances, including Frédéric Chopin's Op. 10 and Op. 25 Etudes and Beethoven's Appassionata Sonata, can be viewed on YouTube.

Lisitsa has recorded 6 CDs (two solo CDs) for Audiofon Records (two are in duet with Alexei Kuznetsoff), a Gold CD for CiscoMusic label with cellist DeRosa, a duet recital on VAI label with violinist Ida Haendel, DVDs of Frédéric Chopin's 24 Etudes, Schubert-Liszt Schwanengesang, and her most recent DVD titled Black and Pink. Lisitsa recently collaborated with HORSE the band on their song, "Rape Escape", featured on their latest album, Desperate Living.


The incomparable talents of pianist Valentina Lisitsa have been recognized in glowing reviews as a "gigantic talent" and as "the kind of talent that comes along once in a generation." A performance of Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto at the Grant Park Festival in Chicago was described by the Chicago Sun-Times as "jaw-dropping."

Ms. Lisitsa is capturing the attention of audiences throughout the world for her stunning virtuosity and unequaled sense of lyricism.
