Russian virtuoso pianist and composer GéNIA is pleased to announce the release of her new Limited Edition EP, “Dreams of Today, Thoughts of Tomorrow” on 28th March 2014. This EP contains five piano solo compositions, and is GéNIA’s debut album as a composer.

Publicly known as a classical concert pianist, GéNIA was challenged by the Director of Caffè Nero, Pablo Ettinger who heard GéNIA’s improvisations, to compose something that customers in his Caffè would like to listen to. “I wanted to convey a feeling through my music, one that people experience while having a simple cup of coffee. For some a cup of coffee becomes fundamental and the most important first drink of the day. We often think about our past, present or build plans and hopes for the future, whilst having this cup. For a modern person it becomes a modern day meditation” says GéNIA.

Composed mainly in Paris, whilst GéNIA took a sabbatical in 2013, it is influenced by Parisian culture and the lifestyle. GéNIA’s frequent trips between London and Paris provided the inspiration for a track entitled ‘London – Paris’ and was composed on the Eurostar.

“Coffee with Milk’, ‘Sweet Memories’, ‘Last Dance’, ‘London- Paris’ and ‘Past Love’ have already been performed in various concert halls in London and on BBC London Radio, where GéNIA is a frequent guest, as well as in all the branches of Caffé Nero in the UK.

GèNIA will be playing a series of concerts in support of the EP throughout forthcoming months. The next date is 25 April 2014 at the Wathern Hall, London.

About Piano-Yoga®

Piano-Yoga® is a unique holistic method of piano playing, performing and teaching designed for all levels of pianists. It has been created and developed by Russian virtuoso pianist and educator GéNIA.This multi-dimensional method combines the fundamentals of Russian piano schools with Eastern philosophies, especially yoga. The aims are focusing your piano practice, improving concentration, effectively building strength in the muscles which work the fingers and hands, establishing good posture at the piano and conquering performance nerves amongst other topics.

Piano-Yoga® radically improves technique and unblocks tension. The method promotes noticeable progress on the piano by utilizing the principles of movement, gravity and breathing thus forming a more organic approach towards piano playing. It can also be used as a stress management technique.

Piano-Yoga® draws on specific methods which encompass the holistic personal development and well-being of the player and as a result helps to open and connect both mind and body.

‘I was one revitalised pianist and a teacher ready with a new range of tools to support and develop her students! Thank you GéNIA – this was a five-star course’
Karen Marshall from Music Teacher Magazine
