Very Successful Piano Concert of Piano-Yoga® Students!

December 14th, 2015 — 10:19pm

SubstandardFullSizeRenderWe had a fantastic concert of GéNIA’s students at Piano-Yoga® School (Concert No 22!)  last weekend. Students ranged from age 7 to over 60 and the programme included works by JS. Bach, F. Chopin, F. Poulenc, M. Ponce, A. Ginastera, C. Debussy (Petite Suite for 4 Hands) and S Rachmaninoff (Suite No.2 for Two Pianos).

GéNIA also took part and Premiered her composition for solo piano ‘Midnight Dream’.

As usual the party at Schott Music Hall continued with the afterparty at one of the beautiful French restaurants in Soho. The students and their guests had a great time!

Regular bi-annual concerts became a great tradition at Piano-Yoga® School, as GéNIA believes that through public performance one can really learn the piece. ‘You usually need to perform the piece up to five times in public, before you can confidently say that you have learned it.’ says GéNIA.

 

 

FullSizeRender-2Now we are looking forward to a fresh start in 2016 and the next concert scheduled for June!

The concerts provide an excellent platform not only for learning the pieces, but also for practising to perform before important exams and other performances. Our guests usually come from all walks of life ( sometimes literally people who are wandering in the shop at that moment) and it gives students a fantastic incentive and feeling of achievement.

Piano-Yoga® GéNIA Releases New EP ‘Dreams of Today, Thoughts of Tomorrow Vol.2′

December 9th, 2014 — 2:49pm

Russian virtuoso pianist and composer GéNIA is pleased to announce the release of her new EP, “Dreams of Today, Thoughts of Tomorrow Vol.2” on 14 December 2014. The EP contains 6 solo piano compositions, and is GéNIA’s sophomore EP continuing on from “Dreams of Today, Thoughts of Tomorrow Vol.1” released in March 2014.

Composed mainly in London, GéNIA’s sophomore EP contains 6 pieces inspired by coffee culture. These compositions have been performed at various concert halls in London and other European cultural hotspots. “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.

The EP was recorded at Master Chord Studio in London with engineer Raoul Terzi, on a beautiful Steinway & Sons Concert Grand Piano and produced by Hayden Parsey before being mastered at Metropolis Studios by Grammy award winning engineer Tim Young (The Beatles, Michael Nyman, Massive Attack).

GèNIA will be performing a series of concerts at Caffè Nero Heathrow Terminal 2, one of the largest coffee houses in the world, to launch the EP on 14th and 28th December. GéNIA has also been nominated as Caffè Nero’s classical artist of the month.
