Piano-Yoga® Founder GéNIA releases video of ‘Paganini Jazz’ performance

May 13th, 2015 — 3:05pm

This video, recorded in September 2014 in Nice, France, is a great opportunity to see and hear GéNIA at her most virtuosic. Paganini Jazz is a demanding piece, and with a very clear view of the piano keyboard, the video offers a window into how GéNIA approaches this challenge. For those who want some insight into her technique, this is footage that can be carefully studied.

Paganini Jazz StillIt is also a chance to hear how GéNIA handles Jazz; something of a departure from both her classical repertoire and her songwriting. That the answer is ‘very well’ is evident from the way she navigates the contrasting moods of the piece, and manages to maintain such a smooth playing style even in the most up-tempo and dramatic of moments. It is also evident from the standing ovation she receives at the end of the song! A dynamic performance full of variety, it is certainly worth a few minutes of your time to investigate.

As well as being an outstanding rendition, GéNIA’s performance was on this occasion in support of UNICEF, and the funds raised from the concert meant that 560 girls throughout Guinéa, Mozambique, Togo, Malaisie and Madagascar received an education for a year. Good music for a good cause!
