I am a professional and highly experienced harpist and pianist, based in Weardale, Bishop Auckland, County Durham.
Originally I am from the city of Voronezh in Russia. Voronezh is one of the largest cultural and music centres in Russia, and is located close to Moscow.
I moved to England more than 2 years ago. I started learning music from the age of 6 years old.
As a Pianist. I graduated from Voronezh College of Music and then from the Academy of Arts. I then went on to complete an internship at the Moscow Conservatoire.
I worked as an accompanist at the College of Music and the Academy of Arts. As an accompanist I am the holder of many diplomas from both Russian and International competitions.
I have also performed many times as a soloist with the Symphony Orchestra of the Voronezh Philharmonic.
I worked for more than 15 years as a pianist, and performer on a celestone and harpsichord as a part of a Symphony Philharmonic Orchestra.
For more than 10 years I played in a Chamber Music duet (Piano and Clarinet) with a professor of the Academy of Music, who was also a soloist of the Voronezh Philharmonic. The magnificent clarinetist Vladimir Lovchikov and I performed many concerts across Russia and abroad.
I also collaborated with the Union of Composers, performing works by contemporary composers.
As a Harpist. I graduated from Music College and attended the Moscow Conservatoire for further teaching.
For approximately 10 years (up to my move to the U.K.) I was the artist of the Voronezh Symphony Orchestra, and also an orchestra artist at the Voronezh Opera and Ballet Theatre.
I played under the direction of outstanding conductors of our time, both from Russia and abroad. I was lucky enough to participate several times as a harpist in the tour concerts of the “Moscow Virtuosos” Chamber Orchestra. These were conducted by the world famous conductor Vladimir Spivakov.
As a Pianist, and as a Harpist, I have vast experience of performing concerts in Russia, as well as all across Europe in countries such as Austria, Germany, Switzerland,, Italy, Czech Republic, Hungary and many others.
My various repertoire covers music of different musical styles like Baroque, Classical, Romanticism and Impressionism, as well as Contemporary Music, Film Soundtracks, Popular and Traditional Songs as well as Blues and Jazz.
So I am sure you will be able to choose music that meets your requirements and will bring a note of elegancy, romanticism and charm to your special day and make it unforgettable for you and your guests.
I’ll be more than happy to meet you as many times as it will be necessary, and discuss all the details.
