Instrumental /Percussion

The percussionist Vivi Vassileva is one of the most fascinating classical soloists of her generation. Her main aim is to touch people, to tell stories expressed in terms of melodies, harmonies and rhythms.
She is motivated and inspired by the diversity of tonal colours and the opportunities they offer, and that is why she is so convinced that percussion is the instrument of the 21:st century. Vassileva is not only commission new compositions; she allso arranges and composes, constantly on the lookout for new formations and heading up various chamber music groups. As a result, this new album features works by Guillo Espel, Éric Sammut, Oriol Cruixent and Keiko Abe, most of them premiere recordings, alongside even some rarely heard or premiere arrangements and compositions by herself.

Over the past five years, pianist Anna Vinnitskaya has made three Alpha recordings dedicated to Shostakovitch, Brahms et Rachmaninov.
Evgeni Koroliov is a great master of the piano, a great Bach specialist, whose recordings of Bach are an acclaimed benchmark. His piano duo with his wife, Ljupka Hadzi-Georgieva, has made its mark over the past few years in all the major international concert venues.
Also as a highly reputed teacher, Koroliov was Anna Vinnitskaya’s professor at Hamburg. ‘Though I no longer study with him i still meet and talk with him several times a week,’ she confides. ‘That helps me further in my development, not just as a pianist but as a human being… Now that I am myself a professor at the same university, I try to carry it on, to pass his experience on to others.’
These three Slavonic pianists, who for some time have been aiming to record the Bach concertos as a team, decided to invite a German ensemble that is itself highly expert in Bach interpretation, the Potsdam Chamber Orchestra; they recorded this double album in a legendary venue where some of the greatest artists have recorded: the Jesus-Christus-Kirche in Berlin.
