GéNIA

 

GéNIA is recording a new album which is due to be released later in the year. She loved the studio and the piano that she has chosen, as she has fallen in love with the instrument the moment she touched the keys. The full story will be revealed later together with the music.

The album consists of 12 new compositions and has an intimate feel to it. Watch the space!

GéNIA gives great performance at Soundcheque event

Soundcheque Ltd recently invited GéNIA to play at one of their annual Christmas events. It was an unusual environment for a classical pianist – buzzing with rock and pop artists! GéNIA’s performance went down like a storm. She is very grateful to Yamaha Pianos who sponsored her performance by providing a beautiful keyboard.

 

‘It was the first time I played keys. I was a bit unsure about this at first, but the touch was so real and the sound was great. And, most importantly, it made me to connect with the audience in the most authentic way! They were amazing! I am now thinking of performing much more in London clubs’ says GéNIA.

 

GéNIA performed some of her most popular compositions including London-Paris and Mon Amore.

GéNIA Releases New Limited Edition EP – Dreams of Today Thoughts of Tomorrow

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.
