Have you seen GéNIA’s New Album Trailer?

If you haven’t seen it already, GéNIA’s latest trailer showcases three original compositions on her second EP: Sweet Memories, Mon Amour, and London-Paris. Even if you’ve heard the songs before, the video gives you a great view of GéNIA’s playing that you simply couldn’t get live.

The album is inspired by a cup of coffee, and this is perhaps most apparent on the first of the three tracks, Sweet Memories. It evokes a sense of nostalgia and calm, a sense that is familiar to all of us who like to sit in cafés and to watch the world go by. The second piece, Mon Amour, is slower and filled with more melancholy than the first, reminding us of how it feels to reminisce upon the past, and perhaps even upon what we have lost. This changes as we reach London-Paris; GéNIA’s music has departed from reflection and looks towards the future. It brings a sense of anticipation and possibility; the increase in tempo and dynamics also creating the feeling of the intent and purpose that comes with travel.

Also worth your attention: if you listen closely, you can hear GéNIA conjure up the effect of a chorus during London-Paris – the piano really starts to sound a little like the human voice!

Caffè Nero plays GéNIA’s new music

As part of an ongoing collaboration and desire to promote new musical talent, coffee house chain Caffè Nero have begun airing pieces by GéNIA, composer and pianist, from her latest album ‘Dreams of Today, Thoughts of Tomorrow Vol.2’. Due to the popularity of GéNIA’s compositions Caffè Nero added ‘Mon Amour’, ‘Happy Planet’, ‘Departure’ and ‘Autumn Blues’ to their playlist worldwide in March 2015.

Caffè Nero and GéNIA have collaborated in the past, with GèNIA being named their classical artist of the month in January 2015 while jointly launching the very first classical concerts at Heathrow Airport.

GéNIA’s EP ‘Dreams of Today, Thoughts of Tomorrow Vol.2’ was inspired by the idea of a cup of coffee, a daily ritual for many, allowing them to think about their plans for the future or reminisce over their past, which suits the ambience of Caffè Nero coffee houses.

GéNIA Releases New EP ‘Dreams of Today, Thoughts of Tomorrow Vol.2′

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.
