Sol-ETUDES

A Eurythmy Recital

PROGRAM 

 

This evening program displays musical virtuosity rendered visible through eurythmy, an art of movement choreographed from the musical score. 

Sol - ETUDES is a recital which reinvents the dynamics of a classical Trio Ensemble. 

From Brahms to Auerbach, Piazzolla to Wiprud and Stanhope, a juxtaposition of Romantic and Contemporary solos, duos and trios also features a world premiere by cellist and composer Georgy Gusev.

Theodore Wiprud - El Jaleo

Laureate of numerous national competitions, Azer Damirov is a recipient of the Russian Ministry of Culture's Stipend. Winner of the American Protégé International Competition of Romantic Music, he first performed at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in 2012. 

 

Azer began his musical studies at eight years old. He was accepted into the Tchaikovsky Moscow State Conservatory six years later, in the class of Professor Maria Keselman. Graduated in 2007, he went on to receive a Bachelor of Music from Boyer College, Temple University (class of Professor Schmieder), completed his Master’s (2013) and is now pursuing a Doctoral degree in Music Performance. 

 

Recognition of excellence include the 14th Andrea Postacchini International Violin Competition Proze, Fermo, Italy (2007) and the iPalpiti Prize, granted by iPalpiti Festival of International Laureates, Los Angeles, of which he is a member since since 2009 and whose performance venues include the Kimmel Center, Carnegie Hall, and Los Angeles Halls. Azer has participated in Festivals and Masterclasses in Dortmund, Germany, in the Britten-Pearce Orchestra, Great Britain, and in the Volga Regional Young Symphony Festival.

 

He formed the Philadelphia-based Trio Amaranth in 2014. 

Johannes Brahms - Sonata No. 3

"Amazed by his talent, musicality and technique! Georgy is a rare example of a musician who manages to connect knowledge and respect for musical tradition with his own creativity and gorgeous talent. Certainly he’s one of the most intriguing young musicians that we must respect as important for the culture’s future." - Mstislav Rostropovich

 

A graduate of the famed Moscow Tchaikovsky State Conservatory and Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome, Georgy performed at major festival and venues worldwide along/and with world-renowned musicians, such as Natalia Gutman, Valery Gergiev, Vladimir Spivakov, Yuri Bashmet, Giovanni Sollima, Enrico Dindo, Rocco Filippini, Andrey Gavrilov, Eliso Virsaladze, Boris Andrianov. 


In 2011, in Moscow, Georgy founded GOSH Projects - a nonprofit organisation, whose task is to open the boundaries of Russian Federation for the comprehensive cultural exchange between Russian and foreign artists. He is also a founder of the International Music Festival “Masters of Music” held each year in Moscow since 2013. 


In 2016 Georgy moved to Los Angeles in order to work on development of his musical multimedia projects, which he himself calls as a "Musical theater of the future". In the past year he had a chance to work with multi Grammy Awards winning composers, producers and performers such as Randy Jackson, Walter Afanasieff, Kenny G, Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds and others. 

Georgy Gusev - Folia Orthodox

Recognized for her compelling intensity and lustrous tone, French pianist Brigitte Armenier has had a most unusual path. A graduate of the Conservatoire de Musique in Avignon, France, she studied there from 6 to 16 years old. She then stopped playing entirely for the next twenty years. 


It is thanks to the understanding she developed working with Biodynamic Agriculture with her husband Philippe Armenier on their vineyard Domaine de Marcoux, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, that she found her way back to music. Autodidact since then, she recorded a CD of solo piano repertoire, Analogos: Between Music and Biodynamic Agriculture which includes a 25 page written interview. 


She lives in California since 2001 where her husband is the main Biodynamic consultant on the West Coast. Collaborations with her daughter Gabrielle include a lecture-performance at Harvard Divinity School with Juilliard Principal Conductor Murray Colosimo; also in their common repertoire are Liszt's Les Annees de Pelerinage, a selection from his masterwork suite, which will be given at the Lincoln Theater, Napa, in April 2018.
