Pianist Asiya Korepanova in Concert
This is a past event.
Saturday, January 27 at 7:30pm
WPAC - Wertheim Performing Arts Center, Concert Hall
10910 SW 17th St., Miami, FL 33199
The only pianist currently performing Liszt's 24 Etudes as a single program and one of few to tout a concerto list that features over 60 works, Asiya Korepanova is a pianistic powerhouse, who is also highly recognized for her work as a transcriber, composer, visual artist, and poet, reflecting her uncompromising dedication to the arts.
Asiya’s historic solo piano transcriptions of Richard Strauss’ 'Ein Heldenleben', Rachmaninoff's Cello Sonata, Mussorgsky's 'Songs and Dances of Death', and many others, have given her a place among today’s formidable transcribers.
She creates a series of multimedia projects featuring original poetry and visual art that serve as an interpretive commentary to each movement in a particular cycle of piano works. Examples include Liszt’s Transcendental Etudes, Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, Tchaikovsky’s 18 Morceaux, Op. 72, and Mussorgsky's 'Pictures at an Exhibition'.
Most recently, Asiya premiered her latest piano quintet work 'I marvel at the sky', commissioned by the Third Dimension Music Festival in Astoria, OR, and published the score of her Rachmaninoff Cello sonata transcription. Her Concerto for Alto Saxophone and Piano, Poéme, was released in its premiere recording, performed by Thomas Giles and Liana Pailodze Harron.
