Born in 1873, composer Sergei Rachmaninoff was not only one of the greatest pianists in history. While his Piano Concertos are considered amongst the most beloved by any composer, Rachmaninoff’s solo piano music features several hours of renowned works ranging from his two piano sonatas, 24 Preludes, and 17 Etudes Tableaux to his own transcriptions, variations on themes by other composers, and much much more.
RACHMANINOFF AT 150 most likely is the first time in Florida that all solo piano works by the great composer can be heard in concert – and by one of today’s most electrifying young pianists no less.
ABOUT ASIYA KOREPANOVA
Born to a musical family in Russia, Miss Korepanova made her orchestral debut at the age of nine with Mozart’s Concerto No. 8, including her own newly-composed cadenza. A musical prodigy, Korepanova’s early musical awards include the Russian Federation’s President Award for “Exceptional Achievement in the Arts,” and in 2012 won the Gold Medal at the Nina Wideman International Piano Competition.
Since immigrating to the U.S. in 2012, Korepanova has garnered national attention with performances at the Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall, the Bargemusic Series, the Phillips Collection, the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Series, the Miami International Piano Festival, and many others. She has been featured on CNN, NPR stations, WFMT, and WETA.
This season, in addition to being featured in the six recitals in Miami devoted to the complete solo piano works of Rachmaninoff, she will also celebrate the premiere of her latest transcription of Tchaikovsky’s epic Manfred Symphony, and also release scores of her compositions: the Poéme for alto saxophone and piano, and ‘Con Brio’ for two pianos, as well as solo piano transcriptions of works by Chopin, Schumann, Amy Beach, Faure, Mussorgsky, Franck, and Bach.
