The Piano Quartet

The Piano Quartet

The Piano Quartet came out of the need by four pianists to sidestep the loneliness of the solo player, the solitary long hours of practicing and even the solitude of the stage performance. “This loneliness is something we grow up with but it does not mean we are loners as characters”, writes the creator of the project Musical Bridges, Dr. Galina Dimova-Georgieva. There are many examples of great pianists who sought the collaboration with fellow musicians in their career, Nicolas Economou’s pioneering collaboration “On Four Pianos” in 1983, being a case in point. Natalia Lezedova, Nina Ioannidou, Ivelina Ruseva  and Galina Dimova played at a concert during the Winter Music Festival 2017 in Paphos and decided to develop a program with predominantly six and eight hands works instead of the usual solos or duets. Three concerts came out of this idea and Musical Bridges is the third series.

The Paphos-based four pianists, originally come from different backgrounds (Cyprus, Greece, Bulgaria and Russia) and the program is compiled so as to reflect this diversity without neglecting the classical repertoire with works by Scriabin and Saint-Saëns. The most eminent Bulgarian composer Pancho Vladigerov is represented with two pieces – the emblematic Bulgarian Rhapsody Vardar and the lyrical Song. The virtuoso Sabre Dance by Aram Khachaturian and the enigmatic Elegy by Arno Babajanian will introduce the listener to the best Soviet Armenian music. A tribute to the genius of the Cypriot composer Nicolas Economou will be paid with a performance of his Three Pieces for Chick.

The Piano Quartet commissioned the Greek composer Dimitiris Tsoukas to arrange a selection of songs by Manos Hadjidakis for eight hands, which will be performed for the first time.

Galina Dimova, Natalia Lezedova, Nina Ioannidou & Ivelina Ruseva perform compositions by

Saint-Saëns, Scriabin, Lavignac, Vladigerov, Khachaturian, Babajanian, Hadjidakis, Piazzolla, Cornick, Economou for solo, four, six and eight hands.
