  • (1888PressRelease) April 15, 2014 - Russian virtuoso pianist and composer GéNIA is pleased to announce the release of her new Limited Edition EP, "Dreams of Today, Thoughts of Tomorrow" on 28th March 2014. This EP contains five piano solo compositions, and is GéNIA's debut album as a composer.

    Publicly known as a classical concert pianist, GéNIA was challenged by the Director of Caffè Nero, Pablo Ettinger who heard GéNIA's improvisations, to compose something that customers in his Caffè would like to listen to. "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.

    Composed mainly in Paris, whilst GéNIA took a sabbatical in 2013, it is influenced by Parisian culture and the lifestyle. GéNIA's frequent trips between London and Paris provided the inspiration for a track entitled 'London - Paris' and was composed on the Eurostar.

    "Coffee with Milk', 'Sweet Memories', 'Last Dance', 'London- Paris' and 'Past Love' have already been performed in various concert halls in London and on BBC London Radio, where GéNIA is a frequent guest, as well as in all the branches of Caffé Nero in the UK.

    GèNIA will be playing a series of concerts in support of the EP throughout forthcoming months. The next date is 25 April 2014 at the Wathern Hall, London.

    About GéNIA
    Described by The Times as 'an outstanding musician' and Gramophone as 'a charismatic pianist', Russian virtuoso pianist and composer GéNIA has a wide ranging repertoire and an enthralling stage presence.

    GéNIA comes from a distinguished line of Russian pianists and was taught by her great-grandmother, the renowned pianist Regina Horowitz and later by Sergei Yushkevitch at the Kharkov Institute of Arts, Ukraine. GéNIA went on to study in London with Professor Joan Havill at the Guildhall School of Music and with Professor Douglas Finch at Trinity College of Music. GéNIA is the founder of both the GéNIA MUSIC Piano School in London and Piano-Yoga® - a multi-dimensional method of piano playing, performing and teaching that Yoga & Health Magazine described as 'The first entirely new piano technique to emerge in over 50 years.' GéNIA regularly arranges master-classes, lectures and retreats based on this holistic approach and her Piano-Yoga® book "Transform your hands: A complete ten week course of piano exercises" was published in 2009.

    GéNIA made her London debut in the Park Lane Group Young Artist Series which was followed by concert tours in the UK, Europe and USA. Recent London performance venues include the Wigmore Hall, Barbican, Southbank Centre, Olympia, Kings Place and St Martin in the Fields. GéNIA features as a soloist on the soundtracks of award-winning films "Paradise Grove" and "Bookcruncher" and her recordings and live interviews are regularly broadcast on BBC TV and Radio.

    GéNIA often gives private performances at corporate parties, luxury cruise liners and fashion houses, such as performing at the launch party for Stolichanaya Vodka at Harvey Nichols and hosting a musical dinner at London's Hurlingham Club in March 2014.

    Always championing new music, GéNIA has received critical acclaim for her live performances and contemporary classical recitals. She regularly commissions new works and enjoys expanding the potential of the piano through collaborations with an eclectic range of artists and composers.

    GéNIA is represented by Tanya Cracknell Music Management.
