  • (1888PressRelease) May 07, 2021 - ‘Jean’ by GéNIA

    Release Date: 7 May 2021

    Label: GéNIA MUSIC

    Genre: Classical-Crossover; Classical

    Solo Piano
    The slightly murky feeling of ‘Jean’, a peaceful piano composition, is a fond memory of the French child, the son of GéNIA’s friends, who had a very playful, slightly delicate and creative nature; he played the piano, built sand-castles, read books and even cooked, but his big sad eyes always had that intense and inquisitive look. This composition is the second piece in the series ‘Voyages Français’, and is dedicated to that special friendship.

    The EP ‘Voyages Français’ was inspired by GéNIA‘s frequent journeys to her beloved France. France was the country where GéNIA first started to compose, influenced by the nature, art, local food and, of course, wonderful people who she met on her journeys. ‘Voyages Français’ EP is dedicated to 5 different experiences, memories of which remained with the composer throughout her life.

    The composition was recorded on GéNIA's Steinway Grand Piano at her home studio and produced by her. Mastering of the track was done at AIR Mastering Studios, London. The world-wide release date is 7th May 2021.

    About GéNIA
    Described by The Times as “an outstanding musician”, an enigma of the music world, Russian-born concert pianist turned composer-yogi, GéNIA, recently enjoyed success with her new compositions by releasing her latest solo piano album ‘Babylon’ alongside several sold-out London shows, whilst her music enjoyed placements in the critically acclaimed BBC America TV Series ‘Killing Eve” (starring Sandra Oh) and well-known British ITV Series ’Cold Feet”.

    GéNIA’s music compositions can be heard on Classic FM, Scala Radio, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3, BBC London Radio 94.9, BBC World Service. London News TV Channel, Talk Radio, BBC Wales Radio, BBC Radio Bristol, to name just a few, as well as Caffé Nero branches worldwide (as GéNIA is Caffé Nero’s featured classical artist) and also in various TV series.

    Described by Gramophone magazine as “a charismatic pianist”, GéNIA is known for her enthralling stage presence. She comes from a distinguished line of Russian pianists and was taught by her great-grandmother, the renowned pedagogue Regina Horowitz, the sister of pianist Vladimir Horowitz. GéNIA made her London debut as a concert pianist in the Park Lane Group Young Artist Series, which was followed by concert tours in the UK, Europe and USA. London venues include Wigmore Hall, Barbican, Southbank Centre, Olympia, Kings Place, St. John’s Smith Square and St. Martin in the Fields.

    As a performing artist GéNIA made a controversial and pioneering move away from the classical concert platform for a number of years. As an innovative composer and performer who crossed over into the world of pop music, she has collaborated with an eclectic range of artists, producers and composers including Gabriel Prokofiev, Howard Skempton, the Brodsky Quartet, Andy Sheppard, Jason Yarde, multi-Grammy nominated record producer Chris Craker, the double BAFTA award winner and six-time Emmy nominee sound engineer Nigel Heath, as well as dance producers Germ, Vex'd, Kreepa and The Early Man.

    Breaking classical music traditions, GéNIA’s concerts often take the form of a show, rather than a classical concert, as she loves to connect with her audience, making the experience very personal to them.
