Kreisleriana, one of Schumann's most famous and beautiful works, was composed in 1838. The name of the work comes from conductor Johannes Kreisler, a character from the works of E.T.A. Hoffmann. Schumann was greatly attracted by Kreisler's brilliant though paradoxical personality. In the eight pieces of this grand cycle with their dramatic contrasts (sometimes recalling characters of Florestan and Eusebius), like in many other works, Schumann is like a novelist, embodying the subtle nuances and shades of the man's mood, human passions and dreams. Kreisleriana is dedicated to Frederic Chopin. Dramatic contrasts are also characteristic for Fantasiestucke, op. 12 (1837). Des Abends (Evening), full of dreaminess, an embodiment of the languid side of Schumann's personality is followed by the agitated Aufschwung (Soaring) - Florestan appears on stage. Warum? (Why?) is a kind of philosophic meditation filled with tenderness - Eusebius comes into light again. Grillen (Whims) is full of humor. In der Nacht (In the night) is a mysterious and dramatic picture of the night, with a beautiful lyrical theme in the middle section. The piece was inspired by the legend about Hero and Leander. It is followed by a colorful Fabel (Fable), full of humor and bright contrasts. Traumeswirren (Dreamtwine) resembles a fantastic dance, gracious and elegant. Ende vom Lied (The end of the song) starts like a majestic march; a beautiful coda, profound and meditative yet emotional, becomes a kind of a "summing up" and concludes the whole cycle. Hyekyung Lee, born in Wonju, Korea in 1959 began to play piano at the age of 6. After winning several national music competitions, she had her first public concert with Seoul Sinfonietta Orchestra in 1970, and 4 years later became the soloist for the foundation concert of Korea Jeunesse Musicale Orchestra. Entering Folkwang Music College in Essen, Germany in 1975, she subsequently won the DAAD German government scholarship, the Folkwang Prize Competition and the nationwide German Music College Union Competition. Transferring to Muenchen Music College, she graduated with top marks in 1981. During 2 years of graduate school, she gave recitals, performed for various radio programs and earned the Bach Prize at Vianna da Motta International Competition in Lisbon. In 1984, Miss Lee returned home to teach at Chung-Ang University as a professor. Today, Hyekyung Lee is recognized as one of Korea’s outstanding musicians with her wide concert repertoires from baroque to contemporary. In 1984 she received the 'Critic's Prize' from the Korea Music Pen Club. In 1988 she was selected as 'Musician of the Year' by Dong-A music magazine. In 1993 she received the 'Korea Music Award' from the Korea Music Society. In 2004 she received the 'Seoul Music Prize' from the Korea Music Critic Association. Hyekyung Lee has performed at Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center in USA, in Sydney, Vienna, Moscow, Tokyo, Manila and with the Ulster Orchestra in Northern Ireland. In Korea she plays regularly with the Korea Philharmonic Orchestra and the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra. She has also performed chamber music with the Colorado String Quartet, the New Budapest String Quartet, flautists Patrick Galloy and Maxence Larrieu, trumpeter Stephen Burns, Korea’s top violinist Dong-Suk Kang and the Korean traditional drum quartet Samulnori, among many others. Miss Lee's career has also brought her in contact with many fine conductors, including Vakhtang Jordania, Bernhard Gueller, Barry Wordsworth, Sandro Suturello and Yan Pascal Tortelier.

P. I. Tchaikovsky: Dumka, The Seasons Op.37bis, Piano Sonata / Polina Fedotova

Collection:
Chamber Music
Subcollection: Piano

Polina Fedotova is an exceptionally interesting musician, whose concerts always attract true lovers of piano music. Her performances lack self-advertisement; they are marked with a wonderful sense of style and fine taste. Her brilliant virtuosity does not overshadow rich emotions and profoundness of her interpretations.
Music surrounded Miss Fedotova from the very first days. Her father - an outstanding conductor Victor Fedotov - worked at the Mariinsky Theater in St.Petersburg for almost fifty years, conducted ballet performances in the world's best theatres.
Polina studied at the St. Petersburg Conservatoire secondary school in the class of an eminent pedagogue V. Kunde. Later, she continued her education at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatoire under professor Yevgeni Malinin, a famous pianist; she went on to post graduate course with professor Valeri Kastelsky. Both professors brought her up in the traditions of romantic school of Henry Neighaus. The beautiful "singing" touche that critics always appreciated in Polina's performances is one of the most characteristic features of the Russian piano school.
At the age of 13, she became a prize-winner of the International youth competition Concertino-Prague (2nd prize). Later she participated in other prestigious competitions: Sergei Rachmaninov Competiton in Moscow, where she was awarded a diploma, and Musica di camera in Italy (3rd prize). In 1992, she was the winner of Frederic Chopin International Piano Competition in Palma di Mallorca (1st prize and Gold Medal). A Spanish newspaper "Actualle" highly appraised performances of the young competitor from Russia: "Polina Fe-dotova has the real power and strength of the Russian piano school, which allows her to transmit all the subtlety of dynamics of the great Polish composer".
Polina Fedotova's repertoire is wide: Tchaikovsky and Bach, Rachmaninov and Beethoven, Mozart and Rimsky-Korsakov, Scriabin, Prokofiev and Chopin, Schubert, Liszt, Ravel. Miss Fedotova likes monographic programs. While preparing to such programs, she plunges into the "inner world" of the composer’s soul, emotional and intellectual. Her interpretations reveal the secrets of the composers' creations, fascinating the listeners with their high expression and deep feelings.
Polina Fedotova's concert life is very active and interesting. She is a soloist of the Moscow Philharmony and gives concerts in Russia and abroad. In 1999, she was awarded the important title of the Honoured Artist of Russian Federation. Since 1996, Polina Fedotova teaches piano at the Moscow Conservatoire.
"Music educates the human soul, says Polina Fedotova, and I would be happy to know that beautiful ideals of art that are so dear to me since my early childhood, would be preserved in the creative activity of my pupils".

Alexander Mndoyants is a thinker by his musical nature; in his art, the romantic emotion and intellectual balance go hand in hand. In his playing, every nuance, every feeling is thought through, and the creative idea of the work is always inspired. Elena Dolinskaya Alexander Mndoyants was born in Yerevan. He began his music studies at the Special Music school under Yerevan Conservatoire. In 1960 - 68, he continued at the Moscow Special Music School. Later, he studied at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatoire in the class of Bella Davidovich (graduated in 1973). Jakob Flier said about Alexander Mndoyants: "He is an exceptionally gifted mu-sician. His interpretations are very attractive by their deepness and seriousness as well as his skills and mastery on the piano. In his playing, there is nothing that would seem unnatural or forced. He performs monumental forms and piano miniatures equally well. Another feature of his art is his high intellect and perfect taste". In 1976 - 78 he made his post graduate studies in Moscow Gnessin musical pedagogical institute (Russian Academy of music) under the guidance of professor A. Yokheles. In 1977, he became a prize winner at the International Van Cliburn Competition in USA. After that, Alexander Mndoyants started his concert activities. Over the past years he went to all parts of the former USSR with concerts, made his appearances almost in all capital cities of the former Union republics, as well as in Poland, Finland, Japan, France, Brasil, Israel, Taiwan, Portugal and others. He played with numerous well-known conductors such as F. Mansurov, V. Jordaniya, V. Gergiev and D. Kakhidze. Critics appraised the colorfulness of his interpretations and his bright temperament. He also played a lot of chamber music, with his partners having been such well-known musicians as D. Sitkovetsky, A. Korsakov, I. Gavrysh, A. Vinnitsky, M. Tol-pygo, A. Kamyshev, V. Yagling, K. Rodin, Tchaikovsky Quartet, Moscow Virtousi Quartet. He started his pedagogical activities in 1979 at the Central Music School under Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatoire. Since 1990, he also works at the Conservatoire itself (since 2004 he is a professor). Since 2002, he is also a professor at the Maimonid State Classic Academy. Among his pupils, there are more than 30 prize winners of different international and national competitions; many of them has become famous concert pianists. Alexander Tchaikovsky wrote about him in the beginning of the 90-s: "Mndoyants is truly one of the best pedagogues in Russia; he really deserves his reputation of a 'perfectionist', and he is perhaps almost unrivalled in his generation of piano pedagogues who might develop the individuality of young talents". He served as jury member and chairman of jury in various international and national competitions. He made his TV appearance in different cities of the country. The recordings made by A. Mndoyants at the All-Union Radio have invariably been highly appraised by the Artistic Council and are frequently broadcast.

Hailed by critics as "a phenomenal rising star," "a female reincarnation of Liszt," and "a piano lioness," Anna Shelest (Polusmiak) is an international award-winning pianist who has thrilled audiences throughout the world with her sincere and compelling interpretations. Born in Kharkov, Ukraine, Anna began her piano studies at the age of six. She attended the Kharkov Special Music School for Gifted Children, where she was a student of Gary Gelfgat and later of Sergei Polusmiak. At the age of eleven she performed at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris as the youngest prize winner of the Milosz Magin International Piano Competition. In 1998, Anna's family moved to the United States, and she continued her studies with Sergei Polusmiak at Northern Kentucky University, where she was a recipient of numerous scholarships and awards, including the Corbett Scholarship, the Regents Award, and recognition as an Outstanding Senior in the College of Arts and Sciences. Anna made her orchestral debut with the Kharkov Symphony Orchestra at the age of twelve, playing Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 1. Since then she has been a soloist with some of the world's most renowned orchestras-such as the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, the St. Petersburg State Academic Philharmonic Orchestra, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra. Other appearances include the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra, the Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestra, the Lugansk Philharmonic, the Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra, the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra, the San Francisco Russian Chamber Orchestra, the Minnesota Sinfonia, and the Jefferson Symphony Orchestra.

The Louisiana International Piano Competition, LIPC, was founded in 2004 by a group in Alexandria, Louisiana, USA, for the purpose of offering selected young concert artists an opportunity to participate in a new venture; introducing audiences in the central part of Louisiana to the highest caliber performers of classical piano literature. Along with Artistic Director, Nikita Fitenko, I am pleased to introduce the Grand Prize winner of our inaugural festival, Anna Shelest (Polusmiak) from Ukraine. This initial LIPC event was held October 10-16, 2005, less than two months after hurricanes Katrina and Rita ravaged our state and our people. The spectacular efforts of our original 27 concert artists was testament to the kind of survival skills all performing artists must possess in order to be successful. The example of these young talented pianists, representing 19 countries served to invigorate our lives, reminding us of what is truly good in our ever-changing world. Richard Gwartney, Executive Director, LIPC.
