I am a concert pianist with a passion for bringing classical music closer to the audience through a special kind of conversation concert under the name The Art of Listening. Think of it as a guided tour of classical masterworks, right in your home!

The key is having a small audience and an intimate setting where everyone can feel invited to participate with their thoughts, visions, and questions, no matter how silly or bold. I do not prepare a text that I read from, nor do I learn a lecture by heart. I ask questions, and invite the audience to listen again and more closely in order to find their own answers. The process is much more interesting and rewarding than just getting the finished information served.

I feel classical music often gets mystified as something elitist and hard to understand. And yes, it is great and exalted, but it should not be exclusive, on the contrary! This music was written by humans, for humans, therefore everyone is invited to participate in it. This does not mean we need to bring it down from its pedestal and cheapen it. By struggling to understand it and listen ever more closely to its nuances and complexities, we become part of something greater than ourselves, and we allow the music to elevate our spirit.

A little bit about me:
I was hailed by New York Concert Review for “deep, genuine musicianship and an outstanding technique” at my solo Carnegie Hall debut recital presented by New York Concert Artists. I was a prize winner at multiple international piano competitions in Europe. I have recorded a CD "Tribute to Haydn" and my performance has been aired on WQXR. I studied at the Mozarteum in Austria, at Mannes College in New York, and I am currently working towards a doctorate in music at the CUNY Graduate Center where I have had the privilege of taking piano lessons with Richard Goode.
