Irina Mejoueva, a Japan-based Russian pianist, always appears on stage with scores — but not because she can’t memorize the pieces she performs. “I am a performer. Since I am not a composer, the piece exists only in the score,” she remarks with a smile. Mejoueva looks at the score when she plays the piano, every time seeing it with new eyes. It’s a custom that seems to realize some kind of interaction or even spiritual contact with the great composers of the past.
Her upcoming recital in Mountain View Theater, features a program of the romanticism era, focusing on Chopin, Liszt, Debussy, Scriabin and Medtner, who were all pioneers in discovering the magic of the mighty instrument - piano.
On this special garthering with local music lovers in Shenzhen on the date of her performance, Mejoueva will be sharing her insight of the art of Piano playing.
This event is open to DS members and ticket holders of "Irina Mejoueva Piano Recital" on 20:00, June 23rd. Concert ticket holders please dial 0755-2165 4920 for free booking.
