  • Celebrity Soft Spot - Irina Vasilieva /By Rosalind Appleby | Cappuccino Concerts
    I came to Australia it was disappointing to see extremely talented gifted musicians go interstate or abroad to perform I come from Moscow a city that has internationally acclaimed and also local amazing musicians giving recitals so often it is normal to have a few concerts in oneday and go from one to another Here I feel forgive me for being snobby that there is not muchjoy and excitement of listening to classical music The cost and to a lesser extent the programming has detracted from the music being available to the broader community It seemed to me that here in Perth attending a concert was only a privilege and an elitist spastime So I love coffee and I love classical music it was suggested by my then husband to call our series Cappuccino Concerts Why not Here we go celebrating 5 years of bringing classical music to people of all walks of life and it is very rewarding Every time I see people smiling and their happy faces I know I will keep going There are very few female artistic directors in Perth You have a unique voice as a woman and with an international perspective What do you think the people of Perth are looking for in a concert experience I think they need more exposure and opportunity to enjoy talented Australian musicians performing at various venues What type of artists do you have performing I give the priority to local performers usually Perth based but also performers from other states You have a soft spot for chamber music what is the appeal of this repertoire I love chamber music As a performer I learn a lot when playing with other musicians in an ensemble An intimate setting for both musicians and the audience brings people together Johann Wolfgang von Goethedescribed chamber music specifically string quartet music as four rational people conversing It is something that we are losing communication The idea of composing music that could be played at home has been largely abandoned What do we usually have at home TV iPads computers it all takes away from humans interacting with each other even in a home setting The role of chamber music in society has changed profoundly in the last 50 years So the idea is to bring people together in an intimate setting and encourage them to interact with each other Chamber music can do that with a little bit of wine added to the mix You grew up in Russia are opportunities for women musicians greater there than in Australia I left Russia many years ago so I can t say what the situation is like thereat the moment I can only judge from how I grew up And I was brought up mainly among remarkable women who inspired me they were scientists musicians physicists There were politics of course but I grew up with womenbeing equally important in their profession as men At what age did you start learning piano When did

  • Stefan Cassomenos - 'The Piano Man' | Cappuccino Concerts
    Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra Stefan was Composer in Residence at Creative Universe s Creative Innovation Conference from 2010 2012 In 2010 as part of his role as Composer in Residence he was commissioned to write his Third Piano Concerto which he led and directed from the keyboard at its Melbourne Recital Centre premiere with musicians from the Australian National Academy of Music In 2012 he was awarded the Lyrebird Music Society s Annual Commission and had his works premiered by the Curro Quartet Orchestra 21 and the Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Choir His Double Violin Concerto was recently performed at Federation Square by an orchestra of musicians from the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra Victoria soloists Monica and Sarah Curro and conducted by Fabian Russell But with so many accolades and achievements I had to ask Stefan what s been the highlight of his career for him thus far Performing Prokofiev s Third Piano Concerto with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra as part of the finals of the Vlassenko competition is definitely a professional highlight I m 28 years old and I have to say that thinking back there are occasionally performances that are very special where the audience is totally synchronised emotionally with the music I m performing it s like the stars align and everything seems to be perfect It doesn t happen all that often but for me those are the best highlights The Prokofiev Concerto with Queensland Symphony Orchestra was one of them but there have been others some at festivals some at performances in private homes Stefan draws on many famous composers for inspiration He loves the symphonies of Mahler Brahms and Beethoven the solo piano music of Rachmaninoff the choral music of Bach and Faure and virtually everything by Prokofiev Adams Ligeti and Schubert Yet he also listens to several Greek composers as well as Greek Americans and Greek Australians Nikos Skalkottas is one of Greece s most interesting composers I am very drawn to his work I also love the music of Zambetas very much his music always puts a smile on my face As a young man he grew up listening to Greek music alongside his parents and he says that the music of his heritage has affected his tastes and influenced his understanding of music Greek music is strongly bound to the folk tradition and classical music from all over Europe has its origins in folk music particularly the spirit of the dance As a performer I am grateful for having Greek music early in my life it was somewhat like a window into the European psyche It also influenced the music that I ve written not necessarily by choice but certainly you can hear in my music that my harmonic and rhythmic language is often driven by the memory of the music I grew up listening to I ve performed in Greece a couple of times he says I gave a concert in Athens at the University when
