March 4, 2022"Slavic Heart" Debut Solo Album out today! My first ever solo album is coming out tomorrow, March 4th, 2022, on the German label Solo Musica. With everything that is happening with Ukraine now it seems self-indulgent to get excited about this, but those of you who know my journey with this recording will know how significant it is for me to have it finally come “alive” and out into the world. I am excited, but also finally relieved that this recording, of works which I grew up with and feel have absolutely defined me as a pianist, survived all kinds of struggles and challenges and it is finally out there! I called it “Slavic Heart” because it stands for my own heart’s passion and love for the art of my slavic roots, and deep affection for these specific pieces which have accompanied me throughout my life since childhood.

Before you dismiss it with the rising hatred for many things Russian, remember that these composers have nothing to do with the current politics of the Russian president and, in fact, some of them suffered a very similar oppressor in their own times. Just like America is much more than Trump, Russia and Russian culture are not their current president and politics.

I hope you will enjoy this! It’s a product of lots of struggle, perseverance and love!
