Playing with an iPad.
Last couple of years I was frequently thinking about getting an iPad as an alternative for the music stand.
In this November I finally got it, together with a stand and a pedal.

From now on, officially, I have to declare that it's much better then a standart music stand,
1- it doesn't cover you from the audience at all, it's a small screen, yet clear enough to see the score well.
2- page turning with a special pedal is a great thing, it took me 1 performance to completely get used to it. It even has lights on it, in case you are performing in the darkness.
3- you don't depend on loosing your scores in a trip.
4- you can easily take pics of the score, and it'll be automatically transformed into an e-score, where you can make and erase any notes, writing with your finger like with a pencil.

Don't worry about the battery of a pedal- it's two simple AA batteries and they last for a long time.
To get a holder I would also advice to buy a simple music stand, take off a scores holder, and get an adjustable holder for an iPad (avilable in any music shops or online) and just install it on the stand.

Yes, it is very nice to hold a nice score in hands, but I believe all artists should choose the way they perform at their best, and iPad might help well for that.

Dear friends, from now on I'll write my monthly blog and also in a month I'll start to upload my LIVE performances to iTunes, 1 track every month, available for download! Stay tuned!

Why did I decide to organize a concert series?

I have been asked frequently why I wanted to do it. The concert calendar in Vienna is already filled to the brim, I am only 23, and, besides, I have very much keeping me quite busy with my own career…

But the experience of organizing a series has proven invaluable in so many respects.

First, simply to understand how to build a concert from the inside-out has taught me so much about my industry and how to move forward within it. With only a modest budget, we managed to organize 13 evenings in the Bank Austria Salon, with two concerts each night, also showcasing art exhibitions and collaborative performance art during the music.

I had a fantastic lineup of artists throughout the season. And as an artist, I also understand how demanding we artists can be, and how hard the work of an artistic director is. But even with a team of wonderful colleagues, it can be challenging to account for the unique needs of each individual performer.

My biggest lesson from all this is that the simpler and easier you are to work with, the more others will want to work with you. This is what our colleagues and artistic organizers appreciate.

But I did not organize this series only to learn how to improve my career. It represents an artistic mission, as well.

The music scene in Vienna remains outdated. The big halls rotate through only a small roster of blue-chip artists, and the programs are still quite conservative and repetitive. People come to concerts, sit, snore, sneeze, cough, have a hurried and overpriced drink in a hurry in the intermission, leave immediately after it ends, and then repeat the ritual.

I am inspired to create a new and innovative concept.

Not only will our concertgoers experience great and profound music-making, but they will experience it in a wholly different context. Our concerts are social occasions, where people come together to spend time with each other along with the music itself. So the intermission is longer, and the hall and reception remain open after the main concert has ended, transforming into a lounge. With a more intimate and relaxed jazz or pop concert, people can continue socializing together over refreshments and more music, long after a traditional hall would have kicked them out into separate groups and forced them to find another way to continue their Friday night. And this makes the evening more accessible to those who are not experienced classical music concertgoers, as well.

In the end, we listen to great music because we want to, not because we have to. Not because some huge and expensive PR campaign told us to get excited about an average performer, not because all your friends and neighbors are going, and not because you have to show up to the benediction.

And that is why I have organized Friday Nights with Yury Revich.

We are looking for new cooperations and partners, and I hope to welcome you in our 2016 season!

Dear friends,
finally being on vacation, I would like to spend some time and tell you about some new things which happend recently and are going to happen.
in last year I recorded 6 albums, which include
Russian Soul for ARS
Romberg Concerto for violin and orchestra no.3 and Solo violin sonata no.3 for Sony
Romberg Solo violin sonatas for Sony
Anton Garcia Abril Album, on which I perform his Fanatasy for violin and piano.
and two more exciting Albums to be released in Autumn
with a wonderful pianist Donka Angatscheva, presenting Mozart G-dur sonata, Magic Flute Fantasy by Sarasate on the Mozart themes and other pieces.
and Steps Through The Centuries for Odradek Records,
the cd with special guests lika Alejandro Pico-Leonis, Olga Filippova, Bibana Nwobilo.
This is the album which is mixing styles, times, genres.
It shows violin as a multifunctional instrument, with combination with piano, cembalo and voice, then performing actual opera fantasies and schubert songs, and going straight to the contermporary and ultra contemporary music.
also exciting projects like Tchaikovsky Concerto in Teatro alla Scala on the 15th of September (following my Tchaikovsky violin concerto debut in Zurich Tonhalle in past season), Concerts in USA, debut Mexico, Europe.
in spring 2014 I will have my first UK appearance-performance in the Cadogan Hall in London.
and a wonderful piece- Carnival of Animals in Moscow, with great artists and Gerard Depardieu reading the text.
also I am going to present a new Crossover Project in 2014. the news and updates TBA.
MOVIE debut.
this summer I filmed a Short Movie on my own script and I also took part as an actor there.
The film director were me, Wen Liu, Yuko Ichikawa and wonderful actors like Lilian Naumann and Julia Lowack, and pianist Valentina Babor.
the movie is on the editing in the Beijing right now, looking forward to see the result!
not forgetting about my coming exciting master studies in Konservatorium Wien with Maestro Pavel Vernikov.
thank you for all your support and thank you OnePoint.FM
warm regards
