*********ANNOUNCING A NEW ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE*********
As many of you know, The Drozdoff Society has a mission to bring forth the compositions of Vladimir N. Drozdoff––in publication, performance, and pedagogy––and to support the careers of the people who help us in our mission. Our roster of Artists-in-Residence has grown over the years. To date:
Mark S. Doss | voice
Mike Ford | publication, preservation
Hanna Golodinskii | voice
Vyacheslav Gryaznov | piano, publication, composition, recording
Karen Hakobyan | composition, piano, pedagogy
Daria Kiseleva | piano
Nicolas Namoradze | composition, piano, pedagogy
Reed Tetzloff | piano, writing
Today, it gives me and George Borisov great pleasure to add Asiya Korepanova to our family of Artists in Residence. Asiya has taken an independent interest in Drozdoff's works, and recorded a performance of his Poème de la jeunesse last year in her YouTube series, MIDNIGHT PIECES; it is posted below for you to hear. #MidnightPieces
Asiya a phenomenal musician, concert pianist, and human being. As with all the Artists-in-Residence whom The Drozdoff Society works with and supports, she is committed to artistic integrity, to working with and supporting her fellow musicians, and is always striving to do more and do better.
Asiya Korepanova is a transcriber whose Rachmaninoff Cello Sonata transcription invites requests for copies all the time. She is premiering another new transcription in her July 7 performance for Pegasus: The Orchestra. She is tireless in her creativity, and we welcome Asiya with open arms and best wishes.
