Elizaveta Ivanova, piano
Scarlatti: Three sonatas
Rakhmaninov: Two Moments Musicaux, op.16
Prokofiev: Sonata No.8 op.84 in B flat Major
Young Russian pianist Elizaveta Ivanova has a very eclectic taste: her repertoire ranges from XVIth century English harpsichord music to the contemporary just-written compositions. Her performance career brought her to the famous concert halls such as Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory, Salle Cortot (Paris), Berlin Philarmonie, Toronto Centre of the Arts and others. Elizaveta is a prize-winner of international and national competitions, including Piano Campus International Piano Competition in France in 2011, where she won the 1st Prize and two special prizes. Graduate of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory, class of professor Sergey Dorensky, she is currently doing her postgraduate study in the High School of Music in Hamburg with well-known Bach interpreter Evgeni Koroliov.
For her debut appearance at The National Concert Hall in Dublin she has chosen the compositions from two epochs that she particularly likes: Baroque era will be represented by three witty, imaginative Scarlatti sonatas that open the recital, followed by music from Elizaveta’s native country, Russia: masterpieces by young Rakhmaninov, two Moments Musicaux op.16, will be performed, and then the majestic Sonata No. 8 by Prokofiev will conclude the program.
