What is a main luck for a composer? In my opinion, this is when your music is played by amazing musicians, and they take what you have done to a completely different level, unimaginable for you! On February 13, along with the music by Beethoven, Schumann and Rachmaninov, there also will be a world premiere of my piece for cello and piano called “Unwinding the Memory’s Thread”. This is about my current feeling of me, who was born and raised in Russia. And the performers are exactly what you can only dream of! Andrey Tchekmazov https://www.andreytchekmazov.com/ and Irina Nuzova https://irinanuzova.com/ are incredible in their talent, creative potential, and ability to decode deeply the composer’s style. I will be thrilled to see you there!

Andrey Tchekmazov and Irina Nuzova met at the famous Gnessin School in Moscow when they were teenagers. They immigrated to the US in 1992 where both continued their studies at Juilliard. The duo successfully performed in the US and in 2001 won first prize at the Vittorio Gui International Chamber Music Competition in Florence, Italy, followed by the top prize and Premio della Critica at the Premio Trio di Trieste Competition also in Italy.After 20 years Andrey and Irina are delighted to reunite for this special event presenting traditional cello-piano repertoire – Beethoven, Schumann, and Rachmaninov, interspersed with gems of the recently discovered early 20th-century African American composer William Grant Still, as well as living composers – Kevin Puts and Margarita Zelenaia.

…Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life… – Plato
