explores the rich, complete world of sound available to classic and romantic composers with their then-new pianos! Viviana performs with two, three, four or five pianos on stage, allowing the audience to immerse themselves in the music performed on instruments as strong and colourful as they were at the time when they inspired young classical and romantic composers to write their masterpieces. The pianos used in the performance are newly built “clones” of the favourite instruments of great composers, produced by the world’s most prolific modern fortepiano maker, Paul McNulty.
Viviana Sofronitsky has followed in the footsteps of her father Vladimir Sofronitsky, a distinguished Russian pianist. She earned a DMA from the Moscow Conservatory and received historical fortepiano and harpsichord performance degrees from the Royal Conservatory in Den Haag. She won prizes at the "Bach Tage Berlin" and "Musica Antiqua" competitions. Viviana Sofronitsky has recorded with “AVI”, ”ETCetera”, “Centaur“, “Suoni e colori”, “Globe”, “Pro Musica Camerata” (11 CD of complete Mozart concertos) and “Passacaille” lebels. Her current projects include recording Chopin and Liszt on romantic fortepiano. Russian-Canadian citizen Viviana Sofronitsky is based in Prague, from which she travels Europe to perform with her fortepianos.
