WildKat PR is delighted to welcome composer-pianist Alina K to our portfolio of artists.

Lithuanian-born Alina K came to London with the intention of developing and building on her piano playing skills, and with a dream that one day she might perhaps be able to turn her passion for music into a full-time career. Having recognised her talent early on, Alina K’s friends and family encouraged her to continue with her piano playing, but since she was working full-time in high-end retail concessions, she found very little time to devote to her true passion. However, encouraged by a close friend to compose her own music, Alina K discovered that she had the ability to compose, and this re-ignited her passion and her determination.

After a chance meeting in London with the founder of Vancouver Fashion Week who heard her music, Alina K was twice invited to perform at the opening ceremony of this prestigious event in Canada. With fashion being her second passion, she was delighted to accept this invitation and even more so when, on both occasions, she was unexpectedly asked to model on the catwalk for leading fashion designers.

Encouraged by this and championed and supported by friends and esteemed names across the music industry who recognised the immense potential that she had, Alina K threw herself into composing her own breathtakingly beautiful and emotionally engaging music. With the right people behind her, she became more determined than ever to pursue her dream of making music her full time occupation and of having her compositions used in films and on television. With this in mind, in early 2017 she made the brave and bold decision to leave her full-time day job in order to devote more time to her music.

The risk paid off because in February 2018, Alina K will release her debut EP ‘Awakening’, comprising four original tracks recorded in Studio Two at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios in North West London. With her refreshingly edgy, stylish demeanour and engaging personality, Alina K really is set to breathe fresh air into the contemporary music world with the launch of her groundbreaking debut EP.

WildKat PR is very pleased to be working with composer and pianist Andrew James Johnson on his upcoming album release and concert, following the launch of his new brand.

Olivia Brown, Head of Creative Strategy and Marketing, says: “Working alongside our in-house design team classicalmusicdesign, WildKat has created a brand and visual identity for Andrew that truly represents both his bold, friendly personality and his enchanting yet sensitive compositions. We’re very much looking forward to continuing our collaboration, and sharing Andrew’s debut album with the press and music industry.”

Andrew is a composer and pianist who grew up in Birmingham, England, and despite having no formal training on the piano in his childhood, immersed himself in the works of Beethoven, Schumann and Chopin. After his parents agreed to pay for lessons, Andrew’s eagerness and innate musicality developed rapidly into a passion for piano performance, before he moved onto composition.

Andrew began to draw upon a combination of classical training and contemporary influences, completing a BA in Composition at the London College of Music.  His compositional style combines rich harmonic language with expansive pianistic techniques, revealing the influence of the Romantic-era composers that so inspired him in his youth.

In the years that followed his graduation from the LCM, Andrew undertook commissions for film, television and theatre. Credits include televised advertisements for HSBC and Timotei. Andrew’s compositions take inspiration from everyday life, and his creative process makes use of the full tonal range of the keyboard, drawing on influences from his role models Max Richter and Philip Glass.

We are thrilled to be working with Andrew on his debut album release ‘Winter’s Heart’, due for release in November 2017.

Welcoming back pianist Dmitry Masleev

WildKat PR is delighted to welcome back pianist Dmitry Masleev, the triumphant winner of the International Tchaikovsky Competition (2015).

In 2016, WildKat had the opportunity to support Dmitry Masleev during his successful European tour, including a great debut with the Münchner Symphoniker in Munich and a remarkable appearance at the Klavierfestival Ruhr, which was followed by invitations from the Rheingau, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Bad Kissingen festivals. Dmitry Masleev was called a pianist of “virtuoso brilliance” (The Financial Times), possessing “musicality of metaphysical proportions” (Neue Musikzeitung).

© 2017 Dmitry Masleev

© 2017 Dmitry Masleev

2017 began for Masleev with a highly anticipated Carnegie Hall début recital where he performed a “fiercely demanding” programme of Scarlatti, Beethoven, Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff, and Liszt, which cemented his reputation internationally as “one of the genuinely great pianists of his generation” (New York City Informer).

WildKat is very happy to support Dmitry Masleev for his next great debut: on March 11th Dmitry Masleev will perform Rachmaninoff’s Variations on the Theme of Paganini at the Konzerthaus Berlin with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra and Robert Trevino. Keep checking the WildKat PR blog for updates!
