WildKat PR is excited to introduce our newest client, Marina Baranova, a Ukrainian pianist and composer living in Germany.
“She sat down at the piano and played. With her right hand she held a melody, harmonically supported from the left. She was three and couldn’t read music” remembered Marinas Parents, both piano teachers.
Since her very first contact with a piano at the age of 3, Marina has won a long list of international prizes all over Europe. Her debut album Marina Baranova Plays Schumann was enthusiastically applauded by the press, who hailed her as an “excellent interpreter of Schumann”. She is also active as a composer – her last CD Firebird, recorded together with Murat Coşkun, contains only original compositions for oriental percussion and piano.
Marina is currently working on her next CD Hypersuites. The programme will be based on the graceful music of the Baroque period providing a foundation for the brilliant improvisations and deeply personal reinterpretations which Marina specialises in.
