Tchaikovsky. Album Op. 72: by Asiya Korepanova
This exhibition is by the illustrious Russian pianist, Asiya Korepanova. It showcases 18 works in mixed media, all of which are inspired by Tchaikovsky’s last piano work, “Morceaux opus 72.” The collection represents impressions, images, and feelings based on the work. The Tchaikovsky work struck Asiya, because “you can hear sadness written in a major key,” she says.
The Album Op. 72 was originally issued in 2010, and is dedicated to the 170th anniversary of the composer’s birth. The premiere performance took place in Moscow’s International House of Music on October 28, 2010.

Asiya Korepanova is a creative force. Her virtuosity as a pianist is best defined by a supreme level of technical aptitude, combined with her acutely individualized musical interpretations. A broad and unique artist, she expresses herself through several mediums; transcription, visual arts, poetry and composition. Through exploring and combining these art forms, Asiya continually rediscovers new ways to apply her creativity. Having an extensive piano repertoire, she is most fond of performing entire piano cycles. She is currently the only pianist to perform the complete 24 Franz Liszt Etudes at the same recital, a collection of pieces notorious for their prowess and dexterity, each etude effectively serving as a symphonic poem within itself.
