"... During the Early Music Days in Sopron (Hungary, 1990) I attended classes of baroque singing held by Guy de Mey. I became completely passionate in baroque music, but there was no opportunity in Moscow to study thoroughly baroque singing. As I could not continue my education in European institutes, specialized in early music, I tried to learn as much as possible by listening records of the famous baroque performers, by talking and collaborating with a very few number of Moscow baroque instrumentalists with European education (and with prof. Tatiana Zenaishvili particularly), and by my own intuition.
In March 2000 I studied the Telemann vocal style with prof. Barbara Schlick and prof. Hermann Max at the 3rd Telemann Academy (Magdeburg). In June 2001 I was an active participant of the vocal courses held at the Moscow Conservatoire by prof. Sabine Kaipainen.
Between 1991 and 1995 I was soloist of the early music ensemble "Pratum Musicum". Since then I collaborate with such musicians as Tatiana Zenaishvili (harpsichord, organ), Tatiana Andrianova (organ), Antonio Gramschi (recorders), Svetlana Sheveleva (recorders), Vadim Krasnov (lute), with the Chamber Orchestra of the Moscow State University. Recently two new early music ensembles were founded by me and my musical friends: "Opella Lauta" and "La Squadriglia".
My repertoire includes a range of late renaissance and baroque songs and cantatas, some of them performed for the first time in Russia: "Leçons de Ténèbres" by François Couperin, Alessandro Scarlatti's Stabat Mater, solo cantatas by Nicolas Bernier, sacred music of Johann Rosenmüller among them could be mentioned. Apart from early music I like very much to sing Mozart, Schubert, Rachmaninov, of late I sing also Russian romances from the manuscript of the 19th c. (1833) with Vladimir Markushevitch (Russian guitar). " Visit website for more information. (ed.)
