9, 10 & 11/6
Every June since 2016, Russian pianist Tatiana Stupak has been organising a charity concert in Limassol to celebrate her birthday. This year, due to Covid restrictions, she will hold concerts on three successive evenings with a different musical theme. In this first concert, she will be accompanying mezzo-soprano singer Anastasia Maximova, in a repertoire of well-known pieces, including some operatic arias.
Tatiana studied at the Special School of the Rimsky-Korsakov State Conservatory in St. Petersburg, and has received multiple awards at piano competitions. She is very well known in Cyprus, having played piano at more than 80 events during the past years, both as a soloist and together with other musicians.
Anastasia Maximova is a graduate of the Rimsky-Korsakov St. Petersburg State Conservatory. She is well known as a songwriter, including pop songs, and as a film composer. She is also the founder and art director of the first Russian interactive opera theatre “Midnight Opera”, where the soloists involve the audience to take part in opera performances. In addition to her amazing voice, she also has a strong stage energy, fascinating spectators everywhere.
The net proceeds of the three concerts will be given to the Holy Temple of the Archangel Michael & the Chapel of St Matrona Monovolikos, Limassol.
In this second concert, Tatiana Stupak hosts exceptional string soloists Olivera Rialas (violin), and Fabio Cavaggion (cello).
Olivera Rialas graduated from Belgrade University and continued her studies at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest. She has performed throughout Europe, China and the USA, where she played several times at Carnegie Hall. She was a violin professor at the University of Nĭs College of Music and at the Long Island Conservatory, where she was appointed as Chair of the String Department from 2002-2004. She founded the “Performing Arts Factory” in Belgrade. Since moving to Cyprus, she has continued her performing and teaching career.
Fabio Cavaggion, after his postgraduate studies, he joined the National Youth Orchestra of Santa Cecilia. He has had a distinguished career with orchestras in Italy, Malta and Portugal, as well as with famous actress Valentina Cortese in Theatre Argentina, Rome. Later on in his career, he decided to quit playing in orchestras, in order to experiment with different fields, playing in open spaces.
In this third and final concert, Russian pianist Tatiana Stupak invites her own students on stage, performing together an interesting repertoire of varied musical themes and instruments.
