Technopolis 20 Cultural Centre in Paphos may be considered a small venue but it offers lots of variety and brings in some of the most talented artists and musicians around. This time the cultural centre will enrich its list of events with a classical concert for piano and cello on Friday at 8pm.
The concert will feature classical pianist Tatiana Stupak and cellist Robert Grod. Together the pair will perform a programme of classical music including works by Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Kodaly, Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky and Limassol composer David Pentecost.
Stupak started piano lessons at the age of five and found a real talent for the instrument. This talent led her to study at the Rimsky-Korsakov State Conservatory in Saint Petersburg. She was the winner of a Bach international competition and an organ international competition in Russia, and she has performed in Austria, Germany and in Limassol, Paphos and Nicosia as both a solo pianist and accompanying other musicians. She also teaches piano at her own piano school The Russian House in Limassol.
Grod, from Lithuania, studied in Vilnius at the Balys Dvarionas music school and at the Moscow State Conservatory. He is a laureate prize winner of the Dvarionas and Urba music competitions in Lithuania. Since his graduation he has been working in Nicosia as part of the Cyprus Young String Soloists.
