A series of small, intimate, solo piano recitals by some of the best players in Cyprus is coming to the island’s west coast as the Paphos Piano Series is set to be presented. Curated by Galina Dimova and organised by Paphos Music Lovers, each recital aims to uplift and inspire with a repertoire of well-loved and less-known masterpieces.
The performance on November 1 at Technopolis 20 with pianist Natalia Lezedova will be Paphos Music Lovers’ first concert since March, with eight more piano recitals set to follow in the coming months. Though the rest of the piano recitals as part of this series have not been confirmed yet, two other concerts by the Paphos association are on the agenda for this winter.
One is a jazz evening in early December with the Jazzologia Cyprus Big Band retracing the history of jazz in the 20th century featuring classic pieces from the 30s and onwards, Swing, Latin, Funk with the participation of renowned jazz singer George Kalopedis. The other is a candlelit Christmas concert on December 13, an afternoon of popular classics, light music and Christmas songs, including a sing-along to some of your favourites.
Until then, is next Sunday’s 5pm piano recital with Natalia Lezedova playing Chopin’s Waltzes № 1, 14, Nocturne №2 ор.9, Fantasia Impromptu, Liszt: Consolation № 3, two Etudes on a theme of Paganini: №3 La Campanella and №5 La Chasse. She will also perform a Grieg Nocturne, Tchaikovsky’s Andante Maestoso from Nutcracker, a Scriabin Etude №12, and also two Preludes and Musical moment in E minor by Rachmaninov.
