Pianist Oxana Corjos is one of the leading pianists of her generation and is especially appreciated for the vastitude of the repertoire that she takes up whichcovers form Bach and Mozart to Rachmaninov and Ravel. At the height of her artistic maturity, Oxana Corjos still retains some of the charm of an artist who ingenuously discovers her own beginning. The proposed recital program marks one of the most important moments in the history of piano repertoire, as it is the symbol of a completely special type of communication, based on a charming decryption of music in captivating narrative frames, which Oxana Corjos constantly duplicates with the emotion of a confession.
In the proposed recital, Oxana Corjos introduces us into the universe of fascinating femininity, through the eternal paradox of the unusual force and the fragility of an ineffable seducer.
