Hamburg hosts Russian piano concert
A concert dedicated to the 160th anniversary of the Russian composer Mikhail Ippolitov-Ivanov was held in the Russian center of the Tchaikovsky House in Hamburg on February, 7.
The piano duet of Ivanova-Tsagarinsky presented his most significant orchestral works in the original transcription for piano four hands. The concert, which the organizers called the Russian Bouquet, included works by Glinka, Borodin, Cui and Ippolitov-Ivanov.
Pianists Maria Ivanova and Alexander Tsagarinsky graduated from the Tchaikovsky Moscow Conservatory, as well as the Berlin University of the Arts. They also studied at the University of Mozarteum in Salzburg and the Higher School of Music in Lübeck. During their studies at the university, they became laureates of international competitions such as the Young Pianists Competition in Ettlingen, the Arthur Schnabel Competition in Berlin, the Chopin Competition in Göttingen, and the chamber music competition in Trapani.
In 2004, Maria Ivanova and Alexander Tsagarinsky founded the piano duet. As soloists and partners in the piano duet, they participated in major music festivals and regularly gave concerts with various orchestras in Russia, as well as throughout Europe and Asia. The repertoire of the Ivanova-Tsagarinsky duet is based on the symphonic works of Russian composers in the original transcription for piano four hands.
