B i o g r a p h y

I am grateful for receiving classical training from my teacher p. Viera Kalivodová in Slovakia starting at the age of 6. 

 

This has built up my music foundation which I decided to expand on when I lived in Denmark at age 16 and when I moved to the UK afterwards. Recently I am based in Berlin.

I started to compose my own pieces 7 years ago being inspired by travelling, societal issues, biographies of people who I had a chance to get to know personally. I love to  spread out the beauty of music through teaching piano and singing.

My performances take place internationally at different cultural events in Germany, Denmark, England, Czech Republic, Slovakia.

I have released my first piano solo album X Minor this year and I presented it at Slovak Embassy in Berlin. 

My classical repertoire was mainly focused on romantic and late romantic era, particularly Chopin and Rachmaninov.

 

I am influenced by contemporary music composed by Philip Glass, Ennio Morricone, Michael Nyman, Max Richter, Nils Frahm & Yann Tiersen. I enjoy playing some classical jazz pieces from George Gershwin and Friedrich Gulda as well as improvise.
