Creative Mercury Bay is delighted to announce that Oleg Marshev is returning to Whitianga to present his programme Chopin and Scriabin.

 

 “I got the idea to make this program for a simple reason: Chopin [1810-1849] had an enormous effect on the music of the 19th century. In many aspects, he determined the development of all romantic music. Obviously, he had a huge influence on many composers and I was especially attracted by the connection with the great Russian composer, Scriabin [1871-1915]...Chopin was Scriabin’s favourite composer and it is interesting that in his early and even in his middle-period works, [Scriabin] used so many forms that were so typical for Chopin...Then, in his turn, Scriabin brought the harmonic language to a completely new level, reaching the boundaries of traditional harmony, bringing the musical ideas to the edge of madness. And for me, it is particularly amazing to hear how unique they both remain. You hear one phrase and can say – ‘oh, yes, it is Chopin’, or – ‘it is Scriabin’.” – Oleg Marshev

Born in Baku, former USSR, Oleg Marshev trained with Valentina Aristova at the Gnesin School for Highly Gifted Children and with Mikhail Voskresensky at the Moscow Conservatory where he completed his Performance Doctorate in 1988 gaining the Diploma with Honor. Marshev is thus a direct representative of the fifth generation of Russian pianism since Liszt, through Alexander Siloti, Konstantin Igumnov and Voskresensky’s teacher, Lev Oborin. Resident in Italy since 1991, Marshev has received awards in several international piano competitions in Canada, Italy, Portugal, Spain, USA, including 4 first prizes. The illustrious competition victories have confirmed the artist’s reputation as one of the most talented Russian pianists of his generation.

 

Alongside his concert engagements, Oleg gives masterclasses in many different countries and is a Professor at the Anton Bruckner University in Linz, Austria.
