On November 20, in Riga, at the Great Guild hall, one of the most outstanding pianists of the 21st century, Polina Osetinskaya, comes out with the long-awaited concert "Baroque music in the art house cinema". Masterpieces of Bach, Handel, Purcell and Rameau from the landmark films of cult directors can be heard in Polina's exemplary performance.

Her performances are fascinating. Always stylish and perfect, she impresses not only with her inspired playing and virtuoso technique, but also with her magnificent appearance. In her interpretation, even the most famous and often performed piano masterpieces acquire new sound and semantic shades. Divine talent, impeccable sense of proportion and dignity, inherent in this pianist, guarantee her the love of audiophiles all over the world.

“Her tone is deep and rich, her articulation faultless and her feeling for the pulse of the music she is playing is as natural as breathing – that’s something that cannot be taught” – from review of edition “Klassisk Musikk”.

"The jewellery skill" - this is how music critics evaluate Polina Osetinskaya's performance. Great success came to her in her childhood. Being a child prodigy, she gave her first solo concert at the Vilnius Conservatory at the age of six, and a few years later, she performed for the first time in Riga. Easily and passionately, the pianist has gained people’s love and international fame, getting rid of the label of a child prodigy and becoming one of the brightest pianists of our time.

Today Polina Osetinskaya is a welcome guest of all the leading concert halls in the world. Outstanding conductors invite her; she is enthusiastically accepted at famous festivals in Europe and the USA. Therefore, in July 2019, she made her successful debut at the famous Salzburg Festival.

In her concert programs, as well as in her appearance, there is nothing accidental. The next proof will be a big solo concert "Baroque music in the art house cinema". Polina Osetinskaya will perform musical masterpieces by European classics of baroque music, whose works have become an important part of the cult movies of the best directors of the 20th century. Andrei Tarkovsky, Francis Ford Coppola, Lars von Trier, Ingmar Bergman and Peter Greenaway used this music in their famous motion pictures - Solaris, The Godfather, Breaking the Waves, Autumn Sonata and Draughtsman’s Contract. Great music has become one of the most important means of dramaturgy and has ceased to be taken as just a background by moviegoers.

Non-standard musical thinking, genuine charm, impeccability in details - this is what distinguishes the art of Polina Osetinskaya. Do not miss the opportunity to hear the virtuoso pianist in person!

The concert is supported by ZUNDA TOWERS.

The concert is organized by international company Winstag Production OU.
