Marina is truly international. Born in Saint Petersburg, Russia, she began to play piano by ear, improvise and compose at the age of four. She was titled the ’Most Promising Young Composer 1994’ after winning the Young Composer Festival in Ural, Russia.
Highlights of Marina’s classical performances include collaborations with the German star-cellist Maximilian Hornung (Sony) with whom she won several awards in her teens while studying together. Marina was selected to perform Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto under maestro Marcello Viotti at the ‘Klasse Klassik’ concert series in Munich, recorded solo piano parts of Respighi’s ‘Pines Of Rome’ for Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra Munich and most recently was invited to perform at the ‘Classic FM Live 2015’ concert at the Royal Albert Hall London together with the American star-soprano Angel Blue (Decca). In 2012 Marina was honored to perform her own music at the Hollywood- movie premiere of ’Anna Karenina’ with Keira Knightley and Jude Law in London.
Discovered in 2010 during her performance at the National Arts Club New York by the British classical crossover producer John Haywood who writes music for stars such as the violin-virtuoso David Garrett and UK’s #1 pop-star Paloma Faith to name a few, the decision was made to produce an album together that combines a repertoire of classical greats with sumptuous symphonic versions of modern classics.
