Participation at the West Cork Chamber Music Festival

From 29 June to 7 July Olga Solovieva took part at the West Cork Chamber Music Festival, Bantry (Ireland).  She performed Schumann's Papillons; and Poulenc's Trio with Ivan Podyomov (oboe) and Peter Whelan (basson).

Also Olga gave three master-classes for young musicians - Westland Piano Trio [Roisin Walters (violin), Paul Grennan (cello), Fiachra Garvey (piano)].

"...Schumann’s piano music holds so many happy memories for me that I was looking forward to Solovieva’s performance, not having heard her in anything but ensemble music last year and been bowled over then by her sheer musicianship. She did not disappoint. Singing (noiselessly) as she played, she was totally absorbed in these miniature dance masterpieces as she perfectly captured their magic. Like the music’s reluctance to leave go of the penultimate chord’s notes, I was sorry that her performance had come to the end."
