PIANOPOLIS Interpretation Laboratory (since 2020)

The laboratory was created for professionally oriented young musicians studying piano, looking for answers to creative questions and dreaming about a future as a performing musician who need additional professional assistance or want to find a new starting point.

The laboratory is a creative space for interpreting different compositions, formulating an individual creative outlook, expanding professional knowledge, and building an artistic image.

The Interpretation Laboratory classes are led by Elena Tarasova. A special series of master-classes are led by professors from different universities around the world. The special series of 2021 held by Boris Berezovsky, Pavel Nersessian, Andrey Pisarev, Boris Petrushansky. 

The Youth Concert Union, originally established in the Laboratory as a necessary practical aspect of artistic education, soon became a separate structure, uniting the Interpretation Laboratory’s students with young performers qualified or invited to take part in concert programs as a result of their performances in various international competitions. During the season, programs of the Youth Concert Union’s core performers are combined with performances by members of the Union’s programs and with a concert series titled “PIANOPOLIS and Friends”.
