On December 6th 08:00 AM Helena will give a special performance at the Oude Kerk Amsterdam. She will play Morton Feldman’s Triadic Memories at the new exposition Poems of Earthlings by Argentinian artist Adrián Villar Rojas.
” Basilova plays the older notes beautifully mild, but the pièce de résistance is the opening from the first Piano Sonata (1987) by Alfred Schnittke. There are fabulous resonances sounding from the piano, as the mysterious shadow empire of a fearful fairy tale.”
– Guido van Oorschot, Volkskrant * * * *
Last month Helena presented her newest album on Dutch Television with a live performance and interview. She talked about the story behind the album- about a fairy tale written for her when she was seven years old- and performed works by Medtner, Prokofiev and Firsova. To see the show please CLICK HERE.
