Dinara Klinton (piano): The Musicians’ Company #MiddayMusic

Dinara Klinton joined the Musicians' Company Young Artists' Programme after winning our Maisie Lewis Young Artists' Fund award in 2015. Here she performs piano transcriptions of Gershwin's 'The Man I Love' and Mendelssohn's Wedding March. Dinara says: "I'm a Ukrainian-born pianist, graduate of Moscow Conservatory and Royal College of Music. I have won several prizes, played in some recognised venues round the world and recorded a few albums. Last year I also started teaching in RCM. I chose to play piano transcriptions, or rather paraphrases, of two very famous works. One is by Earl Wild, his Etude No. 3 based on George Gershwin's 'The Man I Love', and another one is Mendelssohn's Wedding March transcribed by Ferenz Liszt and further arranged by Vladimir Horowitz. I thought that we need some bright rays in form of timeless hits to uplift us, and also that we mustn't forget the most beautiful and important of the feelings these days - the feeling of love, which is the central idea of both pieces." -------------------------------------------------- Musicians' Company Profile - http://www.wcom.org.uk/yeoman/dinara-klinton Musicians' Company interview (2017) - http://www.wcom.org.uk/news/yeoman-of-the-month-march-2017-dinara-klinton About the Maisie Lewis Young Artists' Fund - http://www.wcom.org.uk/awards/maisie-lewis-young-artists-fund-and-concordia-foundation-artists-fund Dinara's Website - http://www.dinaraklinton.com Dinara's Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/dinaratrans Dinara's Instagram - http://www.instagram.com/dinaraklinton_official Dinara's Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/DinaraKlinton Dinara's YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/user/vzaimno -------------------------------------------------- Join our weekly #MiddayMusic e-news at http://eepurl.com/dv0ccr #MiddayMusic is supported by funds from the Musicians' Company’s Prince’s Prize which received a generous endowment in 2015 from The Eranda Rothschild Foundation and Rothschilds Bank, in memory of Leopold de Rothschild, a Liveryman of the Musicians’ Company for over 50 years.
