Reflections on the Music of the Russian Exodus:Vladimir Drozdoff


Our thanks to the University of New Haven for INVITING and SPONSORING The Drozdoff Society's Production.

TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW.

A production of The Drozdoff Society, with

GEORGE BORISOV, pianist/musicologist
HANNA GOLODINSKII, lyric-dramatic soprano
VYACHESLAV GRYAZNOV, pianist-composer
NATASHA CHERNY, producer

The great social eruption of Russia in 1917 -- the 100th Anniversary of which we mark this year -- threw away the country's intellect and soul. Among the distinguished artists who escaped Russia, like Rachmaninoff, Chaliapin, Gretchaninoff, Koussevitzky, Heifitz, and Horowitz, was Vladimir Drozdoff, who came to New York.

This team of Slavic artists will tell you the story of this Romantic pianist-composer, who was lost in the 20th century jazz and rock jungles of New York; they will animate for you the pages of his manuscripts, which glimmer with the reflections of his own drama and that of his tribe through narration, song, piano, photography from The Drozdoff Society's archives, and historical recordings.

George P. Borisov received his professional training in piano performance from the Rachmaninov State Conservatory - B.A. (Rostov, Russia) and the Glinka State Conservatory - M.A. and D.M.A. (Novosibirsk, Russia). He was also granted his doctorate degree in musicology from the All-Russia Institute of Musicology (Moscow) and the title Professor Honoris Causa from the Krasnodar State University of the Arts.

Significant contributions to his professional formation were made by the celebrated musicians Anna Baron (pupil of Heinrich Neuhaus) and Ludmilla Korabelnikova (pupil of Boris Asafyev). George Borisov’s teaching experience includes piano faculty positions at Krasnodar State University of the Arts and Krasnodar State Music College (Russia); Westminster Conservatory of Rider University and Ocean County College (New Jersey, United States).

Dr. Borisov has two primary musicological interests: the history of regional music culture development, which he has written about for both the Kuban Region of Russia and Central New Jersey in the United States; and the heritage of the pianist-composer brothers Vladimir and Anatoly Drozdoff. He has authored and co-authored a number books on these subjects, and contributed numerous articles to both Russian and American professional periodicals. For more than eight years, he was the producer and host for the music history program, "Lost Pages of Our Culture" (Russia). In the United States, he co-founded The Drozdoff Society in 2015.

Ukrainian-American Opera Singer, Soprano Hanna Golodinskii, received her Master's Degree as an Opera Solo Performer and Chamber Solo Performer in 2004 from the National Music Academy of Ukraine in Kiev in the class of Ukrainian Opera star, Professor Diana Petrinenko.

Ms. Golodinskii’s roles include Violetta in Verdi's "La Traviata,” Margarita in Gounod's "Faust,” Tatiana in Tchaikovsky "Euvgene Onegin,” Iolanta in "Iolanta," all of which roles she performed with the Ukrainian National Academy Opera Theater's Youth Opera. Her repertoire also includes Requiems by Rutter, Mozart, Brahms, Faure, Gounod, Verdi, and solo parts in Mendelssohn’s "Elijah,” Handel’s "Messiah,” Beethoven’s "Mass in C,” Haydn’s "Lord Nelson Mass,” and Vivaldi’s "Gloria."

Hanna is a regular soloist with the Russian Chamber Chorus of New York (RCCNY), Conductor and Music Director, Maestro Nikolai Kachanov. With RCCNY, Hanna Golodinskii has performed on the stages of Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Riverside Church in New York City and many other prestigious venues.

Hanna Golodinskii is also a regular soloist at the First Congregational Church of Greenwich, Connecticut. Her solo performances can be heard on WGCH National Radio broadcasts. She is also a soloist with “Concertino New York Orchestra.”

Hanna has had a number of solo appearances at Carnegie Hall, and performed on the legendary radio show "Prairie Home Companion" with Garrison Keillor.

Mrs. Golodinskii is an honored Artist-in-Residence and member of The Drozdoff Society.

Vyacheslav Gryaznov graduated with honors from the Central Music School of the Moscow State Conservatory where he studied with Professor Manana Kandelaki. He proceeded with undergraduate studies at the Moscow Conservatory (class of Professor Yuri Slesarev), once again completing his degree with honors. He continued at the Moscow Conservatory as a post-graduate student, and is on the teaching faculty of the Moscow Conservatory’s Piano Department. In 2016 he accepted Yale University’s invitation to fulfill the Artist Diploma program under the Yale School of Music’s Professor Boris Berman.

Vyacheslav Gryaznov is a member of the Moscow Philharmonic Society, which represents him in Russia, and is an Artist-in-Residence with The Drozdoff Society in the United States.
A prize-winner of international competitions in Italy, Ukraine, Denmark, Georgia, Japan, and Russia (including six first and Grand prizes) and a frequent guest at international festivals, the pianist has toured in many countries of Europe, CIS, Africa, Japan, the United States, and throughout Russia. His NHK video recordings are shown on Japanese TV on a regular basis. In Russia, the pianist's recordings are often played on Orpheus classical radio.

Gryaznov’s 2016-2017 performances included the Berliner Philharmonie and Carnegie Hall as winner of the 2016 New York Concert Artists Worldwide Debut Audition; the Bay Area Steinway Society of San Jose, California; four performances with the Atlantic Classical Orchestra in a multi-city Florida tour; multiple engagements for The Drozdoff Society’s Impromptu! Classical Music Recital series; as well as engagements in Russia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Austria, and France. He has also recorded a CD on the Steinway & Sons label.

Vyacheslav Gryaznov is the author of more than 30 concert arrangements and transcriptions and has gained a reputation as one of the most remarkable young arrangers working today. In 2014 Gryaznov signed a publishing contract with Schott Music (Germany).
