Antonii Baryshevskyi is a laureate of many international music contests, including Arthur Rubinstein (Israel) and Ferruccio Busoni (Italy). Studied at the National Music Academy in Kiev and the Ecole Normale de musique de Paris. With huge success concerts in Europe and the USA. Recorded in the Naxos, world-famous label of classical music. Soloist of the National Philharmonic of Ukraine.
"I am more interested in music, in which there is an expression, saturation of timbre and temperament," - said pianist. "Twenty contemplations on the infant Jesus" by Olivier Messiaen is the most variable piano piece of modernity.
The alternation of images in it is thoroughly thought out and dramatically built up: carefree calm changes with tension, tenderness with severity, and then in a smile. Despite the complexity and versatility of “Twenty contemplations”, this cycle grows out of small "bricks" - several themes that repeat and develop as a leitmotif.
We will be able to look at the "infant Jesus" by the eyes of the pianist Baryshevskyi on December 8, in waiting for Christmas. It’s the best time for such music!
