Rachmaninoff - Polichinelle Op 3 plays by Elena Gantchikova
Elena Gantchikova is considered one of the most talented and most promising young musicians of her generation. In her works, she covers a very large range of genres and different forms of music. Her work shows a great professionalism as well as great originality of style, novelty of ideas and the methods of realization. Most stunning is the impression created by the union of the timbres of traditional orchestral instruments and folk instruments of varying origins, treated by real-time electronics. Her talent, her creative personality and dynamism, her substantial cultural level, her mastery, the richness of her projects—all these attributes allow one to consider her already a remarkable phenomenon in contemporary musical creation.

Elena Gantchikova plays Tchaikovsky "Romeo and Juliet"
Enter Juliet above at a window. But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the East, and Juliet is the sun! Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief That thou her maid art far more fair than she. Be not her maid, since she is envious. Her vestal livery is but sick and green, And none but fools do wear it. Cast it off. It is my lady; O, it is my love! O that she knew she were! She speaks, yet she says nothing. What of that? Her eye discourses; I will answer it. I am too bold; 'tis not to me she speaks. Two of the fairest stars in all the heaven, Having some business, do entreat her eyes To twinkle in their spheres till they return. What if her eyes were there, they in her head? The brightness of her cheek would shame those stars As daylight doth a lamp; her eyes in heaven Would through the airy region stream so bright That birds would sing and think it were not night. See how she leans her cheek upon her hand! O that I were a glove upon that hand, That I might touch that cheek! Jul. Ay me! Rom. She speaks. O, speak again, bright angel! for thou art As glorious to this night, being o'er my head, As is a winged messenger of heaven Unto the white-upturned wond'ring eyes Of mortals that fall back to gaze on him When he bestrides the lazy-pacing clouds And sails upon the bosom of the air.
