Vyacheslav Gryaznov (Piano).
On this release, as the title suggests, renowned pianist Vyacheslav Gryaznov approaches transcriptions of Russian chamber and orchestral works. He writes: «The art of transcription is a genre that is an integral part of my creative life. It’s an opportunity to look at some well-known pages of the past and feel modernity and novelty in them and express this dialog of epochs and styles.” Vyacheslav 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. 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.
