New programme for the coming season
In commemoration of Scriabin
Amsterdam, Sun, 10. Nov 2013For the season 2014-15 Marietta has composed a special programme with Preludes by Chopin and Scriabin.

For the season 2014/15 Marietta Petkova has something special to offer. In commemoration of the anniversary of Alexander Scriabin's death in april 2015 she composed a programme with his 24 Preludes Op 11, alongside with the 24 Preludes Op 28 by Frédéric Chopin. Scriabin's early works are strongly influenced by Chopin, but later on he broke new ground and his compositions became visionary and mystic and harmonically bolder. The composer's ideas may certainly appeal to a broader and younger public; take e.g. themes like eroticism, ecstasy, sensivity, colouring and spirituality. The programme will be completed with shorter works by Chopin and Scriabin, among them the spectacular Poème Op 72 'Vers la flamme', for a video of which see
Apart from this special item there is a lot of other programmes to choose, with works by Bach, Beethoven, Liszt, Schumann, Prokoviev and others.

Marietta also forms a duo with violinist Vesko Eschkenazy. Critics characterize them as 'an ideal musical duo, playing with enormous individual intensity, yet at the same time clearly enjoying their playing together.' There are two programmes to choose from, the first one with music by Isaÿe, Mozart, Debussy, Prokoviev and Brahms, the other one with works by Beethoven and Debussy, completed with Brahms' Trio in Es for horn violin and piano, with the assistance of Laurens Woudenberg, the new first horn of the Concertgebouw Orchestra.

Through the agency of Brinks Artists Management Marietta can also be booked as soloist with the Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra, with piano concertos by Mozart and Chopin.
