Russian pianist Evgeny Sinaiski performing in the world premiere music video of VC Young Artist Maria Dueñas’ original work: ‘Farewell’ for Solo Piano.
Originally composed for the 2016 Robert Schumann International Piano Competition, when Maria was just 13, the new music video was recently recorded and produced by music producer Alexander Houben during the COVID-19 lockdown.
“‘Farewell’ has a bit to do with the Phoenix myth and the ability to renew, learn or rebirth from negative experiences – and it is inspired by a personal experience, as I believe most compositions are … ” Maria has told The Violin Channel.
“The opportunity to transform the music into a short clip came after having met Alexander – who immediately understood the music and how to transform it into cinematic language …” the 17-year-old violin virtuoso has said.
“I just love when different arts merge into one and become more accessible to the greater audience … I think this is the responsibility of every artist.”
