Historic Event Space Hosts Live Classical Music April 4, 2014

Financial District, Manhattan
Historic Event Space Hosts Live Classical Music, Manhattan, New York

India House "gets classical" with an intimate night of live classical music , this time around performed by 3 stellar pianists: Vassily Primakov, Natalia Lavrova and David Aladashvili. Hosted by Masterpiece Caterers and Yamaha Artists Services, the salon-inspired performance series GetClassical, pays homage to bridging the cultural ambience of the 19th century salons with today's New York City lifestyle. In bringing live performances to intimate event spaces, like the signature Hanover Room at the historic India House, GetClassical offers a leisurely yet exciting way to experience great classical programming, up close and personal. Bringing the after party to the concert, GetClassical attempts to avoid the disconnect between artist and audience commonly experienced at the larger concert halls.

Classical music enthusiasts ranging from age 8 to 88 filled the ornate signature event space early in the evening, preparing for an evening full of virtuoso, romantic piano repertoire from the 19th century, including Schumann's famed cycle of "Symphonic Etudes", performed by the rising young star pianist David Aladashvili. The guests were welcomed with an aperitivo style wine and hors d'eouvres tasting hosted by Masterpiece Caterers. Smoked Salmon, Crab Salad and a variety of tea sandwiches filled the bellies of the eager music lovers. Yamaha Artist Services hauled two grand pianos into the midst of the elegant private room, so that the pianist-duo Vassily Primakov and Natalia Lavrova, who are just about to release their Rachmaninov four-hands CD, had an opportunity to shine together. Vassily Primakov, in particular renowned as a fine Chopin specialist, stunned the audience in an outstanding performance of six selected Chopin-Mazurkas.

In between pieces, the musicians spoke about their personal experiences with the music, from discovering a piece for the very first time, learning how to play it, to the moment of meaningful connection with the music and about sharing it with the audience. The intimate conversation with the artists was a treat for all the attendees, creating a full experience of classical music from inspiration to execution. Sharing the bench, all three pianists concluded the evening with a special encore, Rachmaninov's "Romance" four six-hands.

For any music enthusiast, the evening was a rare opportunity to get a personal music experience and to meet with these young talents. GetClassical and Masterpiece Caterers continue to collaborate on more opportunities to bring live music to the historic Financial district in downtown Manhattan, stay tuned for more fun events in the future.
