Award-winning Bulgarian-American pianist Ani Gogova bends the conventions of presenting classical music in her debut solo recording. Starting with the strikingly dramatic CD package design, created by one of Europe’s leading visual artists, the album takes the listeners on a journey to the pianist’s world of “Fantasies, Fairytales, and Nightmares.” The music ranges from all-time favorite Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata to lesser known Medtner’s magical Fairytales; from the intimate beauty of romantic fantasy pieces of Schumann and Brahms to the whimsical humor of Shostakovich, the electrifying energy of Prokofiev, and the enigmatic code of Ligeti.
Acclaimed for her innovative approach to classical music, AniGogova appears in over 40 performances each season throughout Europe and North America. Her cutting-edge collaborations with artists of other media such as photography, film, live animation, poetry, and dance create fresh and memorable classical experiences.
