Olga Pashchenko

  Olga Pashchenko performs Beethoven.

For her new recording, pianist Olga Pashchenko has chosen the combination of Beethoven’s two Opus 49 sonatas and three sets of his variations, thus tackling what are commonly called ‘smaller forms’ but which remain important works nonetheless, especially the Variations, op. 35. We get to listen to the following: Beethoven:

  • Variations (32) on an Original Theme in C minor, WoO 80
  • Piano Sonata No. 19 in G minor, Op. 49 No. 1
  • Fantasia in G minor, Op. 77
  • Piano Sonata No. 20 in G major, Op. 49 No. 2
  • Eroica Variations, Op. 35

Performed by Olga Pashchenko (piano) This young pianist commands admiration for her way of always enlarging her journey. She depends on certain great influences (in particular, Alexei Lubimov) and thereby further affirming her personality as an exceptional musician.
