After epic move to a new country and all related things I had to take care about, I am finally happy to present another beginners-oriented video. However, some of my fellow pianists claim that even they discovered a couple of new things there. Have fun!
Another upcoming concert announcement:
The program that features an exiting travel through the musical worlds of Schubert. An existential question posed in the Impromptu in F Minor op.142/1, an exciting but highly challenging journey in order to find the answer via the Wanderer-Fantasie op.15, and finally the sounding silence, wisdom and contemplation of the Sonata “Fantasie” in G Major D.894
This is a very interesting topic that even many professional musicians don’t actually know about. But knowing the difference might help you to built a more convincing interpretation!
This quarantine has changed everything. Many people have started doing things they have never been expecting from themselves. I am not an exclusion: this situation gave me time to systematise my piano experience and to start a piano blog about the efficiency of piano playing. From basics to the interpretational issues.
Back in the mid February when I have got the idea and have filmed this video I could not imagine that it would be so actual with the current cities lock down…
Just for those who like to explore the world of music really deep – here is my Master Thesis about a wonderful Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov

Some fresh critic in the Luzerner Zeitung after our performance of the Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy in KKL, Luzern.
“The piano part was performed by a young and surprising pianist Denis Zhdanov. He graduates with his Master Solo Diploma at the Hochschule Luzern this year, he has already won various prizes and played with Madrid Symphony and Helsinki Radio Symphony among others.
He brought a corresponding self-confidence to the Fantasy. The Ukrainian plays a modern Beethoven, creating nearly a film music piece from a virtuoso firework. While his playing is being dramatic in the expression, sometimes slightly tough but very clear and distinct by structure, he gives this piece a very special and fascinating character. The orchestra stays here at a more “traditional” side. The public treats the excellent ensemble of the choir and soloists with a long lasting applause at the end.”
