After their debut at Carnegie Hall in New York, LP Duo (Sonja Loncar & Andrija Pavlovic) are coming to London to present specially designed hybrid pianos (UK premiere).These instruments came as a result of a collaboration between LP Duo and quantum physicists from Oxford and Singapore. Hybrids are connecting acoustic pianos with retro-synthesizers and sounds from the quantum laboratories. Music by Adams, Helweg, Perrin, Raickovich, Bozicevic, Meijering and Correa will drive you through the journey of XXI century music where the borders between chamber ensemble and rock band are being erased.

With a concert production of Contemporary Composers & the Piano

Lola PerrinA non-profit company “Around the Globe Music & Arts” was launched with an extraordinary piano concert featuring performances by composers playing their own piano works in the restrained and beautiful setting of the turn-of-the-century St Cyprian's church, near Baker Street in London.

We much enjoyed hearing many diverse music styles including an authentic and exceptionally musical performance of Lola Perrin's selection of pieces from her opus of piano suites, which bear traits of modern classical styles with emerging jazz elements.

This was followed by UK premiere of the astonishing Shakespeare's Sonnets, composed by Vera Milankovic whose theatre piano music is full of beautiful archaic tunes and harmonies. In addition, a moving recitation by actress Vesna Stanojevic of mainly love sonnets transferred us back in time to a baroque era.

Vera's other performance of a solo piano piece, homage to famous Serbian writer and poet Isidora Sekulic and her Norwegian Letters, was both inspirational and highly praised.

Another UK premiere was a compelling “Jewish Piano Suit” (1989), written by prominent Serbian composer, the late Aleksandar Vujic (1945- 2017). An outstanding performance by renowned pianist Olga Dudnik brought to light the complexity and true conception of the piece using a wide spectrum of tembre, great pianistic artistry and strong emotional charge.
