Aurelie Tremblay, pianistica: http://www.aurelietremblay.com/

Aurélie Tremblay was born in Paris. And it was her grandmother, the pianist Pauline Gordon (a pupil of Marguerite Long), who gave her her first piano lessons. She attended the Ecole Normale de Musique Alfred Cortot de Paris and the Conservatoire National Supérieur des Musique de Paris. She was a pupil of Germaine Mournier and Mercęs da Silva Telles, a pupil of Claudio Arrau. As a chamber musician, she performed repeatedly with her grandfather, the cellist Armand Belai. She graduated secondary school at the age of fifteen and, then, left Paris to continue her studies with the Russian pianist Alexander Satz at the Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Graz.

Since 1995, Aurélie Tremblay, in her turn, is a teacher at the Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Graz. In 1998, she was granted her diploma as a concert pianist. Aurélie Tremblay attended master courses held by Lev Naoumov, Vera Gornostaeva, Dimitri Baschkirov and David Lively. She is renowned as a solist, chamber musician and accompanist all over Europe. She performed - to name just a few - with the Klangforum Wien at the steirische herbst in Graz, with the Concert Verein in the Brahmssaal of the Wiener Musikverein as well as with the Grazer Symphoniker.

Koncert u Mimari, II kat, 14. 5. 2008.

Sergej Rachmaninoff
2 Preludien op. 23

Alexander Skriabin
Etude op. 2 Nr. 1
Etude op. 8 Nr.12

Frederic Chopin
Scherzo Nr.1 op. 20

Aurélie Tremblay knew the French and Russian school of piano playing from her earliest days. That it could be the Russian school she would turn to, first dawned on her when she met the Russian pianist Alexander Satz.
Aurélie Tremblay met Satz in 1991, in Paris. The pianist was fascinating both as a teacher and a musician and she decided to continue her studies with Alexander Satz. in the very same year, Satz was invited to teach at the university of music and dramatic arts in Graz. Thus, it occurred that Aurélie Tremblay left Paris to follow Alexander Satz to Graz.
Studying with Satz tinged Aurélie Tremblay's play in the style of the Russian aesthetics endowing it with the colourful sonority of the Russian school.

 

Patrik Ervell’s latest collection is ironically titled “Software”ADIDAS ORIGINALS TUBULAR SHADOW. In the notes from the presentation, Ervell says he was “interested in developing tension between nostalgia and sci-fi,NIKE ZOOM WINFLO 3” and even included ‘90s cyberpunk amongst his influences. Ervell developed this point of view by creating an imaginary software company called Idegen software systems. He then re-appropriated the company’AIR JORDAN XXXI MENs logo in several of the collection’s garments. Elsewhere,MBT TARIKI MEN mohair coats with oversized lapels made an appearance alongside mock neck tees,NIKE AIR JORDAN RETRO 5 police-inspired ribbed sweaters,MBT FORA GTX WOMEN flight bombers, and polyurethane leather coats. The setting was also suitably dystopian, and the resulting ambiance was something akin to if the creators of Deutschland ’83 and Hackers met up and decided to create a collection… We mean that as a compliment.Yesterday afternoon,JORDAN CP3 IX MEN artist JR spent the day working on his latest collaborative piece with Daniel Arsham in Greenpoint,NIKE AIR MAX 90 Brooklyn,MBT KIMONDO GTX MEN NYC. Connecting the lines between art, architecture, dance and theater, Daniel Arsham has been known to subvert existing architectural structures in unconventional,NIKE CLASSIC CORTEZ NYLON playful ways; confusing and confounding the expectations of space and form.
