    Piano Angela Cholakian
    The art of Angela Cholakian is defining the concept of a performer and educator of what we call today “the Russian School of Piano Performance." Born and raised in Russia, she began taking piano lessons at the age of 4. She was already a pupil of a music school when she was six, and when she was thirteen, she was accepted by the “Tchaikovsky Central School for Gifted Children”in Armenia, where she caused a sensation with  public performances of Liszt’s E flat Major, Chopin’s F minor and Brahms’s D minor piano concertos.  At the age of seventeen she began to study music at the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Russia with Yevgeny Malinin, who was Heinrich Neuhaus’s last assistant at Moscow Conservatory (the latter also raised and taught Sviatoslav Richter, Emil Gilels, Vladimir Krainev, Alexei Lubimov and Grigory Sokolov). Yevgeny Malinin spoke highly about Angela and was the first one to recognize her as "...a pianist of the romantic style, passionate, poetic, and virtuosic..."  She was particularly renowned for her dedication to contemporary works and for the meticulousness with which she worked on these with their composers, for example the famous Arno Babajanian, whose complete piano works she performed in concerts.
     
    Shortly before the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Cholakian family emigrated to America.  Here, Angela Cholakian founded the well-known “Tchaikovsky Music Academy” in Los Angeles, where piano performance in the tradition of classical Russian style was taught.  For ten years she was the Director of this artistic academy, where numerous students from the “Curtis Institute of Music” and the famous “Juilliard School” came to take additional private lessons with Angela Cholakian.  During this period, she also received her American “Artist Diploma” and the “Doctor of Musical Arts in Piano Performance” degree.
     
    Angela Cholakian, who has performed concerts in America, Europe, Asia and the former Soviet Union, is a pianist whose phenomenal technique always serves her musical convictions and passion.  She was highly acclaimed in numerous critical reviews in France, Luxemburg, USA, Canada, Germany and Austria. Her 2014 CD recording of Franz Hummel’s Diabelli Variations (TYXart label, Germany) attracted immediate attention of music critics in Europe, Canada, and USA.  In France, Jean-Yves Duperron wrote: "...Russian pianist Angela Cholakian immediately commands attention by her unflinching technique and uncompromising mastery of the music at hand...," and he named Angela Cholakian “...a worthy successor to the art of Gilels and Richter..." (Classical Music Sentinel, October 29, 2014). Recent reviews and features include National Classical Music Radio Station in Poland and in May 2017, review of the 2016 CD recording of virtuosic works by Chopin, Liszt, Franz Hummel and Arno Babajanian in a well-known portal in Austria.
     
    A piano pedagogue with over 25 years of experience, Angela Cholakian has strong committment to the young generation of pianists. Today, she teaches as a Professor for Piano at Soochow University School of Music in China, because she is convinced that the best traditions of the past and her legacy must be passed on. She is a frequent guest at  the national and international masterclasses, lectures, teacher training programs and major piano competitions in China and abroad. 
     
    In the recent years, Angela Cholakian’s teaching approach drew attention in Europe, where she’s been repeatedly invited to perform and teach in several international summer festivals.  In August 2015, Dr. Cholakian’s students  received high critical acclaim in the newspapers and online media for their performances in the Athenaeum International Academy for the Performing Arts in Italy and in Sommerakademie Neuburg An Der Donau in Germany.  Angela Cholakian is frequently invited to perform in the prestigious international festivals. Her performances in the 2016 Shanghai International Piano Festival and the most recent 2017 Woerthersee Classics Festival in Austria, where great masters, such as Riccardo Muti and Vienna Philharmonic were guest performers, further attracted attention of the audiences and media to the charasmatic art of Angela Cholakian.

    钢琴 安吉拉·齐拉乾
    “她的演奏不禁让我联想起上世纪的伟大的俄国钢琴家们,尤其是吉列尔斯...”(Richard Todd, Wolfgang’s Tonic)
     
    具有“俄罗斯学派钢琴演奏”出身的Angela Cholakian博士,她的艺术造诣不仅涵盖了演奏,还囊括了教学。她出生并成长在俄罗斯,4岁开始学习钢琴,6岁时已经成为了音乐院校的学生,13岁便被座落于亚美尼亚的柴可夫斯基音乐学院天才班录取,同年的公开演奏也在那里引起了轰动,其中包括了李斯特降E大调钢琴协奏曲,肖邦F小调钢琴协奏曲,勃拉姆斯D小调钢琴协奏曲等。17岁时,Angela Cholakian开始在位于莫斯科的俄罗斯国立柴可夫斯基音乐学院学习并师从于传奇钢琴家、教育家Yevgeny Malinin(俄派奠基人之一Heinrich Neuhaus的最后一位助教)。Malinin对Angela的演奏有着极高的评价,称赞她是一位“...充满浪漫情怀、诗意、并富有激情和炫技性的钢琴演奏家...”。不仅如此,Cholakian博士也致力于演奏当代作品,并与当代作曲家们保持紧密的联系及合作,曾在音乐会中演奏了著名作曲家Arno Babajanian所有的钢琴作品。
     
    在移居美国之后,Angela在洛杉矶创立了教授俄国传统演奏学派的“柴可夫斯基学校”。在担任音乐学校总监的十多年里,许多包括柯蒂斯音乐学院与朱莉亚音乐学院在内的学生也曾慕名前来找她授课。在此期间内,Angela Cholakian也在美国获得了她的钢琴演奏博士学位(DMA)和屈指可数的最高艺术家文凭(Artist Diploma)。 
     
    Cholakian博士的演出足迹遍布世界各地。她所持有的音乐信念和激情造就了她非凡的技术。2014年,她所录制的著名当代作曲家Franz Hummel所创作的《Diabelli Variations》唱片一经在全球范围发行上市,便立刻引起了许多世界知名乐评家的广泛关注。在法国,Jean-Yves Duperron这样写到:“...俄罗斯钢琴家Angela Cholakian因她手指尖所流淌的精湛的音乐技巧,让人们情不自禁的被她的音乐所吸引...”,同时他也称赞Angela是“...传奇钢琴家吉列尔斯和李赫特名副其实的继承者...”(Classical Music Sentinel)。不久前Dr. Cholakian发行上市的最新唱片不仅收录了肖邦、李斯特的经典浪漫派作品,同时还收录了Franz Hummel和Arno Babajanian的现代乐作品。同时,她还担任了对作曲家Franz Hummel的第二钢琴奏鸣曲《催眠》的世界首演工作。她最新的CD好评如潮,更是不乏受到了如波兰国家广播电台、奥地利klassik-heute等的高度赞扬。
     
    作为拥有超过25年的钢琴教学经验的教育家,她曾执教于美国著名的南加州大学,她的学生多次获得国际比赛的冠军或被世界知名音乐学府录取。她一直致力于年轻一代钢琴家的培养,她认为好的钢琴演奏传统应该得以传承。与此同时,她经常作为特邀嘉宾出席世界范围的讲座、大师班和国际音乐比赛。
     
    近年来,Cholakian博士多次受到邀请在许多国际音乐节上进行演奏和教学授课。她的教学方法在欧洲引起了关注。在2015年8月,她的学生在位于意大利的Athenaeum国际音乐节和德国的Neuburg夏季音乐节中的精彩演奏获得了当地电视媒体和报社的高度赞扬。2016年,她受邀在上海国际钢琴音乐节的开幕式上与上海爱乐乐团合作演出柴可夫斯基第一钢琴协奏曲。2017年,她受邀于久负盛名的奥地利Woerthersee Classics音乐节(著名指挥家Riccardo Muti、维也纳爱乐乐团等都曾受邀在此演奏)。她在这里成功的举办了现代作曲家弗朗茨·胡莫的作品专场音乐会并获得观众和媒体的好评如潮。
     
    作为一名活跃于世界舞台的钢琴家,Cholakian博士正在进行其下一张唱片录制发行以及即将到来的音乐会的准备工作。
