‘Mon Amour’ Home Version was re-composed, re-recorded, and produced by the Russian-born classical composer & pianist GéNIA, while in lockdown. It’s her message to her fans in these difficult times, to show that love always prevails over the hardships of life.
Originally ‘Mon Amour’ was released in 2014 on GéNIA’s EP ‘Dreams of Today, Thoughts of Tomorrow’ Volume 2. Since then, this composition has attracted a lot of attention, from a very emotional response from her live audience (especially when performing it in France), to numerous online comments and requests for the sheet music of this composition.
Spending her time in lockdown, GéNIA decided to re-create this composition, as well as record it at her own home on her beloved Steinway, which was built in 1932. This is also GéNIA’s debut as a producer, as she recorded and mixed the track herself. Since having been captured in the lockdown, she started recording and producing her music by establishing a recording studio at home, learning recording and production skills, based on her personal experience as a recording artist (in the past GéNIA has recorded albums for Universal Production Music, released on Chappell Label, Nonclassical Label, run by Gabriel Prokofiev, Black Box Label, with the multi-Grammy nominated record producer Chris Craker, and her own label, GéNIA MUSIC, working with the double-BAFTA award winner and six-time Emmy nominee, sound engineer Nigel Heath).
Known for her tendency to embrace and communicate with her audience at her concerts, as well as on social media, GéNIA decided to release this new version of ‘Mon Amour’, especially for Valentine’s Day. She will be inviting her fans to share pictures with their loved ones (these could also include photos with their pets!) and the resulting video will be published on Valentine’s Day on her Instagram and YouTube.
Mastering has been done by the award-nominated engineer Cicely Balston at AIR Studios.
Described by The Times as “an outstanding musician”, an enigma of the music world, Russian-born concert pianist turned composer-yogi, GéNIA, recently enjoyed success with her new compositions by releasing her latest solo piano album ‘Babylon’ alongside several sold-out London shows, whilst her music enjoyed placements in the critically acclaimed BBC America TV Series ‘Killing Eve” (starring Sandra Oh) and well-known British ITV Series ’Cold Feet”.
GéNIA’s music compositions can be heard on Classic FM, Scala Radio, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3, BBC London Radio 94.9, BBC World Service. London News TV Channel, Talk Radio, BBC Wales Radio, to name just a few, as well as Caffé Nero branches worldwide (as GéNIA is Caffé Nero’s featured classical artist) and also in various TV series and adverts.
Described by Gramophone magazine as “a charismatic pianist”, GéNIA is known for her enthralling stage presence. She comes from a distinguished line of Russian pianists and was taught by her great-grandmother, the renowned pedagogue Regina Horowitz, the sister of pianist Vladimir Horowitz. Later she gained scholarships to The Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Trinity College of Music in London.
GéNIA made her London debut as a concert pianist in the Park Lane Group Young Artist Series, which was followed by concert tours in the UK, Europe and USA. London venues include Wigmore Hall, Barbican, Southbank Centre, Olympia, Kings Place, St. John’s Smith Square and St. Martin in the Fields. GéNIA’s recordings and live interviews are regularly broadcast on BBC TV and Radio including BBC London Radio and BBC Proms.
As a performing artist GéNIA made a controversial and pioneering move away from the classical concert platform for a number of years. As an innovative composer and performer who crossed over into the world of pop music, she has collaborated with an eclectic range of artists, producers and composers including Gabriel Prokofiev, Howard Skempton, the Brodsky Quartet, Andy Sheppard, Jason Yarde, multi-Grammy nominated record producer Chris Craker, the double BAFTA award winner and six-time Emmy nominee sound engineer Nigel Heath, as well as dance producers Germ, Vex'd, Kreepa and The Early Man.
GéNIA’s recorded music career to date has seen the release of several ground-breaking records of contemporary music on Blackbox, Nonclassical, Chappel Label, run by Universal Production Music, and her own label, GéNIA MUSIC.
Breaking classical music traditions, GéNIA’s concerts often take the form of a show, rather than a classical concert, as she loves to connect with her audience, making the experience very personal to them.
Following her passion for yoga, GéNIA took two years from her performing career to train as a qualified yoga teacher, gaining a BWY (British Wheel of Yoga) teaching diploma. She developed Piano-Yoga® method, publishing her book, numerous video courses and establishing Piano-Yoga® Studio in London. The method was widely featured in the music press, and was described as ‘The 21 century answer to playing the piano’ by Yoga and Health Magazine, as well as being vouched for by Piano Professional: ‘It really does work. Many pianists have been helped with this unorthodox and unusual method’.
In her compositions Piano-Yoga® manifests through the atmosphere it transmits to her listeners: from relaxation and meditation to a deep range of emotions, her music stirs core feelings in her audience, helping then to connect with their inner self. GéNIA’s music evokes grounding especially needed in the current climate, where mindfulness is a key to survival in our current difficult reality.
