Pianist and composer Renara Akhundova will give a solo concert at the "Rossotrudnichestvo" agency office in the UK, London on March 9, Azertac reported.
Born in Baku, Renara Akhoundova grew up in a family of intellectuals in a culturally mixed environment - Russian culture together with her native Azerbaijani.
The pianist debuted on the piano at the age of three years and showed exceptional musical talent from the start.
"Mother was taking private piano lessons which I always attended in a corner of the room. One day I approached the piano and sat down to play melodies I had heard as a child. Of course my parents rushed in amazement at the piano teacher! We replied that I was certainly talented, but the teachers in the crowd felt I was too young to start the systematic study of music. For this reason I began studying music only at the age of five years,” says the musician.
Later, Renara began serious musical training at the Central Music School of Uzeyir Hajibeyli Music Academy where she studied for 11 years.
After she graduated from the University of Economics and Political Science in Moscow she moved to Paris.
In February 2007 Renara gave her first-ever performance in the Baltic capital Tallin, Estonia. In recent years Renara performed on numerous occasions in Russia, Kuwait, the United States and a number of European countries.
Renara continues to compose and improvise new works constantly, and is ready to record a new album in October 2016. Invitations are being accepted for live performances world-wide for late 2016 and all of 2017.
Her live performances are an unbelievable experience - at once powerful and delicate, intense and soothing, uplifting and introspective.
