Concert pianist, composer and arranger Natalia Posnova transforms well-known rock songs into virtuoso piano compositions. Natalia was influenced by the music of Rachmaninoff, her mother's love for classical music and her father's obsession with rock and roll. Today she is an exceptional crossover artist who impresses with outstanding interpretations of both classic and contemporary music.
Queen guitarist Brian May went into raptures the first time he heard Natalia's classical adaptation of "Flash": "I have just 'discovered' Natalia Posnova. She is an amazing pianist and interpreter of songs. And I do not use this term lightly... I have seriously, in all these years, never seen or heard anything like this.
To see this amount of beauty, talent, innovation and pure bravura in one shot is astounding. You all have to see her interpretation of FLASH… but for now...enjoy...and marvel!"
As a child, Natalia attended the Rimsky-Korsakoff St. Petersburg State Conservatory and learned under the watchful eye of renowned piano teacher Asya Rubina. She also studied under the esteemed Professor Leonid Sinstev. It was also here that Natalia performed a breath-taking, award-worthy interpretation of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3. Her performance was so phenomenal that the highly respected Professor Arkádi Zenziper invited her to continue her studies under his direction at the "Carl Maria von Weber" College of Music in Dresden.
