Jennifer Thomas in an independent pianist, violinist, composer, and recording artist who is making her presence known in the world of music. She was recently named Classical Crossover UK's "Top Female Artist of the Year", and won "The Indie Award", Top 20 Editorial Pick of 2012, "Album of the Year" and "Artist of the Year" at the 2013 IMC Awards, as well as #1 ranked Album of the Year on music critic Michael Debbage's Favorites of 2012 List. She also won "Best Original Score for Documentary/Short Film" at the 2012 Hollywood Music in Media Awards. With a new album out that is quickly gaining attention, this is a woman on fire with a long career ahead of her.

Jennifer started playing the piano and violin at the age of five under the tutelage of her mother, Carolyn Southworth. She trained Classically at Brigham Young University—Idaho, where she obtained a music degree in Performing Arts/Piano Pedagogy. She won the silver medal in her university‘s concerto competition, performing Prokofiev‘s 3rd Piano Concerto – one of the most technically difficult concertos ever written for the piano. Jennifer has enjoyed many opportunities to perform, including being a featured concerto soloist with Salt Lake City‘s Murray Symphony on the MacDowell Piano Concerto No 2, performing in the Seattle Composer‘s Salon at Benaroya Hall, being a regular featured soloist at Seattle‘s historic Roosevelt Hotel, working with the Seattle Symphony, and performing as a violinist for the Oregon Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra. Jennifer also spent three years as a featured soloist for the Temple Square Concert Series on historic Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah.

While Jennifer spent many years studying and performing in the world of classical music, she didn‘t start composing her own original music until 2004, at the age of 26. Combining her classical background and her love for cinematic music, she managed to merge the two styles and create a “Classical Crossover” sound that is not only emotionally charged, but also technically impressive.

Wolfgang Leng - Musician, artist, music producer, photographer, poet!
Dortmund Artist Wolfgang Leng has been an established artist for quite a while now. Reaching anyone interested in fine arts through his oil and acrylic paintings as well as drawings is of great importance to Leng. However, Leng's creativity isn't limited to painting or drawing pictures - he also composes music, writes poems and is passionately involved with photography and digital arts. At the moment, he is finishing his first book. "My paintings tend to come out geometric, contemporary-modern, abstract, objective and realistic", says Leng describing his style, "sometimes even all at once in one painting". The manner in which an oil painting of his comes into being and his choice of colours are influenced by music, yet the technique he uses is always decided upon with the painting in mind. Leng has been able to gain a lot of experience and he has established himself as an artist doing projects, mounting exhibitions alone or with others and taking part in nation-wide as well as international competitions. He has found his style and is displaying a great deal of versatility, which his fans greatly appreciate. 

Many of his paintings take a lot of time to create and require much concentration and discipline. He draws upon everyday thoughts, dreams and wishes as well as political, social and erotic topics. His own experiences - positive and negative alike - can be found in his pictures. In the art scene Leng is called the "Master of Edges."

Beatriz Boizán
“She surprises by her sensitivity, her pianism and her incomparable and masterful sound"  – José Luis Turina (Spanish composer)

“Ms. Boizán is endowed with the skill of a virtuoso. Her playing is above reproach, a breath of a tropical breeze always swirling somewhere in the space between the score and Ms. Boizán’s performance.” -Renée Silberman, The Beat Magazine, London, Ontario 

“One of the brightest new lights in the classical world” – The Vancouver Sun

An exotic and deeply authentic musician in the Classical Music World today, Cuban-Canadian pianist Beatriz Boizán is admired for her vibrant personality, charismatic stage presence, unique musicianship and innate talent to deliver breathtakingly innovative performances of Spanish and Latin American music, a repertoire for which she was encouraged by the late Alicia de Larrocha.

Born into a musical family in Baracoa (Cuba), Ms. Boizán began her piano studies with her grandmother, Esclarecida Guilarte. An honours graduate from the National School of Music in Havana, she continued her music studies in Vancouver at the University of British Columbia, and obtained her Master in Music degree at the University of Alberta.

Her recent debut with the Ontario Philharmonic was followed by a performance with world renowned cellist Mischa Maisky at the New Classical 96.3FM Toronto Concert Lobby. Other recent appearances include London ON’s Aeolian Hall, Kitchener’s Registry Theatre, Toronto’s Gallery 345, the Kaslo Concert Society (BC), the Concert Association of Huntsville (ON), the Steinway Piano Gallery Toronto, and the McMichael Canadian Art Collection (Kleinburg). Future engagements will feature debut recitals at St. James’s Piccadilly in London (UK), the Arts & Letters Club of Toronto and Almonte Old Town Hall (ON).

Her debut CD, Pasión, on Galano Records, features Boizán playing 17 solo piano pieces written by some of her favorite Spanish and Latin American composers, a repertoire that has brought her great success since the beginning of her career. Her stunning, scintillating, passionate and moving interpretations are delivered with deep maturity, understanding and respect. Her performance of Danzas Argentinas by Alberto Ginastera at the Palacio de Festivales de Cantabria (1998) and Falla’s Ritual Fire Dance with Mischa Maisky in Toronto (2012) have been televised in numerous occasions by Radio Televisión Española.

Miss Boizán’s programs range from the graceful Baroque sonatas by Soler and Scarlatti to the rhythmically percussive compositions from Spain and Latin America along with the lyrical romantic works from the European standard piano repertoire. A rare combination of a vibrant, bubbly, highly skilled virtuoso and a beautiful rising star, Miss Boizán will dazzle you with her spectacular pianism and incomparable Cuban Pasión.

She currently resides in Ontario, where she is promoting her album Pasión. For more information about this artist, please visit her website

Greg Giacona, Instrumental · Modern Classical · Contemporary Jazz Pianist

Sounds Like: David Foster, Chopin, David Benoit, Dave Grusin Label: 777 Records Manager: Greg Giacona
Bio: Greg Giacona, Classical, Contemporary, Jazz Pianist. Born and raised in Texas, studied from a young age, with one goal in mind-to compose and perform great music for everybody to enjoy! Visit his state-of-the-art international music production studio too!

A Greece-based musician, Vasilis Ginos was born in Athens in the '60s. 
He started off playing keyboards in bands, most of which he co-founded. 
His influences were the big rock groups of the era, his classical training, a late infatuation with jazz and a solid local folk background. 

An early adopter of music technology he works in many diverse genres, most recent of which is classical crossover. 

“The piece effectively set the mood for an audience that was already hypnotized by his playing. Then, he went on with the controversial but undoubtedly beautiful and demanding chaconne by Bach. The rather long composition not only bewitched the audience but stated clear the stature of Flavio’s abilities as an interpreter.[...]Both compositions prompted the audience out of their seats to render a standing ovation to the young maestro. Flavio Sala has demonstrated to be a great guitar player and a musician. His uncanny abilities to play such ample repertoire are the best credentials to establish himself among the greatest players of our times. Flavio is regarded by Alirio Díaz (once the assistant to Andrés Segovia, the greatest classical guitarist ever) as “the new Paganini of the guitar”, an epithet that clearly states the international status of this guitarist who ironically hasn’t been appreciated yet in his native Italy due in part to the current trend of mediocre radio prog” -Leonardo Bigott

“Flavio Sala doesn’t hold back, in his playing or with his words. The multi-talented guitarist, who weaves his music between the classical guitar and world-music genres, is taking a stand on the current state of classical guitar...” -Dr. Matt Warnock - Flavio Sala on the Current State of Classical Guitar

"...One only has to listen to his two most recent outings to be convinced of such strong statement to find out it isn’t a mere comment or testimonial..." -Leonardo Bigott - FLAVIO SALA'S MI ALMA LLANERA & DE LA BUENA ONDA

"The new Paganini of the guitar" -ALIRIO DIAZ

- New composition “ Piano Piece Based on Fibonacci Sequence “ has became one of the most popular Berklee-related videos on YouTube with over 21,000 views. The sheet music was requested by thousands of people, including an Arizona based large piano studio where the tutor made the piece mandatory to learn. Ph.D. professors of various universities already made presentation of this piece as an innovation of music and mathematics.

Juan M. Gutierrez (Onem Boreal), Harvard graduate student has made a short film about my Guinness World Record attempt and my musical approaches on Berklee campus (also including the Fibonacci piece mentioned above). The film was seen by hundreds of people in Harvard.

Bence was featured numerous times on the most popular television channels (MTV Hungary, National TVs), newspapers in Hungary as a piano prodigy, Berklee student and Guinness Record holder.

He has started a creative collaboration with Istvan Ver, acoustic designer of the world’s major opera houses including New York, Sydney etc, who also had been working for the NASA.

Bence has also initiated a global musical project within the Berklee community which in their hope will likely to involve world-renown artists like Quincy Jones, John Mayer, Janet Jackson, Sting and more. The project is a part of Berklee’s very own Ubuntu movement and it is planned to be finished by the end of 2013. The group is currently in the process of making a documentary for the project on Berklee Campus. 
A campaign for the project will be initiated as well, beginning inside Berklee, then spreading towards colleges in the Boston area and finally all over the world. 
His motivation is to take the opportunities of this unbelievably talented international environment that is called Berklee in order to collaborate, create new, innovate, unify for a better world, make changes and he believes where all the nations represent themselves in music like here, everything is possible.

Remember, “We are human beings first and musicians second…”

Diane was a member of Elysium, which was previously profiled here.Elysium is a defunct vocal ensemble dedicated to expanding the boundaries of early music. The singers explore the intersection of early music with folk traditions and experiment with alternative forms of presentation.

The four American women first crossed paths in Europe through their work with the medieval vocal ensemble Sequentia. Their first project was the recording of Auvergne Chants (Decca Records), innovative contemporary arrangements of traditional French folk melodies. Elysium then turned its focus towards home, developing a program of American music, ranging from early shape note songs to the folk ballads of the Appalachian mountains. Since then, the singers have returned to the medieval music which brought them together.

I am a 49 years old musician from Turin, Italy. I studied piano and accordion. The passion for music was transmitted to m by my paternal grandmother.

I have first been fascinated and inspired by classical authors like Claude Debussy, Friedrich Chopin e Sergej Rachmaninov, then I developed a personal creativity getting close to the acoustic new age world, thus matching my classical studies and the modern sound.

The references to natural elements are many in my melodies, as I love living in full harmony with Nature and its vibrations. The sea is my main source for inspiration, with its passionate, natural forces always changing.

Eternal Love musical project is founded in 2013 by Konstantin Karpitsky (W&D Project). The idea was to make a project with music about Love :)

You can describre the genre of Eternal Love musi as chill out, ambient, new age, instrumental and electronic, but I prefer to call our music as Music of Love. This genre is more universal.

People Love music by Eternal Love: 1st album "Fable" and remix on Hydrogenio's "Solaris" are in the Beatport TOP 100 in chill out genre. But it's just the beginning. Love Empire become bigger and stronger every day :)

I know that there no words that can describe all deep feeling that music can touch. So, stop reading this, just play the Music of Love and enjoy the sound of Eternal Love! :)

From Russia, with Love! :)

'We live in a world gone mad. Absorbed in our first world dilemmas while across the globe our brothers struggle to stay alive. Whether it be famine, disease, greed or the blatant desensitation and murder brought about by war. We do not live as one but in a gargantuan divide that can only breed sadness. Where is the love for nature and our earth? To be immersed in our mother is the only way home. Until then, we must remember to love our fellow man and our families. There is passion with every breath we take and above all, there is always hope.' 

Musical styles: alternative, instrumental, ethereal, gothic, cross over, new age and organic. A strong contemporary framework fused with a love for classical and world music. Topics: environmental, social, humanitarian and spiritual. 

I am Nushin Brooke Alavi, and I believe music should be considered art; art as a free expression of emotion and thought. I create original music for the piano, which I began playing by ear at age 5. I have filtered out influences of other artists' music to the best of my ability by avoiding listening to it as much as possible, classical entirely, and by refusing to play the music of any other artist at any time for any reason. This is to ensure my music is not affected by the music of other artists; that there is no impression of their music left on mine, but it is its own pure creation.

I want my music to be pure.

I hold back on the terms compose and classical because I lack the technical and methodical means to require them. I don't write, I play by memory, and I'm not very knowledgeable in music theory.

I intend to collect your responses. I would like to know what thoughts you had and what emotions were evoked as you listened to my original music, as I use this information to improve.

I intend to cause an effect on thoughts and feelings by producing a strong, powerful piece of work. Thank you.

Furio Filoseta

As a child I was exposed to academic music by my father. In the car, the only approved station was Venezuela’s Radio Nacional, which aired academic music constantly. He liked this kind of music very much and was adequately proficient. So, every trip to the beach or to get groceries was a chance for him to convince me to never listen again to any other kind of music. He introduced me to names like Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Bach, Wagner and like a good Italian, I guess, his favorite Antonio Vivaldi. Particularly, upon hearing The 4 Seasons, he always made emphasis on the concepts of "atmosphere" and "imagery".

This is what, in time, I learned to call the Soundscape.

Perhaps because of this and because my very first record was "Fragile" by Yes, a gift from my ninth birthday, I identified myself squarely within Progressive Rock. Yes, ELP, Genesis, PFM, in short, the 70s, the golden era of prog. At the same time, I was also a technology fan. My first computer was a MITS Altair 8800, which I customized until its demise. Before starting my studies in Systems Engineering, I already had five computers, all primitive and all in need of attention.

Before starting my studies in Systems Engineering, I already had five computers, all primitive and all in need of attention.

Naturally, these two passions of mine would meet in synthesizers.

My passion for synths led me to electronic music, mainly those from the Berlin School: Schulze, Schmoelling, Franke, Baumann, Froese, in short, Tangerine Dream, but also Wendy (then Walter) Carlos and Isao Tomita.

It was precisely Tomita, interpreting one of my academic favorites, The Planets, who planted in me a concern that took many years to recognize and to address: Which is the real seat of artistic merit? Composition and Interpretation come to our mind quickly, but, what if we could sublimate the original intent of the composer? Is it that the artistic merit of a given composition, could be decoupled from the interpretation? What happens if you take the mathematics of a given composition and dress it in a completely different Soundscape? Is the product artistically meritorious?

To answer these questions, I embarked on this project: to render The Planets using only virtual instruments, fully in the digital domain, replacing the original Soundscape with my own, itself a tribute to the sound of famous synthesizers from the golden age of Prog.

I still have no answers because only in time they may be provided. Until then, I continue my search.
