Artist Short Bio:
Described by the music critics as "exceptional, entrancing, fun!" (Harry Rolnick, ConcertoNet.com), "a fully formed and fearsomely talented pianist" (Steve Holtje, CultureCatch.com) and "bold, dynamic, magnificent" (Harris Goldsmith, NY Concert Review"), "Bulgarian-born piano dynamo" (Steve Smith, Time Out NY) Tania Stavreva is "a unique pianist, combining genuing quality with a refreshing approach to programing." (Bachtrack.com UK) and "one of a new breed of self-sufficient young classical musicians... hands of great skill and power, electric flair and colorful musicality." (Jon Sobel, BlogCritics.com). She is recognized as one of the most versatile young artists of her generation, renowned internationally for having some of the most precise fingering of any of the twenty-something generation of pianists, bar none (Mark Greenfest, SoundWordSight Arts Magazine), for her "superior technical abilities", "unlimited virtuosity", "personal sensitivity difficult to find elsewhere", and "huge dynamic range" combined with "demanding and diversified programs. Her "masterfully delivered" (San Francisco Chronicle) performance of the "White Lies for Lomax" (Winner of the 3rd Van Cliburn American Composers International Competition) by Mason Bates, released on Innova Recordings is a stunning display of intricate blues playing and a highlight of the recording (Karl Ackermann, All About Jazz CD Review), where Ms. Stavreva is among artists such as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
