Vicious Circle’ Trailers
‘Vicious Circle’ was composed by the Russian-born classical composer & pianist GéNIA,whilst spending her time in lockdown. In this composition, GéNIA hastried to re-create the sense of ‘search’ and ‘almost no way out’ feeling of the current situation, which haspenetrated our society then.
Having been captured in the lockdown, she started recording and producing her music by establishing a recording studio in her home, and 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 Chappel 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 triple-BAFTA award winner and six-time Emmy nominee, sound engineer Nigel Heath).
The composition was recorded on GéNIA’s Steinway piano which was built in 1932 (almost 90 years old). 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, BBC Radio Bristol, 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.
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.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.
As a performing artist GéNIA made a controversialand 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.
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.
