Review of Alexandra’s Piano Recital at the “Farley Music Festival” organized by Nicholas Walker in June 2015

“Alexandra Vaduva, a final year Masters student at the Royal Academy, gave the second piano concert. She has a prestigious career developing as a recitalist and has won many prizes in notable competitions. Her programme at Farley included music by Bartok, Schoenberg, Janá?ek, Schubert and Stravinsky. It was wonderful to hear how some relatively rarely heard music made perfect sense in her hands, especially the nostalgic and at times anguished suite of pieces entitled On an Overgrown Path by Janá?ek. Her concert ended with the incredibly virtuosic arrangement of Petrushka made by Stravinsky for Rubinstein (who initially refused to play it because of its extreme technical demands). There were no problems for Alexandra, who produced an amazing and exciting performance to the delight of the audience at Farley.” – Richard Godfrey
