Your finest touch, an enchanting start
Today’s love in tomorrow’s hearts
A tribute to those of us that cherish a thing of beauty in a stormy world. In a delightful combination of music and storytelling, master guitarist Irina Kulikova takes her audience on a personal journey.
Learning to play guitar from a cellist mother. Portraits of a childstar in post-communist Russia. A life-changing present from a Spanish master. Struggles in a free world. And a profound experience of what a Russian musician misses about Mother Russia today.
With breathtaking renditions of a.o. Bach, Scarlatti, Chopin, Albéniz, Barrios, Tárrega and some highly romantic Russian composers, Irina Kulikova shares a heartfelt message in concert halls and theatres around the world: It’s about the touch.
