NEW RELEASE (iTunes,
What would it be if you made a piano sound like a harp? What an enchanting, dreamy vibration could it produce, a dreamy escape, a touch of fantasia.
Last summer I had the exciting privilege to meet a very special person - David Klavins, the creator of two unique pianos: The Giant and Una Corda. A gentle power and a shimmering dream. An old wise ocean and a sweet youthful fantasia. Northern Lights and Eternal Rainbow. I am trying to find the right words to express it as I literally got lost when I touched The Giant and Una Corda. I was trapped in the fairy tale where elves are playing their magical harps in a Shimmering Forest.
When I came back to reality, the enchantment followed me all the way home and I let it touch the keys and create its magic, loving and improvisational, romantic and jazzy. This is how Una Corda Fantasia album was born. For you to listen and enjoy the dream.
These days David is building the new Giant, a new incredible piano. You can be a part of it by buying “Una Corda Fantasia” - all the proceeds from the online sales will be donated to support the creation of the new Giant. Thank you and enjoy the music!
The album is available on: iTunes, Amazon MP3, CDBaby, BandCamp, Spotify.
Reviews: Kathy Parsons.

I have a special love for Tchaikovsky, especially, for his series of Seasons. Here is a little bit belated “March”. Though, here in Canada we are having a “second winter”,
so it feels pretty much like March at the middle of April. Hope you’ll enjoy my performance.

Surprisingly, I was introduced to this song only a year ago and immediately fell in love with it.
I knew I’d cover it one day and it feels to be the most appropriate day today to share it with you.
I hope you’ll enjoy this duet version of this romantic song by John Legend.
Many thanks to Andrei Dreamspark for singing this song with me so beautifully and to my husband for the audio recording and shooting this video.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

I had the pleasure of visiting Steinway Piano Gallery Ottawa a couple of weeks ago.
Enjoy this casual improvisation on my own song captured by Mitchell Wright.

I got an absolutely fantastic New Year present from my husband - NATIVE INSTRUMENTS’s KOMPLETE Ultimate!
He also got Pro Tools for himself in addition to the Propellerhead’s Reason that we had before.
This soundtrack is our first attempt to use both tools: for composing and production.
Lots of things to learn, the possibilities are truly overwhelming!
The instruments used on this track include two of my favorite pianos: The Giant and Una Corda.
The video is a quick collage of royalty-free stock clips to accompany the soundtrack.
