“Fragments” for piano | Spring 2022
“Fragments” is a set of thirteen piano vignettes written between 2019 and 2021 as a continuous narrative, reflecting on the different aspects of contemplation: poetic, emotional, meditative, melancholic and restrained. Also, “Fragments” bridges two cities that became central in my life: London and Saint-Petersburg. Each movement written in one of them and almost every piece carries images and mood of these cities that are so dear to my heart.
A few pieces have direct relation to works of composers I have always admired and grown up with. “Prelude” and “Lament” inspired by Ravel’s short pieces and “Pavane” employs theme from his “Ma mère l’Oye” pavane. “Pastorale” draws the mood and setting from Aaron Copland’s pastorale piano works. “Waltz” and “Elegia” inspired by Debussy’s early compositions. “Novelette” is directly related to Sergey Banevich’s “Mermaid” children’s album and pictures Baltic Sea waves and west wind blowing over the waters.
Released on Oclassica label.

Blue Hour | Spring 2020
Two-part piano poem written together with Elena Oleynik. Consists of two inter-related pieces: “Dusk In My Window” (by Elena Oleynik) and “Tilted Shadows” (by Tamas Szigyarto). “Dusk In My Window“, which is part of Oknovokean (piano + viola duo) repertoire, was specifically re-worked by Lena for this duo project. Whereas “Tilted Shadows” is an answer piece written to reflect on the original motif of the “Dusk” picturing the bright side and hope of the original A minor theme and ends in the A major key.
