Trombone and Piano Concert

Cyprus : Trombone and Piano Concert

An afternoon family concert for trombone and piano will take place at Windcraft Music Centre on Sunday, 24th of November, at 6pm. The established, multiple award winner and popular pianist Tatiana Stupak and the destinguished Moldovan trombonist Igor Babcinetchi will present a repertoire of solo piano works and pieces written for trombone and piano. This is a unique opportunity for the whole family to enjoy a classical music programme and meet one of the most beautiful instruments of the brass family – the trombone.

The programme will include works for trombone and piano by Albeniz, Gröndahl, Guilmant, Saint-Saëns and others, as well as solo piano works by Bach, Beethoven and Chopin.

About the artists

Igor Babcinetchi (trombone) graduated from the School of Music in his native Moldova, initially on the trumpet. Soon he found his way to the trombone when he went on to study at the College of Music in Tiraspol and later at the University of Arts in Chisinau, from where he graduate in 2001. During his studies, Igor had already won a seat in the National Philharmonic Orchestra.

Throughout his career, music has quite literally taken Igor around the world and influenced his tastes in music and style of playing. He has played in a fiesta band in Spain, was Musical Director of a touring circus orchestra in Germany, has held a seat in the Romanian National Opera in Bucharest, and has been in the theatre orchestra on board different cruise ships. Thus, he got to broaden his range by playing many different musical genres such as jazz, classical, cabaret and show music. He has been fortunate enough to collaborate with the Moldovan National Opera, the Moldovan National Chamber Orchestra, the Romanian National Philharmonic, and the National Television and Radio Orchestra in Bucharest.

Following cruise ships, Igor relocated to London, and became a freelance musician, broadening his repertoire further, by playing in big bands, brass ensembles and salsa bands, as well as all the contemporary classics as part of function bands. He has supported a number of touring West End shows, including ‘Summer Holiday’ and ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie.’ Igor got his first taste of teaching in London, passing on his knowledge and experiences to students of all ages. He has recently moved to Limassol to continue his career as a freelance musician and teacher of the trumpet and trombone.

Tatiana Stupak (piano) started learning the piano at age five, studying at the Special School of the Rimsky-Korsakov State Conservatory in St. Petersburg, and after that, for a further five years, continuing at the Conservatory itself. She is the winner of international music competitions, including the Leipzig Bach competition, and has performed in Austria and Germany as well as in Russia.

Tatiana is now based in Cyprus, where she is well known, having played many times in the last few years, in Larnaca, Limassol, Nicosia, Paphos, and at Kourion Ancient Amphitheatre, both as a solo pianist and accompanying other musicians. Since 2015, she has played the piano at more than 60 events, including her participation with piano solos at The Big Choir Project concerts. She arranges charity concerts for children and for the church, and brings famous musicians from Russia, for example from the Bolshoi Theatre.

In 2018, Tatiana won awards on being chosen in competition, as Russian Cultural Woman of the Year in Cyprus. In the same year, she opened the Tatiana Stupak School of Music for piano and other instruments, and for teaching music subjects; the teachers are prize-winning professionals. Students can enter for international examinations and they are encouraged to take part in public concerts, to gain experience in performing before audiences.
In the summer of 2019, having organised fund-raising concerts on several occasions for the Institute of Neurology and Genetics, she was invited to play piano solos at a concert at the Presidential Palace, where President Anastasiades presented her with an award on behalf of the Institute.

*The same concert will be repeated on 29th November at Technopolis 20 in Paphos.
