 Our story

I have just finished a recording for my new CD in a fantastic newly built Steppenwolf Studio with the a most experienced sound engineer and a great musician Slava Poprugin. The works of Scriabin, Debussy, Ravel and Mompou were played on a beautifully restored 115-year-old Bechstein. The idea of this project is to recreate the sound aesthetic of the great Bechstein epoche which has come to an end together with the end of World War II. Our aim is to preserve that distinctive warmth and richness of tone which is missing in many contemporary concert pianos. The capacity of Steppenwolf studio seemed to be ideal for this. This instrument has so much character so it can profoundly influence your interpretation. I cannot wait for the final mix!
My warmest gratitude to Slava Poprugin and Alex Koshkarov for the friendly and welcoming atmosphere which made a difficult recording process a very pleasurable experience!

Equipped with the most advanced technique and quality of sound engeneering the heart of the studio is of course Slava with his enormous experience both as a musician and sound regisseur. He really puts all his energy to get the musically best possible result and wants to understand the aim of the musicians.

There is a very special atmosphere in the studio - creative, highly professional and very welcoming in the same time. I would not be able to wish for more. One can dive into the process of making music and documenting performance so deep in there... And yes - it is "always open"!
