Yannis Georgiadis: - Юля Куликова - талантливый пианист виртуоз

I met pianist Julia Coolikova during a master class that took place in Greece last June (2009). I heard her in a particularly demanding programme, with composers from the classical and romantic periods.  I also had the pleasure of performing with Ms. Collikova in a concert with chamber music works by Franck, De Falla, and Kreisler.

During the rehearsal process, I realized that I was in the company of an artist with impeccable technical schooling and utmost aesthetic criteria. She has absorbed with ease each and every musical style, and adapts immediately to the demands of every work.  I greatly appreciated her love and passion towards music, as well as her intense and thorough preparation.  She has high standards and irreproachable work ethic, and pursues her goals with conviction, perseverance and dedication.

It gave me great satisfaction to perform with Ms. Coolikova in such a challenging programme. Thanks to her acute sense of perception and her unique gift for communication, I believe Julia has the potential to become an outstanding chamber music partner, a solid and charismatic recitalist, as well as a remarkable interpreter of the great piano concertos.  I am certain that a brilliant career lies ahead of her, and that she will soon be considered one of the leading interpreters of her generation.
