Piano Talks is a TV series hosted by celebrated pianist Janara Khassenova, the artistic adviser and jury member of NTD’s International Piano Competition.
Piano Talks presents an intimate experience with classical music while offering insights into the greatest composers alongside exclusive repertoires from NTD’s International Piano Competition. Its mission is to promote traditional arts of pure authenticity, goodness, and beauty with piano masterpieces from the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic periods.
We would like to share with you our first Piano Talks episode: Becoming Beethoven.
Beethoven’s music is anything but static, and neither was the composer’s mind. We begin the series by meeting a young Beethoven—with a rarely heard piece that he used to introduce himself back in the day—soon to develop into the image of the genius we all remember.
