Artist Review: Nina Kotova

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Dynamic, innovative, with talent beyond every musical realm that Classical compositions can offer. This Russian masterpiece with some of the country’s most renowned musicians, including acclaimed Cellist Nina Kotova, really puts history into beautifully conducted and composed songs that has a five-star signature sound to the musical craft that emulates from this collection of beautiful compositions conducted by Vladimir Fedoseyev.

Each song represents a different mood and emotion that we hear and feel as well. From subtle measures to gradual buildups, we get an exploration of every angle that Nina Kotova displays throughout each measure with the Tchaikovsky Symphony adding to the spirituality and the perfect background that puts Kotova in the forefront; showcasing her dynamic and strong presence in every composition.

As a Classical music listener that’s familiar with Music Theory, this is music that speaks volumes to the ear. While each song uses similar formulas, they also offer up many different components and elements as well. What’s most noticeable about these songs are the differentiation among the progressions and tempos. While some stay subtle and soothing, others grasp onto more of an upbeat and bossa-nova type of feeling. And I believe that’s one of the defining factors of these compositions — feeling. Emotion. And the depth of how well put-together every song is. 

With a charismatic forefront from Nina Kotova backed up by the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Vladimir Fedoseyev, we have an all-star cast of Classical musicians that will soothe the soul, enamor the moods, and leave an everlasting impression on anyone that listens.
