“Some of the most sheerly beautiful playing I have ever heard”

Soundboard Magazine

Dear Friends,

I’ve launched a campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds for the production of my 5th album, dedicated to my daughter for her 8th Birthday: It’s about the touch.

A beautiful program with Chopin, Schubert, Satie, Albéniz, Debussy, Tárrega, Barrios, Albinoni and Vassiliev. Solo guitar and duo guitar and cello. 

I’ve already recorded everything in March. Only now, with all the concerts being cancelled, the budget to bring the album into production has disappeared.

Support the campaign on Kickstarter and get a presale copy of the CD, score of Chopin Valz nr. 7 with my fingering, online private tutoring, your name in the booklet, personal video recordings and more.

Please share with your friends! Thank you very much!

Irina Kulikova
