Wednesday, April 3, 2013

[Visiting Artists: Ranko Markovic and Marialena Fernandes Lecture/Recital, Piano]
Marialena Fernandes was born in Bombay but has made Vienna her second home. Fernandes has performed all over the world and is currently a professor of chamber music at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna (since 2005). Alongside her strong affinity with the Viennese classical and romantic periods, she is also a prominent performer of contemporary music and of modern arrangements and improvisations. She has developed a particular fondness for crossover between classical, pop and jazz.

Ranko Markovic, artistic director of the  City of Vienna's Konservatorium Wien University was born in Zagreb/Croatia. He graduated from the University of Music and Dramatic Arts Mozarteum Salzburg and completed his studies at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow and in London. Recent lectures, masterclasses and performances include institutions such as the Musikverein in Vienna, the Philharmonic Hall in St. Petersburg and the Shanghai Conservatory.
Fernandes and Markovic have been performing as a four-hand piano duo since 2000. Their performances of transcriptions of Symphonies by Mahler and Bruckner in Vienna, London, India, Poland, Italy, and Kazakhstan received special acclaim.
