Dear friends of music and art,

On Saturday, September 14, 2019, the vernissage of the artist Victor Shtivelberg took place, which presented his exhibition “Watching and Listening“.

Before that there was once again a wonderful guitar concert by Veronika Mushkina, who studies under Prof. Alexander Ramirez at the Musikhochschule Düsseldorf.
Pieces by P. Ximenez, J.S. Bach, A. Barrios and several other artists could be heard. It’s amazing how wonderful the transcribed version of Bach’s BWV 998 prelude fits the guitar. Thus, she skillfully accompanied the meditative mood, which is also found again and again in the works of the artist. Equally interesting were the compositions of the two Russian composers Nikita Koshkin and Sergei Rudnev, who wrote interesting and very demanding works. This mixture of meditation and technically demanding works continued in the other works, which hijacked the audience into a South American flair.
An excellent performance, which was celebrated with great applause!

I would like to thank Veronika Mushkina and of course Victor Shtivelberg and his wonderful family for this very successful exhibition opening!

You can find out more about Victor Shtivelberg’s exhibition here.

Dear friends of music and art,

It’s that time again! The Musicstudio opens its doors to introduce you to the artist Victor Shtivelberg. Born in the Ukraine and now living in Germany (Lindau am Bodensee), the artist has been active since 1987 and has made a name for himself internationally beyond his original home. With his exhibition “Watching and Listening” he now celebrates his debut in Bonn!

Of course, the musical part should not be missing and so there is in advance again a guitar concert by Veronika Mushkina. Born in Russia, the musician has been playing music since she was five years old, and at the age of 11 she began to specialize in classical guitar. She is currently studying at the Robert Schumann University under Prof. Alexander Sergei Ramirez in Düsseldorf.
