Alena Cherny Piano










The Ukrainian born pianist Alena Cherny found her own way to music. As a passionate pianist, she studied at the Tchaikovsky Concervatoire in Kiev and then pursued solo studies at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik in Freiburg im Breisgau, graduating in each case with flying colours. Extensive recital tours in the USA, in England, Israel, Germany, Italy, Austria and Japan made her name known in the leading music centres of the Western world. She won the Chapeau price in 2007. Today Alena Cherny lives in Switzerland, where in addition to her soloist’s career she focuses on chamber music. Her music partners are Fabio Di Càsola, Clarinet since 2004 and Ilya Grubert, Violin since 2009. Her interpretations are marked by narrative freedom, a close dialogue with the audience and the unconditional striving to rediscover the work of music time after time.
