Testimonials Private Concerts

"In March 2013, we were pleased to host the concert of the pianist Irina Lankova in the Castle of La Sarraz for a musical event for a few Russian-speaking guests. Gathered in a room of the Castle around the piano, we enjoyed the recital full of finesse and poetry. The concert was unanimously appreciated and we all had the pleasure of talking with the pianist at the dinner that followed. An evening that everyone will remember for long time! "

"At the famous Salle Gaveau in Paris American Express offered its cardholders access to a unique musical performance: a piano recital of Irina Lankova, a rising star of her generation. Combining a deep, passionate and free playing with accuracy and remarkable style, she brings togetherthe legacy of the Russian school of piano and Western musical culture. This private party was an opportunity for guests to the famous "titanium card" to rediscover great works of classical music, performed by the Russian virtuoso. After the "food for soul", the guests had a pleasure to meet personally Irina Lankova during a delicious cocktail party by Champagne Veuve Clicquot . A highlight in which the artist did not hesitate to take time to discuss with them directly. So many magical moments that made this evening rich with emotions for holders of American Express Centurion "

"We had an opportunity to work with Irina on the occasion of four classical concerts where we invited about a hundred of our clients each time.

It’s very rare that we had such a unanimous opinion from our guests about the quality of a concert.
The word that was mostly quoted is generosity. Irina likes to explain her music and that aspect was much appreciated by our guests.

Nothing but thanks for these events, and what a pleasure to reach the hearts of our clients in that way. Our commercial aims were perfectly fulfilled during these events.

Thank you Irina!"

"We asked Irina Lankova to play a programme of Chopin, Schubert and Rachmaninov for a party to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary.

She performed with such grace, elegance, romanticism and feeling that she captivated the whole audience during the entire 45 minute recital, demonstrating not only the versatility of the keyboard but also her own dexterity. Several of our guests considered it to be one of the finest piano recitals they had ever heard."

"We were very lucky to find Irina Lankova and to employ her for our anniversary celebration in a beautiful setting and  in presence of our friends and family. Irina played with abundance of talent and sensibility, of grace and grande virtuosity.  She left her audience completely enthusiastic."

M. et Mme Wyss, Monaco

"We engaged Irina Lankova for various concerts in our house. Our friends were spoiled those days! As much as we were! How wonderful it is to listen to great live music in your own home…

We admired mostly the force and the fluidity in her playing, and from the result of her hard work, a technical perfection combined with emotion…”

Muriel Nacar

"Having seen her in concert on several occasions when living in Brussels I engaged Irina to play a surprise private concert for my mother’s 70th Birthday.

Irina worked particularly hard to assist me with the organisation of the venue and piano and to help me keep the surprise. My mother was spellbound by Irina’s music and her recital of a number of her favourite pieces.

It was a priceless gift for someone who loves piano but it was made immortal for my Mum by Irina’s beautiful playing and charming courtesy."

Peter Haynes

"We were lucky enough to host a private concert with Irina Lankova back in 2009. She was fantastic, her music was exquisite and flowed through our 19th Century manor enticing diners to listen from the hall ways.

A very talented performer!"

Marc Hayton
MD and Owner of Foxhills Country Golf Club, Surrey, UK

"Irina played a private concert to celebrate a milestone birthday. This was arranged by my wife knowing that, for me, this would be a very special experience. The anticipation has heightened having heard Irina play at Wigmore Hall, London where she captivated one of the world's most critical audiences.

In both the private and public concerts she played from the European romantic repertoire of Chopin and Schubert complementing this with Rachmaninov. Irina can find the truly intimate moments in these works but the full dynamic range is fully explored with very assured playing.

Irina approached the private concert very professionally and for anyone who loves this kind of music there can be few more enriching experiences than having it played, just for you, by someone so gifted."

Paul Becksmith
Surrey, UK

"I had an opportunity to attend a few concerts by Irina Lankova in the past. Being musical and able to rapidly estimate the high professional quality of Mrs Lankova, I then initiated the organisation of two piano concerts at the Royal Military School (Brussels), in order to promote it to the outside world and to raise money for its charities.

The 1st concert took place in May 2003, and following its success, the 2nd one was organised in May 2005.

I recommend Irina without hesitation. Her perfectionism, her professionalism and her charisma make her a talented musician who is also very serious and reliable for this sort of events."

Patrice Laurent
Brigadier General (BEL-AF), Deputy Director EAG

"As part of a series of piano concerts in Admiral Gjeddes Gaard, Jeanne and I had the great pleasure of presenting Irina Lankova for our friends in a performance of piano pieces by Rachmaninov, Chopin and Beethoven. We are very struck by her temperamental yet delicate playing and, in particular, all very deeply moved by Irina's rendition of Beethoven's Appassionata. If you ever have the chance to hear Irina play live, don't miss it!"
