On Sunday, 13 August 2017 at 8:00 p.m. at the new open-air platform VDNH Green Theatre. Stage on the Water within the framework of the Neoclassics project, a concert will be given by the rising star Nikola Melnikov and Fyodor Biryuchev. Also performing within the framework of this project, will be the well-known Pavel Karmanov (20 August).
Nikola Melnikov is a neoclassic composer and electronic producer from Moscow. For 20 of 24 years, he has been professionally performing on the piano. His first album made it onto the list of the world's Top-100 in iTunes. In 2015, Melnikov presented #technopiano — a live grand piano and digital performance. Each set is a half-improvisation, and develops within the atmosphere of each place in absolutely different ways.
Nikola performed and created the sound design for the opening ceremony of the finals of the World Chess Championship in New York (2016), Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris AW 15/SS 16, Zahi Hadid Gala Dinner at the State Hermitage in St. Petersburg, and many more private and public events for the world's most famous brands.
In 2017, Nicola relaunched his musical career with a new electronic live show, using his own vocals, performing at the Stockholm City Hall in Sweden with the audio-visual installation of "Cognition", in collaboration with the graphic design agency Radugadesign.
On 13 August, Nikola will perform, with an orchestra composed of his friends, works from the first album #22 (2015), as well as from a new acoustic programme, the album that should be released next year and will be devoted to the theme of travel — the second incredible passion of the composer, right after music.
