We were excited to welcome the return of pianist and composer Sergei Dreznin to New York, with whom AG Contemporary Art and Alexandre Gertsman have enjoyed a long-lasting collaboration – starting with Mr. Dreznin premiering his VICTORY OVER THE SUN musical at the Cultural Festival, organized by Mr. Gertsman at the Center for Jewish History in New York. A graduate of the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow (as a composer) and the Russian Academy of Music (as a pianist), Sergei has many awards and prizes and has become well-known through his collaboration with violinist Gidon Kremer, his unusual interpretations and new version of classic piano works, and his own highly original approach to music theater with 14 shows produced, ranging from musicals on original Shakespeare texts to revival of Cabaret from Ghetto Terezin, with the CD of his Off-Broadway production released in 2016. Sergei has been enjoying a successful international career: his blockbuster CATHERINE THE GREAT – a Russian musical epic - is in its 10th sold-out year in Russia and was nominated for the Golden Mask – a Russian Tony award - in 7 categories (and won 2); his 24 HOURS IN THE LIFE OF A WOMAN based on a Stefan Zweig classic novella was originated in 2015 in Paris in Theater La Brouyere, and now is being produced in Spanish, while his directorial debut – the children’s musical GELSOMINO! was presented at The Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow.
