Isabel Anders (piano) and Biliana Vouchkova (violin & voice) – Konzertreihe zeitgenössischer Improvisationsmusik

Isabel Anders (piano) and Biliana Vouchkova (violin & voice) – Konzertreihe zeitgenössischer Improvisationsmusik

Die Konzertreihe „Piano + one“ ist von Roman Stolyar kuratiert.

The “Piano +1” project is a concert series of improvised music presenting acoustic duets with a piano. Improvising pianists are invited to participate in the program, each of them chooses a partner (an acoustic instrument or voice).

Isabel Omara Espichicoque Anders is a German/Cuban pianist, composer,
and improviser based in Berlin. She began her piano studies in a music
school at age 6. Isabel continued her education, studying with the
pianists Prodromos Symeonidis and Vladimir Tropp, eventually leading
her to the decision to focus on her own composition and unique
approach to improvisation, rather than aspiring to become a classical
pianist. This decision led Isabel to explore a wide variety of art
forms, and to further her studies, taking classes with Sascha
Dragićević and Stefan Streich, focusing on composition and
contemporary music. In 2019 she released her first soundtrack album
with orchestral elements, electronics and voice related to the book:
„Les Fleurs du Mal“, written by Charles Baudelaire. After she wrote
several pieces for piano and small ensembles. Isabel’s intention with
improvisation is to conduct a musical dialogue with the other
performers, and to let ideas and inspiration from various sources and
art forms merge in a non-elitist manner into a timeless form of

She plays Solo and Ensemble concerts in Berlin, Japan, London, Hamburg

Biliana Voutchkova is a dynamic, thoroughly engaged interdisciplinary
artist, violinist, composer-performer, improvisor and curator with
highly individual, unconventional artistic language. Through the prism
of listening, her early training in classical music and the years of
development as contemporary artist-performer, she explores states of
spontaneity and intuitive resonance embodied in her multifaceted
activities. Her work spans the widest possible range of sound, vision,
movement and includes concert performances of improvisation,
contemporary composition and original site specific work, exhibitions,
long durational / multidisciplinary performances, audiovisual works
and installation formats with focus on the interconnection between
inner world and sound space.
Biliana works internationally as a soloist and in collaboration with
many renowned artists and ensembles (the Splitter and Trickster
Orchestras and Ensemble Modern among others). She is the founder and
curator of the DARA String Festival, faculty at the Academy of Arts
Bern/HKB Bern, SHAPE+ Platform artist for 2022/2023, co-founder and
member of Voutchkova/ Thieke duo, Jane in Ether and the Land Stages
Collective, and a recent recipient of the Berlin Residency Stipend at
Cité des Arts / Paris, Villa Aurora in Los Angeles, the Composition
Stipend from the Berliner Senate, grands from INM/Berlin, Musikfonds,
the National Culture Fund/Bulgaria and the Trust for Mutual
Understanding/New York.
