"Elisaveta Blumina is an excellent musician who loves to take on challenges of the piano literature and to master them with conviction. Her curiosity leads her to explore the repertoire and to continuously create and initiate new projects. I am very impressed by the pioneering role she played in the re-discovery of Mieczyslaw Weinberg, Grigory Frid and other composers of the XX century. Not to mention her many other activities regarding all aspects of the solo-piano and chamber music. Transcending the boundaries of music, Elisaveta Blumina has also become a remarkable painter. In her paintings she successfully translates musical images into the colours and visual shapes she associates with them (the phenomenon of synaesthesia). Elisaveta Blumina is a gifted communicator who often looks for novelty but is always very conscious of and aspires to high standards of quality in both performance and artistic communication. I find her an excellent mediator and a truly outstanding artist."
