Playful Talk with Yana Reznik is an exciting new production that invites audiences to engage with the most beloved stars of the classical-music world and discover the personal aspects of their sensational lives. Playful Talk is produced by the acclaimed and innovative pianist and entrepreneur Yana Reznik, at PianoForte Studios at 1335 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago IL 60605.
In conversation with some of Chicago’s and the world’s leading artists, Russian-born pianist, Yana Reznik, leads intimate discussions with artists about their experiences on stage and behind the scenes. The shows are interwoven with musical interludes, making each performance a unique opportunity to connect with our brightest classical music stars.
Here’s how it works:
In a live show that’s simultaneously broadcasted online, Yana invites guest artists to chat in a casual setting, not only about music but also their personal lives, hobbies and interests. For the first time, both live and internet audiences will really get to know the men and women behind the music in a fun, spontaneous way. Her guests then join Yana in music making, either prepared classical masterpieces or spontaneous improvisations. Audience members are encouraged to ask questions via Twitter (@playfultalk), which will be answered selectively after the performances.
The experience continues as Playful Talk attendees get an exclusive opportunity to dine with Yana and her guest artists immediately following each broadcast at Chicago’s Kurah Mediterranean Restaurant – the city’s cozy, highly regarded culinary niche at 1355 S. Michigan Ave.
The show is inspired by the thrill of live music, interviews, and personal communication with the purpose of sharing the wonders of the classical artists’ lives. Yana and her international guests create a new channel of communication between the classical stage and diversified contemporary generations — reaching a public beyond its studio audience through the integral broadcasting vision.
Playful Talk is supported by Chicago’s prestigious PianoForte Foundation and broadcast live on PianoForte’s YouTube Channel and Yana’s website
