Natalia Zolotariova inherited her piano professionalism as early as in the cradle. At first, there was a higher education in her home town Kharkiv, followed by Moscow postgraduate studies, the defense of the PhD dissertation and her performances in prestigious concert halls with challenging programmes. Today the students of the Associate Professor of Dnipro Conservatory Natalia Zolotariova achieve the highest awards at the International Piano Competitions. But when Natalia is at the piano herself, she looks like a student. Her muse, full of romantic feelings, conquers all the technical intricacies with ease. She can master everything: the brilliant improvisations of Liszt, the fiery Spanish temperament of de Fallia, the pompous heroism, mysterious and dreamy nostalgia, and, moreover, the graceful tempest of complex jazz constructions.
