Reviews on my concerts:
Piano Concert “Svetlana Rudenko followed with a power-packed account Liszt’s supreme Sonata in B minor that revealed no inhibiting concerns for the practicable or even the physically possible…” (Andrew Johnston, Irish Times, National Concert Hall Dublin)

Personal Statement: For many years I worked as a piano teacher, and I see Music and Arts as a wonderful way to enhance creativity. Music is a great way to connect and celebrate International cultural heritage of humanity. Music is a personal journey to connect to your inner self. My PhD research on symbolist synaesthete composer A. Scriabin inspired me to take his model of multisensory drama Mysterium to embrace Audio-Visual perception of Music. I play concerts with visuals to show how wonderful our minds could be, and how we can choose the “reality”, consciousness where we want to be.
I am delighted to be in this team to celebrate the diversity of perceptions, cultures and people!
