AN ACCOMPLISHED composer and pianist from Weymouth releases a new album of modern classical music.
Tamara Konstantin is a talented romantic pianist and composer releasing her highly anticipated new album Resilience in November.
The classically trained pianist from Weymouth grew up in Georgia and built a successful career first as a TV presenter and then as a senior oil company executive before moving to Dorset and returning to music .
Her love of music came to the fore again when she complained to her husband about a piece of modern atonal music they had both listened to at a concert. Her husband challenged her to write something better and an intense period of creativity followed.
Tamara has now produced a new body of work combining original compositions of handcrafted melodies that showcase her piano technique and her ability to speak through music.
Produced in times of great global crisis, Tamara’s new album Resilience reflects the pain of confinement and is a personal message of love, hope and affection to the people and places closest to Tamara’s heart; several pieces evoke the anguish and isolation caused by the Covid-19 epidemic and the grief of not being able to see his son and his family. There are compositions that cleverly translate into music the beauty of his beloved county of Dorset and the natural beauty of places further afield, including references to his native land of Georgia.
Tamara said: “The melody and plaintive mood of this new work depicts a lived experience, of loss, anxiety and isolation, reflection and strength, drawn from the trials of life during the pandemic. I tried to evoke feelings that most of us will recognize, including a sense of loss and grief juxtaposed with the empowerment of love, hope, family and community.
Tamara’s first single from the album “Elixir of Life” will be available from October 5, and the full album will be released on November 5.
