Artist Profile

Sherlock Holmes always looks annoyed when the world around him seems complacent at the obviousness of the plot once he has unravelled it. It can somehow be debilitating that genius is late if at all recognised especially when it has the unique ability to express enigmas as if they were mere day-to-day events.

It is however a talent that Kazakh composer and pianist Korlan possesses and openly gives to the world as it is merely her way of expressing, as she says herself, “the purity, innocence and energy” of “children, animals and nature”. When you have her advanced composing and piano skills, you could be ‘limited’ to what music theory and practice have to offer. However if you add to that her natural talent as well as her great sensitivity and closeness to nature, the acceptance and harnessing of both the child and the animal within, you end up with evocative and powerful melodies as only she can serve to us in each of her piano pieces.

Korlan’s portfolio has it all, breadth, depth, moves you within, moves you without. Her own personality weaves around each key and chord to print a timeless legacy of breathtaking moments and emotional observations set in impeccable and exquisite music and fuelled by her love for humanity.

Human emotions find their resonance, from childhood feelings to adult emotions and the language of music rekindles with humanity at its core, as it suddenly becomes accessible, natural and even familiar.

PS: Although Korlan has now passed on, her legacy is currently being revived to ensure that the world knows about her music. One of the projects is to put on music sheets of her oeuvres, with orchestral accompaniments for some of them. She also worked with different artists to give additional dimensions to her work and this will be reflected in the projects.
