Grace On Air
Grace on Air is a charming idea of how modern music is refracted through the prism of classical melodies. The pianist teamed up with opera singer Plamena Girginova and arranged well-known tracks by Nirvana, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Gwen Stefani and the Red Hot Chili Peppers in a very new and different way. The result was a very beautiful combination of classical music, which was served as the the perfect background for Plamena’s enchanting coloratura soprano. That way the well-known songs acquired a whole new sound in the form of opera arias.
The project was so successful that only a few months later the duo performed for a second time with a completely new program. “A dream within a dream” reunited Maria and Plamena, but this time the duo shared the stage with guest musicians. Together they performed many favorite songs and surprised the audience with a very interesting version of The Verve and Depeche mode’s tracks.
Maria Karakusheva has always loved experimenting with different styles, and seemingly incompatible music combinations have never stopped her. Her courage and her innovative mindset remove any style barrier, creating a new musical dimension to old classics. That way Maria gives new life to long established great works, transforming them with her impeccable sense for timeless classics.
