My name is Natalia Pispini (Skvortsova). I am a composer of contemporary classical music.
As a Russian-native, I received my higher music education in former USSR. Piano studies in childhood, musicology studies in college, further musicology studies and specialization in ethnomusicology in conservatoire, doctoral degree, fieldwork recordings, archives and research on traditional music, lecturing… That was my professional path for many years. Then, what could be more adventurous and fascinating than this? And yet there was one more challenge I discovered for myself: composing music. I started it occasionally in 2014, just as trials. Very soon this became a ‘central point’ reflecting all that colorful and rich experience of my life. Now I am deeply involved in it, I enjoy my new journey and I would like to share it with you.
Currently I am splitting my time between the Middle East and Greece, places that inspire me immensely and give me new ideas, images and tunes. I am continuously working on developing my professional profile, reviewing subjects related to musical composition and, broadly, to music. My special concern is learning the contemporary approaches. I also search my own ways in electronic music.
I compose music in various styles and with different techniques, from classical to the very modern. Any historical styles or folk music patterns can be interesting to work with, when being placed into the new contexts. At present time I give priority to chamber music genres (vocal, choral, instruments solo and ensembles), but I am not limited by them.
My compositions are listed in the catalogue and – by categories – on the home page’s portfolio tabs. They are provided with descriptions (featuring the ideas, impressions, music structures and composing methods), score samples and, sometimes, electronic sound renderings.
I accept commissions. And I seek for performance of my music; if it is for premier playing than my works can be given at no charge. Please, use contact box to address your question or proposition. I will be glad to hear from you.
