THE HIGHLIGHT DUO
When two iconoclastic musicians find each other, each of whom plays more than one instrument, is good in modern music and classical literature, and even write their own musical compositions – the result is SIXHANDSDUO!
Back in 2008 Lidiya Plastun and Nikolay Leschenko, both from Würzburg in Germany, resolved to create a Duo, which was yet neither known nor technically termed.
In 2012 SIXHANDSDUO presented several original compositions in jazz as well as an extraordinary all-round program. This includes solo and chamber pieces with various instrumentations.
Lidiya Plastun was born in the Ukrainian city of Lemberg. She began playing piano by the age of 5 and got her fist piano classes by the age of six. After graduation from the Ukrainian Solomia-Kruschenlnytska special music school for talented children, Lidiya Plastun was invited to the Academy of Musical Art in Darmstadt (Germany). There, from 2001 to 2005, Lidiya Plastun studied piano and educational science of piano with professor Ilya Scheps, Frederike Richter, professor Björn Lehmann as well as chamber music with professor Matthias Gräff-Schestag. This was followed with postgraduate studies by professor Björn Lehmann in piano and professor Sabine Bauer in cembalo, from which Lidiya graduated with honour in 2008.
From October 2008 Lidiya Plastun started her second postgraduate study at the Music Academy in Würzburg (Germany) by professor Markus Bellheim in piano and professor Glen Wilson in cembalo. Her third study as a concert pianist Lidiya successfully completed with professor Markus Bellheim in Würzburg in 2013.
As a young composer Lidiya has already received a price nomination at the International Competition of Young Composers in Grodno (White Russia). Lidiya Plastun gained numerous оf international awards.
Nikolay Lеschenko was born in the family of professional musicians in the Russian city of Astrachan. At the age of six he got his first music lessons in piano and violin from his parents. Half a year later he gave his first family concert.
From 2002 till 2006 Nikolay Leschenko studied at the State Academy of Music in Astrachan. During this time he was also nominated by the Rostropowitsch, Obeliyan and Yamaha foundations.
After Nikolay Leschenko has finished the State Academy in Russia, professor Grigory Zhislin noted his outstanding skills and invited him to Academy of Music in Würzburg (Germany). In Würzburg Nikolay Leschenko was educated in violin by professor Grigory Zhislin himself.
In order to follow up with the piano playing, one year later Nikolay started a dual education in piano by professor Bernd Glemser, where Nikolay Leschenko is currently teaching as an associate professor. Nikolay Leschenko gained numerous international awards.
