"The Passion of Russia" - Come and hear the new voice of Yulia!

This is an event for both the discerning audiophile and those devoted to seeking a purity in musical passion and emotion.

NZ’s No.1 hit selling Russian female solo vocalist performs the most passionate songs born in the heat of Russian culture and heritage.

Supported by Baritone Valeriy Maksymov and Concert Pianist Anya Maksymova from the Ukraine.

Yulia - "Voice of Rare Beauty"

Yulia has been working for several months with Valeriy Maksymov to condition and to further refine her already award winning voice in order to deliver a demanding program full of passion and requiring virtuoso performance.

Romantic song also abounds with excerpts from Dr Zhivago such as "Somewhere My Love" (see program in photos).

Valeriy Maksymov - Baritone

We introduce the big voice of Valeriy Maksymov for the first time on tour with Yulia. Now a Christchurch, New Zealand resident, Valeriy has won the affection and recommendation of such greats as Dame Malvina Major and is Yulia's favorite opera voice trainer. Valeriy first found favor with Yulia's fans when some of the 168 of Yulia's fans who were invited to enjoy her wedding also attended the reception and heard his performance of "Those Were The Days My Friend."

Anya Maksymova - Concert Pianist

Anya Maksymova is a young concert pianist of prodigious talent. Initially trained in Russian methods, Anya has continued her studies with a performance degree at Canterbury University. She aims to raise funds to attend the Royal College of Music in London and pursue a professional career as a touring Concert Pianist. Anya will perform such feats as might be partaken in her performance and interpretation of Rachmaninov, one of the greatest and most difficult composers to perform.
