Swetlana Meermann-Muret
Young Steinway Artist

Swetlana Meermann-Muret is located at the confluence of the three cultures russian, german and french. Each of them successively took place in the course of her life and she learned how to integrate and make them coexist to better serve her Art: Music. She has performed in Russia, Germany, France, Sweden, Switzerland, USA, Hungary, Czech republic, Ruanda.
From her roots, she cultivates the best and her musical heritage combines ideally a typical Russian expressive commitment (ardent and tinted of melancholy), an analytical rigor allied to an imaginary overflowing characteristic of her Germanic nature, and a freedom of mind "à la française" where the lightness of tone has sometimes adorned to a touch of irony.
Swetlana Meermann-Muret was able to learn in Russia how to play Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky, in Germany Bach and Brahms and in France Debussy and Ravel.
Her musical talents are expressed under multiple facets be it on the international scene in quality of soloist, chamber musician, accompanist or as a teacher.
A pianist sought for her finesse, her profession of performer has allowed her to address in concert a huge repertoire ranging from Baroque Music to Contemporary Music. She likes to make her public discover certain repertoires little frequented and it is not rare that she sprinkles her concerts of works by composers still too unjustly neglected such as Lekeu, Ljadov, Medtner, Gavrilin and Chedrin. It is also significant that her first CD included a work of Rodion Chedrin beside famous composers.
