In my solo program I put together pieces that have the power to touch emotionally and focus on the piano sound.
My own improvisations become more and more important to me.

I am interested to receive inquiries from composers and welcome interdisciplinary projects.

2020/21: "Reflections"


Release of a bird"

In this program I combine my own improvisations with contemporary works from the 21st century. Among others works by Einojuhani Rautavaara

Martin Torp, Rodion Tschedrin, Peteris Vasks as well as works by J. S. Bach and F. Liszt in free ad hoc arranged interpretation.

Please send requests from festivals and promoters to Kaja

Polivaeva and Peter Hölscher. Detailed project description is available.

"Rules and Liberation"

compositions and improvisations for solo piano and solo guitar.

The program covers a wide range of diverse sounds and styles. Works by contemporary German composers are performed on the piano, while the guitar is mostly used to play original compositions, with influences from Turkish and Indian classical music as well as German folk songs.
