Natallia Kapylova is a Belarus born concert pianist who has settled in India.
"The Hindu" commented on her performance in celebration of the 200th anniversary of Frédéric Chopin in Bangalore: "Natallia's strong yet gentle fingers(...) ebbed pure harmonic waves that tided the hearts of the listeners with sensitively tempered chords and notes...(She) displayed a beautiful spectrum of colored pianism with flowing nuanced expressions".
Natallia began her professional piano studies at the tender age of seven with her music teacher Natallia Cherstvaya for 11 years at the prestigious Belarus Lyceum of Arts in Minsk. Formed in the famous "Russian School", the young pianist continued her studies with renown Prof. Yushkevitch who assisted her as she mastered the difficult steps towards becoming a successful pianist at the Lunacharsky Conservatory (Belarus State Academy of Music) where she obtained a Bachelor of Music degree in classical piano. She also holds Artist of Chamber Ensemble and Concertmaster Diploma.
Around the same time, Natallia began teaching at the Belarus College of Arts and working as a concertmaster with conductor Prof. B. Pinchuk at the Conservatory. Following her graduation she continued her career with Music Band of Belarus Society of Blind, where she as professional pianist performed solo pieces, played with various ensemble formations, accompanied singers, solo instrumentalists and other performers in concert programs conducted for underprivileged and differently abled children. In addition to performing classical music throughout her own country, Natallia appeared both solo and with various musicians in performances of jazz music in Europe and Middle East.
Natallia's recital programs are a combination of baroque, classical, romantic and contemporary works. She has a wide variety of repertoire and styles to choose from, including classical and jazz music. When asked to name her personal favorites, she admits of having particular fondness for the composers such as Bach, Rachmaninov and Chopin.
