Elena Mikhailova, Vanessa Mae ,Interviu ,23 January, 2016 For the first time a classical musician is cover of Interviu
She has been living in Spain for 25 years. She has more than twenty national and international violin awards. She is the muse of the designer Agatha Ruiz de la Prada and an expert in the work of composer Pablo de Sarasate … but Elena Mikhailova is, above all , A woman who does not want to bend to the rancid rules of the classical world. A few years ago she came up with a tulip skirt, high heels and a top and rained the criticism of the most intolerant. Now, this woman of Russian-Armenian origin, who could not live anywhere other than Spain, has rebelled against convention: “I do not care what they say.The violinists are real women, who also feel sexy, not extraterrestrials. “
Elena values the bravery of violinists like Vanessa Mae, who has not only mixed classical pieces with pop, but has changed the rigid aesthetics of classical interpreters. “If you do not need to dress as a nun in order to be a pop star, why in classical music does everyone act long and black?”
Next Monday, in interviú, the violinist – daughter, granddaughter and great-granddaughter of musicians – will fuse elegance and sensuality in a photo shoot that will not leave you indifferent. If the photographer Man Ray would lift his head that interviú has paid tribute to her beautiful image ‘The violin of Ingres’ .
