Kristina Vikhrova is one of Russia’s newly emerging musical stars. As a singer, in her final year at the Magnitorgorsk State Conservatory - one of just seven centres for musical excellence in Russia, she is preparing to launch her career on the international stage.
Under the wing of composer Professor Vladimir Sidorov she has developed an extensive repertoire, covering a range of musical genres including classical and Russian folk music, but her real passion lies in her ability to write and sing contemporary music. Her work has a compelling Eastern European texture, which is untainted by the often over manufactured sound of commercial pop.
She has a fresh but wonderfully melancholic voice, which is both impressive and moving. Kristina’s stage presence is complimented by her mystic and natural beauty, which make her live performances visually captivating as well musically distinctive.
Among her most recent work is a tri-part collaboration with French artist Bernard Pialat, and Vladimir Sidorov entitled ‘La Lune Blanche’ featuring newly written songs in French, English and Russian.
Kristina was born in Magnitogorsk in 1980, and she has developed a broad experience in the media, entertainment and arts industry, covering a variety of work including composition, drama, modelling and radio production demonstrating her all round versatility.
The Pleasure of Love (1998)
