NY Elite: Tell us a little about yourself as an artist.
Elena Nuzman: I was born in a family of a concert pianist and a violin virtuoso in the former Soviet Union. I think I have music in my genes. At the age of 4 I started to play the piano and at the age of 17 already performed at many European concert halls. Rather by chance I took part in a song contest and won at one go to the category of Rock-Pop music.
In 2009 I had my breakthrough as a singer with the album “I believe in you” which was for a weeks in top 10 in Germany and Europe. After a number of tours including New York Broadway I am about to introduce my second album to the public. In my new album “Liebesträume” (Eng. Dream of Love) I just turned back to my roots fusing favorite classical compositions with single- turn popular arrangements.
