Sonya Belousova is a 20-year-old Russian composer and pianist. She is the winner of the most prestigious award offered by the Russian Ministry of Culture as well as of international contests as a pianist and composer. Since she was 7 years old, she has been a constant performer in all the largest halls of Saint Petersburg and Moscow.

Belousova's individual style is based on the synthesis of Russian national traditions with contemporary techniques. Her melodic and harmonic language is striking for its brightness and richness. The instrumental texture and form in her works prove her thorough mastery of classical and modern writing. Her piano repertoire broadly represents contemporary classical music.
