"Just like a great actor takes a play to the next level, so a great musician can find greater depths in a song. She hears every gesture, every clever harmonic turn, every moment of drama and focuses on it, re-contextualizing it in such a way that it seems new again. Like the fantastic classical musician she is, her covers make an excellent argument for the increasingly archaic role of the performer as just an interpreter of music, separate from the composer. I can’t stop smiling when I listen to Vika’s covers. They are perhaps the most awesome way yet to show someone that you truly GET metal." — Alee Karim, "Invisible Oranges",
"your version is the only cover version I have heard that I feel stands out in its own, you have captured not only the song, but the feeling and spirit within - truly incredible." - Graham Bailey from "The Sound"
Here you can find my self-created sheet music in PDF format.
I do not yet own all the rights to the works I've adapted for piano-solo, I made it available because of an extremely high demand for my arrangements and we are working on obtaining the rights for it.
If you are a rightholder, please contact me directly by email email@example.com
The songs have been arranged using my knowledge and experience as an educated and established classical concert pianist. I attempt to recreate the feeling of the original song the best way I can. Often it requires changing the form of the original song, adding lines and chords. Most of the time my arrangements are quite challenging to play.
When I first started covering songs, my sheet music would be quite rough as I wrote it down for myself and only shared it because people kept asking for it. For the past few months I have been making high quality sheet music that I store in PDF files. Since a lot of hours go into making these, I can't offer these for free. Instead, you can donate and I'll send you the sheet music of your choice ** (so be sure to specify which ones you want, or email me afterwards - doesnt have to be just one). Please be reasonable in your request though, I'm not going to send you all of my sheet music. Thanks for your understanding!
Due to the amount of work I already have, it might take some time depending on how busy I am. I will usually respond within several hours to let you know I have received your request though!
