Professional career[edit]

Belousova at the premiere of Orchis by the Festival Ballet Providence

Ballet[edit]

In 2013 Belousova was commissioned by the Festival Ballet Providence, Rhode Island’s premiere professional ballet company, to write music for the new ballet Orchis in collaboration with award winning choreographer Viktor Plotnikov.

I listen to the music, what it tells me…and I have the piece, — Plotnikov, to Rhode Island Public Radio.[17]

The ballet premiered on March 8, 2013 at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium along with Agon by Igor Stravinsky.[36] Described as "a big hit"[37] and "stunning collaboration"[38] Orchis returned to stage again the following season as a part of the Boundless Plotnkov program.[39] "Audiences were blown away by the eccentric, wide range of Sonya Belousova's original score, striking a rich parallel to Viktor Plotnikov’s unique choreography".[40] In recognition of Belousova’s many achievements as a composer and pianist "both in her native Russia and throughout the international music world", she received an honorary citation from the Mayor of Providence.[41] 

In 2014 Belousova was commissioned for another ballet, Surrogate. It premiered on November 1, 2014 as part of the Festival Ballet’s Up Close On Hope series.[42] "Accompanied by Sonya Belousova’s techno sounding original score, this thought-provoking piece questions whether we have all become 'surrogates,' unable to think and act for ourselves. Wearing tutus, three female dancers are accompanied by their male partners who move them about by grabbing hold of their ponytails." — Motif Magazine, describing the ballet.[43]

The House of Bernarda Alba premiered on March 4, 2016 and is an adaptation of Federico García Lorca's play popular in theatrical settings but rarely performed as a ballet.[44] "There is very little that is pretty about this piece, but it is thoroughly compelling. The movements are large, but awkward, and the daughters almost resemble marionettes manipulated by their controlling matriarch. Despite this, there is nothing that feels cartoonish, thanks in large part to the fantastic original score by Sonya Belousova. The visuals, dance and music all come together to create something that will linger in the viewer's mind for a long time." – Broadway World, describing the ballet.[45]

Player Piano[edit]

Belousova at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con

Belousova received a wide public recognition for her music project Player Piano created in collaboration with director and screenwriter Tom Grey. Player Piano was first introduced in 2013 as Cosplay Piano from executive producer Stan Lee on Stan Lee’s World of Heroes YouTube Channel.[4] In late 2014 Belousova and Grey formed Player Piano. To date Player Piano has totaled over 18 million views,[5] received multiple awards and has been widely covered by various media outlets including MTV,[46] Forbes,[47] The Examiner, USA Today,[48] Entertainment Weekly,[49] The Huffington Post,[50] Mashable,[51] Daily Dot,[52] CNET,[53] Digital Trends,[28] Moviepilot,[54] Classical MPR,[55] Jezebel,[56] etc.

Belousova composed, produced and performed her original arrangements ranging from virtuosic solo piano to large ensembles, often reimagining the original music themes and giving them "a new unique spin".[57] Grey directed and produced the music videos. 

In an interview with The Mary Sue Belousova said:

Just covering note-by-note someone’s music doesn’t particularly appeal to me as a composer. When our fans click on our video, they never know what to expect from it. It’s like opening a present, there’s an element of surprise. Moreover, I’m incredibly happy to have Tom as my partner in Player Piano. It’s just a perfect combination of me being in charge of all the music production and him dealing with all the video aspects to achieve great results.[58]

In 2013 Belousova appeared at the San Diego Comic Con and performed her original solo piano arrangements, which opened her panel with Stan Lee.[6][59] In 2014 she was invited as a soloist to perform her arrangements for a 70-piece orchestra, 30-piece choir featuring solo piano at a sold out crowd at the Anime Expo.[58][60]

Collaboration with Jorge Calandrelli[edit]

Belousova is known for her collaboration with 27 time Grammy 2 time Academy Award nominated producer, arranger and composer Jorge Calandrelli who described her as "one of the most talented young musicians I have met".[61] Calandrelli is producing Belousova’s album, which features her performing the piano pieces written by Calandrelli.[25] The album will also include Belousova’s duet with Tom Ranier performing Calandrelli’s famous concerto for jazz clarinet.[62] The recording sessions have begun at Capitol Records.

Belousova first collaborated with Calandrelli on Roberto Iarussi’s 2013 Album I Believe recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra.[63] In 2014 Belousova arranged and orchestrated Jingle Bells, Panis Angelicus and All Creatures of God for the upcoming Mario Frangoulis’s album Tales of Christmas, as well as provided electronic arrangements for Carpe Diem and Nature Boy. The album was recorded by the London Philharmonic Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios and features duets with Grammy Award winners Sarah Brightman and Marilyn Horne, and George Perris.[64] Belousova is also featured on the album as a pianist for Jingle Bells and Panis Angelicus.[65]

In 2014 Belousova performed Calandrelli’s piano pieces at the ASMAC Golden Score Awards honoring Maestro Calandrelli and Academy Award winning composer Michael Giacchino. Special guests for the event included: Grammy winner Arturo Sandoval, Grammy winner Walter Afanasieff, Grammy winner Kenny G, Grammy nominee Christian Jacob, Grammy nominee Calabria Foti, Tom Ranier, etc.[23]
