EDITORS’ NOTES

There’s a wistfulness to this album that emerges from its faded colors and the vintage feel of the muffled piano on many of its tracks. French-Canadian pianist/composer Alexandra Stréliski’s music is fragile and vulnerable, its surface optimism a mask for her deep introspection. But it’s also calming: The opening “Plus tôt” is a reassuring waltz, “The Quiet Voice” a lilting, innocent miniature. Stréliski returns to the full-throated sound of a grand piano for the beautiful “Burnout Fugue,” a mesmerizing toccata, before delivering a gentle, rippling ballad, “Revient le jour.”

A Romantic Vision

While previewing this collection I envisioned a romantic stroll through a magical forest. I also imagined a vibrant, cool stream of crystal clear water flowing downhill over smooth stones into a pristine pool. So fresh and relaxing!

A walk with Phillip Glass and Erik Satie

I truly love this album. I was on a piano Facebook page talking about the style of piano that I like which is minimalistic in nature with some dark undertones. Phillip Glass, Erik Satie, and even George Winston. A person commented that I should give this album a listen. I was astounded! If Erik and Phillip Glass could make a baby, the product would sound like Stelinsky’s.

Lovely.

Haunting. Beautiful. Sad. Uplifting. If you like neo-classical music, or piano music in general, you'll love this album.
It reminds me of impressionist paintings. Stars at night. Clouds racing past the moon. Sea sounds. Satie. Debussy. Ravel. Yet modern.

Fantastique.
