Premiere of “Estonian suite” for solo piano. March 15th, Mustpeade maja, Tallinn.
Iberofest presents the world premiere of “Estonian Suite” composed for solo piano and performed by Iñaki Sandoval. The work will be published shortly by Bebyne Records (www.bebyne.com).
The music is inspired by Estonia: its people, traditions and culture, its beautiful nature and landscapes, forests, lakes and rivers, its peacefulness, winter, solitude and silence. Under the prism of jazz and improvisation, the language is closer to the classical and impressionist music of the 20th century with influences of minimalism, folk and popular music.
“Estonian Suite” invites to withdrawal, meditation and inner reflection, even to listen with your eyes closed. The piano is located in the middle of the concert hall, with soft lighting and the audience forming a circle around the interpreter. The proximity of the interpreter and the audience make it possible to listen actively and closely, receiving directly the vibrations of the strings of the piano without intermediation. This is when the music no longer belongs to the artist, but to the listener.
