New release: ESTONIAN SUITE: LIVE IN TALLINN (CD&DVD)

Release date: September 21st, 2017

CD&DVD Solo piano concert recorded live in Tallinn on March 15, 2017, featuring works from The Estonian Trilogy studio albums “Winter Poems”, “Mimesis”,  and “Harmonic Etudes”, which will be released in 2018. All brand new compositions by Iñaki Sandoval.

The music of “Estonian Suite: Live in Tallinn” 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 closed eyes. 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 artist 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.
