andrei poliakov

stories without words

Andrei Poliakov is a professional musician, composer and producer who received a fundamental classical music education as a pianist in Russia, continued with the professional musical career performing with several world-renowned orchestras, later diversifying his musical taste and capacity into jazz, rock, and pop genres, performing and recording with various bands and as a solo act.


Since 2012 Andrei has been living in Switzerland, Geneva, engaging into various professional activities both in artistic and business domains.

The usual basis for Andrei’s music is a well-educated classical, romantic soundscape, but as soon as the music begins, it starts looking for cross-over opportunities to develop into an exciting house-party, jazz, pop, or electronic music, all these easily transforming to warm classical follow-ups

Andrei treats a musical genre as an additional color for the compositions, like seasoning in food; these colors help him get across the emotions and tell the stories to the listener with better precision and stronger impact:

 

“I do not feel bound by a genre or a style, and instead I use and abuse the variety of styles to paint a deeper and more colorful, meaningful musical picture. Nevertheless, the Piano is always staying as a centerpiece of my compositions as I believe the richness and diversity of sounds of the “king of music” easily trumps any other instrument I know”.

Andrei Poliakov works with a Dutch sound producer Wouter Kronenberg, who shares the same passion for the fusion New Age music and helps create a sound palette that echoes Andrei’s ideas and brings the essence of the musical message forward.

Andrei’s previous works include piano albums: “RefleXions” (released in March 2019), “Four Seasons” (released in March 2020), and the current live album "Moonlight & Sunshine", started on 14.07.2020.

Andrei's devoted fans have been praising these albums for their everchanging mood, variety of rhythms and colors, an unpredictable development of the story, but most of all – for the honesty, sensibility, and empathy which resonated with audience.

“It’s a melodic madness that will simply hold your attention because you can’t wait to hear what notes will come next from this brilliant mind”

“A cornucopia of piano notes rings out in both slow and fast tempos. The song falls into a really nice fast groove that makes the music super catchy!”

“I went through a rollercoaster ride of many pleasant emotions throughout this piece”
