The “Moonlight & Sunshine” album has an unconventional structure for the modern classics genre: every next release features 2 different versions of one motive, coming to life as a piano solo piece, interpreting a narrative in the moonlight, and a fully arranged piece, revealing the same story under the sunshine.

The album is evolving live on the major streaming platforms as a playlist (Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and others), thereby gradually forming the full album as new pairs of tracks are released. The completion of the album “Moonlight and Sunshine” will take several months.

BIOGRAPHY

ANDREI POLIAKOV

Andrei Poliakov is a professional musician and composer 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.

Hence, 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.

“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’s previous works include albums: “RefleXions” (released in March 2019) and “Four Seasons” (released in March 2020).

 

His 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.
