La Promenade in Paris

The new release by Andrei Poliakov, dedicated to the city of Paris –

the city of love, romance, adventures, and fun

11th of December 2020

The first instrumental work of the release is called “La Promenade in Paris in the Moonlight”. It is featuring a solo piano work, depicting a nocturnal vibe of the city: mystical and sensual, yet somewhat cheeky and mischievous at the same time...

Listen here

... the music is taking a listener on a lonely walk during the night across Paris under the shine of the Moon: moving from the quiet beauty of sleepy side streets into the lively area of Montmartre, walking past the grandiose Le Louvre and the Eiffel Tower, enjoying peaceful splashes of cozy water at the shores of Seine, diverting to the Centre Pompidou to embrace the craziness of diverse crowds out there during the night.

This promenade is evoking certain nostalgic feelings, as music is fusing jazz and neoclassical styles. The inspiration for this release came from the movie “Midnight in Paris” and helped Andrei relive his own memories and experience impressions from countless visits to this city.

In January 2021 Andrei will follow up with the second track of the release

"La Promenade in Paris in the Sunshine" - a cheeky and romantic tune, featuring an array of various instruments, built on the same motive yet depicting sunny Paris. Listen to this tune now

La Promenade in Paris will become a part of Andrei's live album "Moonlight and Sunshine".
