La Promenade in Paris
The new release by Andrei Poliakov, dedicated to the city of Paris –
the city of love, romance, adventures, and fun
22th of January 2021
This instrumental work is called “
La Promenade in Paris in the Sunshine”: it builds its
mood and color on the previously released solo piano piece called “La Promenade in Paris
in the Moonlight”. It is featuring an array of various live instruments, depicting a bright and
sunny vibe of the city: romantic and frivolous, yet dynamic and playful at the same time.
The music relates Andrei’s personal real live story, when he was stranded in Paris with his friend with no money to spare for a couple of days.
They discovered this city from its inner side,
typically hidden from a tourist; experienced many adventures and met lots of great
people; and then eventually had to come to la Place de Pompidou and play a guitar and a
clarinet to make some money to get to the airport.
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.
La Promenade in Paris will become a part of Andrei's live album "Moonlight and Sunshine".
