George Ko – Thinking of Bach

“A very short but truly tasteful nod to Bach’s legacy that will probably have any mélomane with a soft spot for late Baroque period and a perfected counterpoint yearning for more.”

Known for his alluring sound, expressivity, and eloquence at the keyboard, pianist/composer George Ko has appeared on stages around the world, from 2000 seat auditoriums to Carnegie Hall. His music has been heard at film festivals, television broadcasts of ABC and CBC, and at music festivals in Italy, Germany, Luxembourg, and China. His recordings have appeared on films at the Tribeca Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, and on Netflix. His current discography encapsulates his musical style inspired by classical, jazz, R&B, and pop genres. It is in the pursuit of this style, George has created his very own improvisational technique, blending the virtuosity of classical and flexibility of jazz.

As a composer, George developed his artistry at Harvard University, where he received his bachelor's and honors in music. There, George debuted his first composition, which was premiered by the Grammy award-winning Parker Quartet. Recently, George is an active film composer and will have his piano compositions debuted in the upcoming Salt-N-Pepa Biopic to premiere on Lifetime in 2020. He was also the keynote artist performer for TEDx’s 2020 global sustainability conference, “COUNTDOWN”, co-hosted by Happily.

George is also a successful entrepreneur, having founded several companies and non-profits, in which he received the CES Innovation Award in Robotics in 2019, the Harvard Gov 2.0 Award for innovation in politics, and a patent in data management. George is also the co-founder of Giant Robot Media, an Asian-American digital magazine that discovers groundbreaking creatives throughout the world.

George has given inaugural concerts for the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Bowers Museum, and the Fogg Museum. He was invited to play at the request of President-Elect Joe Biden, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Senator Barbara Boxer. In recognition of his artistic talent, George was awarded the David McCord Prize from Harvard University. He is also a 5-time laureate of the Bradshaw and Buono International Piano Competition. George currently resides in Los Angeles, California. He is a Young Steinway Artist. You can find his music on all streaming platforms. George is on the Sonder House label.

Ruben Fjellner – Södermalm

“"Ruben Fjellner" has just released a warm and friendly piano creation, inspired from the streets of Stockholm city. Forgotten memories come up in the mind when we pass by an old and familiar place. The main concept of such music is to focus on those very special moments.”

A nostalgic single from Swedish pianist and composer Ruben Fjellner – telling the story of late nights spent on the streets of Södermalm, Stockholm with one of his long lost teenage love interests. Play- and cheerfully constructed over a peaceful baseline that lends itself as much for inner reflection as well as it does for joyous background listening.

Roman Wróblewski x Weronika Kulpa x BlauBird – Lamento

“In an intensely dramatic atmosphere and passionate style, three artists express their opposition to the war. Seize this opportunity to enjoy a great combination of piano, cello and vocal performance of another level that won’t leave you unaffected.”

“Lamento” is an inter-linguistic journey into the depths of one of the oldest traditions of lament. “There, among our memories, among the fragments of songs, words, and prayers we carry with us, is that which is sacred, our love, our humanity, and our ability to live one more day, to try to love always.” The main inspiration was words written in the Jerusalem Talmud: “Latin is adapted for war, the language of the host country for hymns, Hebrew for discussion, and Aramaic for lamentation.”

Mikael Oterhals – Longing

“Let yourself immerse in the silent beauty of Solo Piano and forget everything else during the following two minutes. A striking miniature of unpredictably sentimental touch that will change the way you realize sound. An invaluable diamond from the master "Mikael Oterhals".”

Leon Tomic – Verona

“Feel how all the nervous endings relax, the heart rhythm slows down and the time as if it stops. All you need is to sit down, close your eyes, take a deep breath and enjoy the chagging sounds of piano. (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Почувствуйте, как расслабляются все нервные окончания, ритм сердца замедляется и время как будто останавливается. Всё, что вам нужно, это присесть, закрыть глаза, сделать глубокий вдох и насладиться чарующими звуками фортепиано.”

Francois Mathian x Adrien de la Salle – Moonlight Prayer (Piano & Strings)

“When the night falls, the "Moonlight Prayer" can show you the way through its darkness. A peaceful combination of piano keys with violin strings, which can affect every sensitive soul. Neoclassical production of a higher level and the signature of two artists.”

Artist said about this song:

"After the positive reception of our previous collaboration Open Fields, Adrien came up with another idea on his piano, and when he shared it to me I could immediately connect with it to create and record the violin melodies and intimate strings."

Chiel Nugter – Waltz of the Dancing Puppets

“Beautiful, with a chamber orchestra from 9 Waltz musicians, which is able to turn the head of his melody. An excellent combination and selection of live tools, each of which is placed. Immortal classic in modern arrangement. (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Красивый, с камерным оркестром из 9 музыкантов вальс, который способен вскружить голову своей мелодией. Прекрасное сочетание и подбор живых инструментов, на каждом из которых сделан свой акцент. Бессмертная классика в современной аранжировке.”
