Album Description

The album contains 12 tracks which consists of Roman Miroshnichenko's own original compositions, several by guest composers, and some of Miroshnichenko's own interpretations and arrangements of well known pieces such as a selection from Sergei Rachmaninoff's "Piano Concerto No. 2", Aleksandr Borodin's "Polovtsian Dances", and the bonus track, Astor Piazzolla's "Libertango". The album cover artwork for "Surreal" is by American artist, Mike McGlothlen, and is in the style of legendary Surrealist painter, Salvador Dali. To paraphrase a Russian source quote of Dali, "Surrealism is full freedom of the human being and his right to dream." Roman Miroshnichenko says of his newest work, "I have called my album 'Surreal', because the material, in my opinion, is an expression of using my freedom to dream and create. I didn't think at all in terms of 'format' and 'conjuncture', as I see those concepts as a considerable part of what is making 'Modern' music less evolved. The idea for this album is for the listener to feel freedom and independence to 'hear' the real beauty and mastery of music; that which can only be appreciated when preconceived concepts and formulas of what makes a song are thrown out. I think my previous albums were great vehicles of getting my music noticed in the West, by garnering awards and positions on the Indie Charts, but in this new album, I feel I have managed to prove so much more as a composer and arranger, where each composition has become more of a narrative character." Awards, achievements: "Desperation"(track#3 on the album) - 1st Prize Winner of the 18th Annual USA songwriting competition 2013. "Forgotten Melody"(track#2 on the album) - "Honorable Mention" Award of the International Songwritting Competition, 2014 and 10th Annual IAMA (International Acoustic Music Awards) 2014 Finalist. "Open Heart"(track#7 on the album) - Semi-finalist of the International Songwritting Competition 2014. Considered for 56th Grammy/NARAS and 14th Latin Grammy nominations. "Best Instrumental composition" and "Best Instrumental Album" categories.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
