This album is my homage to a composer and pianist whom I deeply admire, Sergei Rakhmaninov. All works presented here have been inspired by the notion of beauty in the broadest sense, of nature, of a face, of the scent of winter wind. An assiduous quest for musical beauty, of the ideal harmony for a particular moment, of form and structural logic, of contrasts, of melody and lively figuration have led me on a path of meticulous detail upon which I have frequently altered course, leaning towards the uncertainty of the new. Each piece is realised in such a manner as to depict the titular image in its poetic entirety. As is usual to my artistic process, none of these works have been notated; rather, they have been fully worked out in my mind. This process allows me to visualise both small and large ideas that constitute a work as tiles to be played with, moved and recombined according to spontaneous preference, and thus resulting in a vast number of potential manifestations. From such a vantage point, similar to a mountain peak or atop a skyscraper, I am able to arrange elements to conform to the most beautiful overarching shape.
